A CNN photo editor resigned on Thursday night after tweeting an anti-Semitic statement before landing a job with the network.

The now-former CNN employee, Mohammed Elshamy, referred to victims killed in a terror attack as “Jewish pigs” which was unearthed by political strategist Arthur Schwartz.

CNN said in a statement:

“The network has accepted the resignation of a photo editor, who joined CNN earlier this year after anti-Semitic statements he’d made in 2011 came to light."

“CNN is committed to maintaining a workplace in which every employee feels safe, secure, and free from discrimination regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion.”

Schwartz promptly tagged d CNN’s verified public relations account after discovering the tweet, alerting the already struggling network to the racist tweets.

"Hey @CNNPR," Schwartz wrote during a series of tweets.

"You should have @KFILE look into the social media activities of your employees. He might find things like this gem from CNN’s @elshamyme talking about 'Jewish pigs' killed by Palestinian terrorists."

Elshamy has since made his Twitter account private.

NewsBusters’ Nicholas Fondacaro called out the network for hiring Elshamy int he first place.

“For all of CNN’s suggestions that President Trump was a racist and anti-Semite, they sure don’t seem to catch those tendencies of prospective employees during the hiring process,” Fondacaro wrote.

"Instead, they have them resign after they’re exposed on social media. It’s especially troubling when the prospective employee had publicly celebrated the deaths of ‘Jewish pigs’ in Jerusalem."

Jordan Schachtel, a reporter for the Daily Wire, noted the terror attack was a “bombing that killed a Christian woman,” which injured a 14-year-old Israeli girl who died of her wounds six years later.

Last week Neon Nettle reported CNN saw its ratings plummet even further in 2019 as one of its recent decisions has also brought its credibility into question.

While Fox News averaged 1.3 million viewers in the second quarter ratings for cable shows, CNN saw well below half of that with 541,000 total viewers.

The gap in primetime was even more pronounced, with Fox News as number one and CNN in 15th place, averaging 761,000 viewers to Fox’s 2.4 million.

According to Forbes, CNN’s second-quarter viewership average was 18 percent lower than in 2018.
