This news medium had reported that more than 200 persons were brutally murdered in the multiple bombings that hit the Asian nation on Sunday.
World leaders have been reacting to the incidents in Sri Lanka but Obama was singled out for describing those killed as “Easter worshippers.”
Many users of Twitter have taken to the website to berate him for calling them “Easter worshippers” instead of Christians.
Some of them accused him of being biased and feigning ignorance that those killed in the bombings were Christians.
Concise News captured some of the reactions to Obama’s statement on the Sri Lanka bombings:

We are Christians and not Easter worshippers, we celebrate Easter we don’t worship it. I know that you know this but you just chose to disrespect a religion because you don’t believe in it. The shame is on you sir. pic.twitter.com/808jVeSpzJ

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton using “Easter Worshippers” instead of Christians is a deliberate evil.
Donald Trump winning US election was a divine intervention to delay the anti-Christ a little while.
We celebrate Easter NOT worship it. We’re Christians NOT idol worshippers. pic.twitter.com/dmWb49Clqu

Christians is the word you’re failing to mention, Prime Minister. Christians massacred as they prayed. https://t.co/r4d7MfJY2c

The people killed in Sri Lanka weren’t Easter worshippers they were Christians. You have no problem staying other faiths. The Christians who were killed senselessly are heroes. Please show some respect for them. Christians they were Christians. Followers of Christ pic.twitter.com/EMDGSlFVBy

Our leading broadcasters have seemed unable to utter the word “Christian” in regard either to Notre Dame or the Sri Lankan murders. Bizarre.

"Easter worshippers" – Clinton and Obama seem to be finding it awfully difficult to just come out and say the victims are "Christians". 🤔 pic.twitter.com/5Tt7tyGsEu

What da F**K is Easter Worshippers
If you can't say Christians then just shut up.
If @realDonaldTrump wasn't @POTUS am certain the whole world would have been overran by ISIS because of Democrats love for Radical Islamic Terrorist.
Anti Christ is who they are. pic.twitter.com/B40pVhq4Zd
