Forbes on Monday posted about what it called “Unprompted Attacks On Gaza” — then deleted the post after backlash ensued against the magazine — following the unprovoked terrorist attacks from Hamas on Israel over the weekend that killed hundreds of people.

In the since-deleted post on X, the American business magazine shared a headline that read, “Hamas Threatens To Execute Israeli Civilian Hostages For Unprompted Attacks On Gaza.”

The reaction was swift, with one follower after another calling out the magazine, and the post was soon deleted — but not before people had taken screenshots of the headline or captured the reaction others had to the shocking post.

“This might be the worst headline of the year,” one person wrote.

Another wrote, “‘Unprompted’ was the word used by Hamas, so naturally Forbes just acted as stenographers.”

While another wrote, “Um … say, idiots?! The very fact they have HOSTAGES means the attacks were more than prompted. The media and the administration are in a contest to see which will be deleting the most horrid opinions about the Israeli attacks. Latest entrant [Forbes].”

One follower captured the post before it was deleted and the Forbes headline on its website that now reads, “Hamas Threatens To Execute Israeli Civilian Hostages For Attacks On Gaza ‘Without Prior Warning.'” At the time of this publication, the link to article still includes “unprompted attacks.”

“Incase you were wondering how [Forbes] sees the Hamas attacks on innocent civilians… Shot… chaser!” the person wrote.

Another added sarcastically, “Unprompted? Look, I know you people have a job to do with the whole ‘spin’ thing. At least put in the effort to make it sound reasonable. That was a parody tier lede.”

While another wrote, “I guess invading, kidnapping, raping, and murdering civilians is ‘unprompted.'”
