The United Nations' top human rights official says derogatory remarks by US President Donald Trump about journalists could amount to incitement and embolden followers to attack certain communities.
He lashed out last week over coverage of his reaction to the Charlottesville rally earlier this month, where a woman was killed and at least 19 were injured after a vehicle drove into counter-protesters.
"It's sort of a stunning turnaround".
"It's a sort of stunning turnaround, and ultimately the sequences are unsafe one: incitement and fear, self-censorship, banning and then violence", he added.
At a campaign-style rally last week in Phoenix, Trump said journalists are "truly dishonest people" for criticizing his reaction to the violence.
Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein also made his first public comments decrying racist and anti-Semitic cries by far-right groups in Charlottesville, Virginia, calling the events on its streets "an abomination" and "a nightmare".
