Twitter removed a tweet from former Malaysian leader Mahathir Mohamad for glorifying violence after a knife-wielding Muslim killed three people in an attack at a church in the southern French city of Nice on Thursday.

This attack was the second deadly incident of Islamic terrorism in France in less than two weeks, following on the heels of the beheading of middle school teacher Samuel Paty, who showed caricatures of the Muhammad for a class on free speech.

Mahathir, the 95-year old former Malaysian prime minister, claimed the deaths of French people would be justified, in the wake of attacks that French authorities attributed to Muslim extremists.

“Muslims have a right to be angry and to kill millions of people for the massacres of the past,” he said Thursday, in a series of tweets that began with his thoughts on the beheading of Paty.

Twitter at first put a label on the tweet saying it glorified violence but left it up because it “may be in the public’s interest.”

The tweet was later removed and replaced with a tag saying it broke the rules. The company said it took action for violating its policy on the glorification of violence, which doesn’t allow threats against individuals or a group of people.
