U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was loudly booed after she attempted to address the crowd at a Somali music festival.

The far-left congresswoman made an appearance at the concert that featured Somali singer Soldaan Seraar at the Target Center in Minneapolis on Saturday night in order to present the singer with an award. Festival goers were celebrating Somali Week, which commemorates Somali independence. The Minneapolis area is home to the nation’s largest Somali community.

Omar received a chorus of boos while attendees could be heard chanting “get out!” while others told her to “get the **ck out of here.”

The congresswoman did post a short clip of the event on her social media pages. “It was an honor to welcome you to our incredible city,” the Democratic congresswoman wrote in a tweet, accompanied by a 14-second clip that ended moments after the audience began to rain down boos.

It is unclear exactly why the crowd was so against Ilhan Omar, a Somali American. A report from Newsweek speculated that the predominantly Muslim crowd took issue with Omar’s support for abortion and LBGT causes, however.

Omar has been one of the most vocal members of Congress in the wake of the Supreme Court’s landmark abortion ruling and was one of the first to attend pro-abortion rallies.

“In almost half of this country, states are ready to ban abortion,” Omar said at a protest at Union Station. “Outright ban abortion. That means if you are sick, if you are raped, there is incest, you are forced to have that baby or die.”

Omar is one of many Democrats who have called for aggressive measures in order to codify Roe V. Wade, including court packing and nuking the filibuster.
