A senior BuzzFeed editor is drawing controversy after making a statement that some are saying is "anti-white" and "racist".

The remarks come from Rachel Sanders who run BuzzFeed's "READER" section. In a tweet addressed to her 8,000+ Twitter followers, Sanders tweeted out Monday "if you have a story to tell that helps make sense of the world right now, please get in touch (my email's in bio).


The tweet seemed innocent enough, considering the political turmoil many Americans are feeling nationwide. However, things went downhill when Sanders tweeted out another tweet shortly after, seemingly to condemn those who are a "white american citizen", telling them to "think extra hard before you think send."


The tweet received instant back-lash, with some upset Twitter users calling Sanders "racist", and others mocking her, as one asked; "How about if I write it and have my Latina assistant send it?".


Op-Editor of the New York Post, Seth Mandel also mocked Buzzfeed, writing "Amazing."

A man named Aaron Worthing, who claims to be an attorney in D.C., tweeted to Sanders asking: "did you clear that with your compliance attorney? bc you just opened your company to lawsuits."

After the scare from Worthing, Sanders replied claiming claiming she only asked people to “consider what they say before they send it.” However, Worthing pointed out that her tweet showed “actual prejudice based on race, sex & country of origin.”


Sean Davis, editor of The Federal tweeted out to Sanders: “BuzzFeed senior editor wants essays about America, but not from white people. P.S. This is how you got Trump.”

Sanders eventually tweeted out later: “an addendum for anyone confused by this: i mean it purely & only literally, as in, think about what you have to say before you say it.” As of now, it is unclear if Sanders will receive any punishment for her remarks. BuzzFeed declined to comment from multiple sources that reached out to them on this matter.
