The Muppets writer and producer Nell Scovell reacted to the recent news that multiple tornadoes tore through the state of Kentucky killing at least 50 by blaming the state’s Senators.
Scovell, whose credits also include The Simpsons, Warehouse 13, NCIS, Charmed, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, took to Twitter to blast Kentucky’s Senators.
She wrote, “Sorry Kentucky. Maybe if your 2 senators hadn’t spent decades blocking legislation to reduce climate change, you wouldn’t be suffering from climate disasters.”
“If it’s any consolation, McConnell and Rand have f’ed over all of us, too,” she added.
In a subsequent tweet, she wrote, “Tie FEMA aid to US senators from that state’s vote to tax carbon, stop fracking, support solar and address Climate Change.”
“No federal clean up funds for people who have helped create the disaster,” she suggested.
Scovell has since deleted the above tweets, and claims they were twisted.
She wrote on Twitter, “My tweet has been twisted into something it is not. My hate is directed toward the senators from KY who have endangered all our lives with their reckless denial of science and toadying to corporate interests.”
“Prayers for the people of KY who are suffering along w/so many others,” she added.
