After facing complaints of those affected by the Parkland, Fla., school shooting at the Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action town hall, the National Rifle Association thanked its representative Dana Loesch on Twitter.
\u201c.@DLoesch thank you for being the voice of over 5 Million #NRA members.\u201d
The GIF, which featured Amy Poehler's character on Parks and Recreation, was not appreciated. Several people associated with the show spoke out against its use by the anti-gun control organization, including Michael Shur, the co-creator of the show.
\u201cHi, please take this down. I would prefer you not use a GIF from a show I worked on to promote your pro-slaughter agenda. \n\nAlso, Amy isn't on twitter, but she texted me a message: "Can you tweet the NRA for me and tell them I said fuck off?" https://t.co/YXSdzCdvdd\u201d
Nick Offerman, who played Ron Swanson on the show, is on Twitter. So is Adam Scott, who played Ben Wyatt.
\u201c.@NRA @DLoesch our good-hearted show and especially our Leslie Knope represent the opposite of your pro-slaughter agenda - take it down and also please eat shit. \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 https://t.co/Ar2YF4yoic\u201d
