Actress Veena Malik — sometimes known as Zahida Malik — raised eyebrows after she tweeted a quote she attributed to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, which referenced killing Jews across the world.
Malik's tweet came at a time when clashes between Israel and Palestine have hit a fevered pitch.
What are the details?
According to a Wednesday report from the Post Millennial, the 37-year-old Pakistani Muslim actress tweeted a graphic that read, "I would have killed all the Jews of the world ... but I kept some to show the world why I killed them. Adolf Hitler"
It remains unknown whether the Nazi dictator ever actually uttered or wrote those words.
While the offending tweet is gone, the actress's Twitter page remains active at the time of this reporting.
New York Magazine writer Yashar Ali captured the tweet before it was deleted.
Ali tweeted, "How is this still up???" and later added, "This tweet is now gone along with a bunch of other tweets on her account. Looking forward to an apology from all those who doubted me."

The actress has yet to issue a statement of apology or clarification at the time of this reporting.
According to OpIndia, Malik has been recently outspoken in her condemnation of Jews.
The outlet reported, "Malik has since been glorifying the attack on Israelis and cheering the death and destruction. In her subsequent tweets in Urdu, she urged Muslims to not be disheartened and said that if they are truly 'believers,' then they would be proud."
On Tuesday night, Palestinians carried out ruthless attacks on Israelis with rockets and more.
Amid the chaos, Israeli city of Lod Mayor Yair Revivo compared the deadly attacks to the Nazi campaign of death against Jews and said, "This is Kristallnacht."
In remarks, Revivo implored the nation's prime minister to declare a state of emergency.
"This is Kristallnacht in Lod," said Mayor Yair Revivo. "I have called on the prime minister to declare a state of emergency in Lod. To call in the [Israel Defense Forces]. To impose a curfew. To restore quiet. ... There is a failure of governance. ... This is a giant incident — an Intifada of Arab Israelis. All the work we have done here for years [on coexistence] has gone down the drain."
He added, "All of Israel should know, this is a complete loss of control. ... This is unthinkable. Synagogues are being burned. Hundreds of cars set alight. Hundreds of Arab thugs are roaming the streets. ... Civil war has erupted in Lod. ... The Orthodox-nationalist community here has guns. I'm imploring them to go back home but they understandably want to protect their homes. Petrol bombs are being thrown into [Jewish] homes. The situation is incendiary."
According to the New York Post, Hamas on Tuesday fired at least 130 rockets at Tel Aviv alone.
