People who vote for certain candidates should have their children taken away, according to one television show writer. Jen Statsky, who has written for “Parks & Recreation” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” sent out a tweet Saturday that is receiving plenty of backlash, as it suggests that those who elected President Donald J. Trump are not fit to have children.
According to her Twitter account, Statsky currently writes for “The Good Place,” a sitcom about a woman who died and went to the “good place” in the afterlife, yet later discovers that she’s been sent there in error, having led a less-than-stellar life on earth.
Statsky’s gloomy description on Twitter reads: “i write for the good place and broad city and i wrote for parks and recreation and lady dynamite and i’m still gonna die someday.”
Her Saturday tweet was not unusual for the writer, as she has many times used the social media platform to bash President Trump and his supporters, even wishing injury or illness on them.
The uproar over her tweet may be because her claim — that children should be taken from their parents — activates a parental instinct to protect one’s children.
Statsky’s tweet read: “light reminder that being president of the US means nothing anymore, if you support Trump you should have your children taken away, etc etc.”

On Twitter, the reaction appears to be largely negative, with dares of “just try” (to take them) and “we will vote Trump for generations.”
One user, @khomeara64, revised Statsky’s tweet to read, “Light reminder that being @jenstatsky means nothing to anyone, if you like her you should never be allowed to have children. There, fixed it.” (See these tweets below.)
In other tweets, Statsky wrote savage remarks, such as “quick reminder that if you voted for Trump you should drink bleach,” (in May) and, “I know things seem grim right now, but let’s remain optimistic: maybe Trump will get cancer?” (in July).
In January, Statsky tweeted: “A tour of the country where I fistfight people who voted for Donald Trump, is that a good use of my time?”

Another progressive dividing dialogue.
So happy I escaped them and their ideology.
