In a surprising turn of events, the press secretary for the Democratic governor of Arizona allegedly took to Twitter to share a controversial gif, depicting an angry woman brandishing two guns. The tweet has since been removed, but not before it was seen by many, including Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who expressed his outrage at the insensitivity of the message.
Cruz responded on Twitter, writing, “This is horrific. After a deranged lunatic who was trans murdered 6 people at a Christian School—including three 9-year-olds—the press secretary for the current Dem governor of AZ tweets out a gif of an angry woman brandishing two guns. What the hell??”
The tweet by the press secretary has been met with backlash from both sides of the aisle, as many view it as an inappropriate response to such a devastating event. Several prominent politicians and commentators have taken to social media to condemn the message, calling for the press secretary’s resignation.
The governor of Arizona has yet to release an official statement on the incident, but sources say that an announcement is expected soon.
The tragic event has reignited the ongoing debate on gun control, mental health, and the role of political discourse in such situations.
As the community mourns the loss of the six lives taken, questions continue to be raised about the appropriateness of the press secretary’s tweet and the impact it may have on the already tense political climate surrounding the issue of gun control.
The investigation into the Tennessee school shooting is ongoing, and authorities are working tirelessly to uncover the motives behind the attack and bring closure to the affected families.
