A violent incident has taken place, and it occurred in a mailer featuring books that are for sale. One such book was deemed offensive by some, and a big apology was apparently in order:

A book that says stuff you don't agree with is "violence," but torching someone's store is "speech."
It's bat-guano insane stuff like this that has even many trans allies thinking the Left are completely unbalanced. https://t.co/Hqk59kmtLX

Reduced to pretending a book is violence.
It’s embarrassing. https://t.co/9PJVzCj7rA

Welcome to America.
Rioters burning a pawn shop and suffocating a person inside is not violence.
Mailing a book is violence.

We’ve officially entered the Upside-Down.
The book burners are the bad guys. Just FYI.

Imagine selling books for a living and not knowing what "violent" means https://t.co/0a9SdDbVYI

Hyperbole is linguistic murder.

What was the title of the supposed "anti-trans" book or do you expect us just to take your word on it, like you expect us to be happy with censorship?

This is apparently the book in question:

American Booksellers Association is having a craven, gutless meltdown about mentioning a book by @AbigailShrier that some woke activists don't like.
If you think the American publishing industry defends freedom of thought, you are delusional. https://t.co/nZAjG0svNm
