The details surrounding a church shooting in Texas are still very murky, but that didn’t stop comedian Chelsea Handler from propagating anti-Second Amendment, anti-GOP propaganda.

What did she say?

“Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot in killed. What country? America. Why? Republicans.” Handler tweeted.

How did people react?

Given that officials fear at least two dozen people are dead, with at least 20 others injured, the reaction to Handler’s tweet was brutal and swift. More than 6,000 people have replied to the tweet, and the responses continue to pour in.
