Jewish Scandal star Joshua Malina blasted President Barack Obama on Monday for suggesting that the Jan. 9 Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket attack in Paris was a random act of terror.

“‘Random?’ Islamic jihadists targeting Jews at a kosher market is ‘random?'” Malina, 49, asked on Twitter, adding, “Umm..seems like it would be better described as ‘specific.'”

President Obama spoke about the Paris supermarket attack, which left four Jews dead, in a recent interview with Vox.com. He told the publication, “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.”

Though some Twitter users defended the president’s remarks, Malina tweeted, “Poor choice of words, in any event.”

“At a time when it’s vitally important to highlight the non-random nature of the act, the President misspoke,” he added.
