American Sniper’s Chris Kyle is once again under media attack – this time from former RT anchor Abby Martin. 

Last week, Abby Martin took to her Instagram account to attack Texan war hero Chris Kyle. “Rocking a one of a kind F*ck #ChrisKyle creation,” she wrote in a caption accompanying a picture of her wearing a shirt with the words, “F*ck Chris Kyle!”

In the past, Martin bashed Kyle for describing Iraqis as “savages” in his book and deemed the American Sniper film as “dangerous propaganda that sanitizes a mass murdering psycho,” Raw Story reported.

While Martin has come under some awful or inappropriate attacks on social media, Raw Story treated the shirt as if it were legitimate critique.

Surrounding the January release of American Sniper, the media and celebrities have viciously attacked the deceased Navy SEAL – from calling him a “coward” and “a racist” who “went on killing sprees” to labeling him a “psychopath patriot.”
