On Sunday, staffers at the Capital Gazette published an op-ed remembering those lost when a gunman entered their newsroom.

They also thanked those who reached out with kindness after that horrific day.

However, they also pointed out that not everyone was so kind.

“Here’s what else we won’t forget: Death threats and emails from people we don’t know celebrating our loss, or the people who called for one of our reporters to get fired because she got angry and cursed on national television after witnessing her friends getting shot,” they wrote.

Then, in what appears to be a direct jab at President Donald Trump, the staffers stressed, “We won’t forget being called an enemy of the people. No, we won’t forget that. Because exposing evil, shining light on wrongs and fighting injustice is what we do.”
