Actor Rob Lowe tweeted and deleted a joke making fun of Senator Elizebeth Warren upon her announcement of her run for the 2020 Democrat nomination for president.
The actor jumped to his Twitter account on Saturday to joke about Warren being a new Commander in “Chief.”
Notorious anti-capitalist, proto-socialist, and fake Native American, Senator Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren, officially kicked off her run for the 2020 nomination for president of the United States on Saturday.
During her speech, the Senator kept talking about how she wants to be an advocate for “people of color,” but we now know that she spent her entire educational career (she worked in academia before going into politics) claiming to be a Native American and actually taking opportunities away from real people of color.
Indeed, Warren recently admitted that she told numerous colleges and universities that she was a Native American on applications and other paperwork she filed in order to receive benefits for minorities from the colleges when she applied at for various jobs.
So, as it happens, Lowe’s joke is perfectly logical and funny. After all, Warren has been forced to apologize for years of lying about being a Native American.
Still, Lowe later deleted the tweet saying, “I deleted my Elizabeth Warren tweet. It was a joke and some peeps got upset, and that’s never my intention. On the GOOD side: I just got to use the Oxford comma!”

But, almost immediately, many of his elite Hollywood pals attacked him for the joke.
According to Yahoo, several Hollywoodiots scolded Lowe for the joke:

“What a raw blow!”
— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) February 10, 2019
“That’s not funny.”

“Just when I was liking Rob Lowe after his moving comments about being his mom’s caretaker—he takes a page from Trump. Ick. You shouldn’t do this: https://t.co/TUgmoMNn8B”

Of course, all those tweets are gone now, too, because Lowe deleted the tweet they were answering.
