‘Hi mom’: 18-year-old ‘liberal lesbian’ exposes family on Twitter for attending Capitol riots

An 18-year-old Massachusetts girl exposed her family members on Twitter after she recognized them as participants in last week’s Capitol riot.

Helena Duke described the move as emotional in an interview with Good Morning America but said that “at the same time, if I did nothing I felt that I was as bad as them,” according to a local ABC outlet.

Rioters supporting President Donald Trump stormed the United States Capitol building Jan. 6, committing acts of vandalism and postponing the certification process as members of Congress were forced to evacuate the building. Duke found pictures of her mother, uncle and aunt participating in the riot and posted them to Twitter, the ABC affiliate reported.

“Hi mom,” Duke tweeted in a post that has since gone viral. “Remember the time you told me I shouldn’t go to BLM protests because they could get violent…this you?”

“Hi this is the liberal lesbian of the family who has been kicked out multiple times for her views and for going to BLM protests to care what happens to me,” Duke tweeted in a separate post, before naming her family members.

She replied to her own tweet with several more pictures, adding, “for those that don’t believe it’s my mother…”

Duke did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Authorities have said that five people died during the storming of the Capitol on Wednesday. One woman died of a gunshot wound, three persons “suffered medical emergencies,” and a police officer died from injuries sustained while “physically engaging with protesters.” An additional Capitol Police officer died in an off-duty incident, suspected to be suicide, on Friday, and a man arrested in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot has reportedly killed himself.
