The digital platform Oath announced it has canceled a talk show starring a sibling social media duo after it was revealed their mother is a well-known Islamophobe.
According to The Daily Beast, an Oath spokesperson said they canceled the show The Morning Breath and launched an investigation. The show was hosted by Claudia Oshry (above right) and Jackie Oshry (above left), who were previously known for their Instagram @GirlWithNoJob and @JackieOProblems.
“The Morning Breath, an Oath social-media show, is being canceled immediately and we have launched an internal investigation and will take other appropriate steps based on the results of the investigation,” the spokesperson said.
The cancellation happened after The Daily Beast published a story Wednesday which detailed the problematic connection the sisters have with their anti-Muslim mother, Pamela Geller. Although they tried to distance themselves from their conspiracy theorist mother, the girls have also tweeted support of President Donald Trump, and mocked President Barack Obama.
In a statement, Claudia Oshry said she and her sister do not share their mother’s anti-Muslim beliefs.
“We want to be clear to our audience and fans that our political and cultural beliefs are not anti-Muslim or anti-anyone,” she said. “Our views are separate from our mother’s. Being raised by a single parent, we were taught to make our own choices based on our personal beliefs. We are inspired to think for ourselves and we do. We do not condone discrimination or racist beliefs of any kind."
However, a series of deleted tweets suggests both Claudia and Jackie share some similar views as their mother.
"I can't help but feel like I'm funding terrorism when I take a cab," Claudia tweeted in 2014.
"Listening to Obama talk about ISIS is like listening to me talk about quantum physics," she later tweeted in 2015.
Jackie retweeted her sister's tweet about Obama, adding: "Listening to Obama talk about ISIS is like listening to me talk about boys. I too don't understand the enemy."
