Dean Obeidallah (pictured) is asking for more than $1 million in a lawsuit filed against a neo-Nazi website run by Andrew Anglin called The Daily Stormer. Obeidallah hosts a three-hour weekday show on SiriusXM’s Progress channel (127).
Obeidallah, a Muslim-American, says Anglin falsely accused him of being the mastermind behind a deadly bombing at a concert in England.
Obeidallah said he received death threats after Anglin published an article about him in 2017. According to The Minnesota Star-Tribune, the lawsuit alleges that Anglin’s website embedded fabricated messages in the article to make them seem like they had been sent from Obeidallah’s Twitter account, tricking readers into believing he took responsibility for the May 2017 terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert.
