Vox Media co-founder Joshua Topolsky had a gross accusation for Daily Wire Editor-In-Chief Ben Shapiro on Twitter Saturday.
"Ben Shapiro is the Jew who helps other Jews onto the train," Topolsky tweeted as a reference to Nazi Germany during World War II.
One Twitter user replied, "Yes, and Ben dreams of the handshake and shiny medal he'll get for being such an obedient boy," which prompted Topolsky to respond, "Either way Ben ends up on his knees."
Topolsky deleted both of his vulgar tweets, but refused to apologize.
I deleted it because a mob of right wing babies were flooding my mentions and it was frankly pretty annoying (as were the DM death threats).— Joshua Topolsky (@joshuatopolsky) July 1, 2018
I didn't apologize lol— Joshua Topolsky (@joshuatopolsky) July 1, 2018
When one user asked, "You didn’t delete it bc it was an abhorrent thing to say?" Topolsky responded, "No."

He later added, "This tweet is cool ftr [for the record]."
Shapiro has not responded to the tweets.
According to the Anti Defamation League (ADL), Shapiro was the number one target of anti-Semitism online in 2016.
Shapiro is open about his devout Jewish faith and takes part in the weekly Shabbat, when despite his popularity, he stays off of the internet and refrains from any media activity.
