Jeanine Pirro is under fire following an appearance on “Fox & Friends” in which she compared the shut down of the Parler app to Kristallnacht.

The Nazi pogrom, also known as the Night of Broken Glass, was carried out in 1938 by Nazis in Germany. During that time, they destroyed Jewish businesses, synagogues, and homes. Jewish people were then rounded up and sent to concentration camps.

During Pirro’s appearance on the show, she discussed the recent shutdown of the Parler app, which is favored by conservatives and Trump supporters, especially after Trump's bans from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

In the past, the app has allegedly been used to incite violence and was used by some of the participants in the Capitol riot. Five people have died as a result of the riot.

The social media platform has since been taken out of the app stores on Amazon, Apple, and Google, leaving the app virtually homeless, CNN reports.

“Well look, they gave us a taste of this pre-election when they suppressed the Hunter Biden story,” Pirro said, referring to when Twitter limited the content on a story about Biden’s alleged connections to Russia ahead of the 2020 election due to a lack of credibility.

“And now that they’ve won, what we’re seeing is the kind of censorship that is akin to a Kristallnacht, where they decide what we can communicate about,” she added.

People on Twitter were outraged by Pirro’s comments comparing the massacre of Jewish people to the end of the Parler app.

“The de-platforming of Parler is not ‘akin to a Kristallnacht’ because nobody died, de-platforming might prevent deaths, and the folks on Parler were more likely to try and replicate an *actual* Kristallnacht. That is all,” one person wrote.

Another person added, “Parler functions largely as a 'free speech' haven for antisemites and neo-Nazis who’ve been kicked off other platforms for such horribleness. To equate shutting Parler down with Kristallnacht is spitting on the graves of those who died in the Holocaust. Shame on these idiots.”

Meanwhile, Politico writer Renato Mariotti suggested the storming of the Capitol should be compared to Kristallnacht rather than the de-platforming of an app.

“Comparing Amazon’s decision not to do business with a social media website to the murder and imprisonment of Jews is outrageous. If you’re going to compare any recent event to Kristallnacht, it would be the recent attack by a violent mob of white supremacists,” the columnist tweeted.

Mariotti appeared to share similar sentiments with former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who slammed Trump for inciting the Capitol riot and compared it to Kristallnacht.

“I grew up in Austria. I’m very aware of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass,” Schwarzenegger said in a Twitter video on Sunday. “It was a night of rampage carried out in 1938 by the Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys.”

Schwarzenegger went on to call the riots the “Day of Broken Glass right here in the United States” and slammed the rioters for "[trampling] the very principles on which our country was founded."
