GEORGIA Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has been slammed by the media various times due to her controversial opinions.
Greene issued an apology on Monday, June 14, 2021, over comments regarding coronavirus vaccinations.
Why did Marjorie Taylor Greene apologize?
Marjorie Taylor Greene issued a public apology while speaking to reporters outside of the nation’s Capitol.
The US representative caught heat after comparing coronavirus mask mandates and vaccination cards to the Holocaust, ultimately saying she was “truly sorry.”
Greene told the press: “I’m truly sorry for offending people with remarks about the Holocaust.”
“There’s no comparison and there never ever will be.”

Her apology comes after Democrats and Republicans criticized her for saying that forcing masks or vaccines was like forcing Jewish people to wear stars in Nazi Germany.
Greene claimed to have visited the US Holocaust museum in Washington DC and realized the errors in her comments.
“Anti-Semitism is true hate – and I saw that today at the Holocaust Museum,” she said.
She had initially made the comments during the appearance on the conservative cable network Real America’s Voice in May.
What did politicians say about Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Holocaust comments?
Representative Adam Kinzinger, one of three House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump and remove Greene from her committee work, said her remarks were “absolute sickness.”
In an appearance on CNN, Representative Peter Meijer said that Greene’s comments were “beyond reprehensible.”
“Well, first off, any comparisons to the Holocaust it’s beyond reprehensible,” he said.
“This is — I don’t even have words to describe how disappointing it is to see this hyperbolic speech that, frankly amps up and plays into a lot of the anti-Semitism that we’ve been seeing in our society today.”

Illinois Democratic Representative Brad Schneider announced plans to introduce a censure resolution over Greene’s comments.
“When @RepMTG repeatedly compared the US Covid-response to Hitler and the Holocaust, she dishonored the millions of lives lost in WWII and the Shoah,” Schneider tweeted.
“She has forgotten America’s fight against the Nazi menace.”
House members had voted in February to remove Greene from her duties after suggesting that the Parkland, Florida mass shooting was a “false flag” operation.
Greene had also stoked flames to a conspiracy theory that claimed a space laser controlled by Jewish financiers had started a California wildfire in 2018.
What did Marjorie Taylor Greene call Nancy Pelosi?
Greene accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of being “mentally ill” while slamming coronavirus restrictions.
“This woman [Pelosi] is mentally ill,” she began.
“You know, we can look back in a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star, and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens — so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany.
“This is exactly the type of abuse Nancy Pelosi is talking about,” she said.

Amid the controversy of her anti-semitic comments, Greene refused to backtrack her statement, insisting she “said nothing wrong.”
“I stand by all of my statements, I said nothing wrong,” she told KPNX.
“I think any rational Jewish person didn’t like what happened in Nazi Germany & any rational Jewish person doesn’t like what’s happening with overbearing mask mandates and overbearing vaccine policies.”
