The original tweet from the Women's March account celebrated Shakur as a "revolutionary", and included an image with the words "a woman's place is in the struggle", a quote from Shakur.

Shakur, a member of the extremist Black Liberation Army, was serving a life sentence for murder when she escaped from a New Jersey prison. We do not. That does not mean we don't respect and appreciate her anti-racism work, "tweeted the Women's March". She was charged with murder after she and some companions gunned down New Jersey state troopers during a traffic stop.

"#AssataShakur took a militant approach. The circumstances behind the escape are unknown".

CNN anchor Jake Tapper slammed the silence from "progressives" that refused to condemn the Women's March tweeting out support of a cop killer Tuesday. This, ugly sentiments from @lsarsour & @dykemarchchi.
