Pro-Gun Grab Critic Loses Mind, Calls Opponents ‘R*******’, A ‘F***ing Dips***’ On Twitter
Chuy Garcia replied to a gun control opponent on his official Twitter account Friday night in a profanity-laced tweet.
He's a supporter of a gun-grabbing bill in the House of Representatives in the U.S.
Garcia, who supported the House’s legislation that would ban certain semi-automatic firearms, tweeted his celebration of the bill’s passage. ”I just voted to reinstate the assault weapons ban. Now it’s the Senate’s turn to pass it and send it to President Biden’s desk,” he said.
An anonymous Twitter account wasn’t happy with the congressman’s support of the gun control legislation and replied to Garcia’s tweet, writing “Never even heard of this guy and I won’t comply even if his silly law passes.”
Instead of letting the jab go like most politicians do on social media, Garcia’s official Twitter account responded to the tweet with obscene language.
“You are borderline retarded, ya f***ing dips***,” Garcia tweeted.
The response was taken down two hours later, according to Fox News’ Joseph Wulfsohn, but not before multiple people captured screenshots of the congressman’s profanity-laced insult.
Garcia issued a statement Saturday, explaining that the tweet was not approved by him and was written by someone on his staff.
“Last night a member of Congressman García’s staff posted an unauthorized tweet from the Congressman’s account using profanities and offensive language to individuals living with disabilities,” the statement read. “The language used was absolutely inappropriate and inconsistent with Congressman Garcia’s history, values, and character. The individual responsible will be held accountable and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.”
