On “The Rubin Report,” BlazeTV host Dave Rubin called out Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley who tweeted — then deleted — support for violent solutions after actor Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock for making an offensive joke at the Oscars.

Pressley tweeted and then promptly deleted support for Smith's violent reaction to Rock's about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s alopecia areata.

""#Alopecia nation stand up! Thank you #WillSmith,” Pressley, who also has alopecia, tweeted. “Shout out to all the husbands who defend their wives living with alopecia in the face of daily ignorance & insults ... Women with baldies are for real men only only. boys need not apply."

After deleting her initial tweet, Pressley changed her tune and posted a new tweet saying she does not "endorse violence in any form."

Dave shared his own experience with alopecia but emphasized that the leftist message "violence is okay when you're offended" is anything but okay.

"You're allowed to joke about people, and then people are allowed to make fun of you. They're allowed to not associate with you. They're allowed to mock you ... they're not allowed to physically assault you," Dave said. "This is what laws are. We have freedom of speech and if someone says something mean to you, you can ignore them or you can say something mean to them, but you can't attack them."
