Just days after a mass shooting at an LGBTQ club in Colorado Springs killed five people and injured many more, Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, whose Twitter account was recently reinstated by Elon Musk, took to the platform to hurl an anti-LGBTQ slur at State Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco.

It all started on Sunday when Wiener tweeted“The word ‘groomer’ is a definite anti-LGBTQ hate word. It’s super homophobic/transphobic. It plays into the slander that LGBTQ people are pedophiles. It’s no different than calling someone ‘un un (gay slur) If you call someone a groomer, you are inciting violence against LGBTQ people.

Greene, reinstated over the weekend, tweeted Wiener’s post on Tuesday and used it to promote a bill she authored that would block transgender children from receiving gender-affirming treatment.

“Pass my Protecting the Innocence of Children Act to stop communist groomers like this from using the power of the state government to take children away from their parents to enable a for-profit medical industry to cut off the genitals of these confused children before they are even of voting age,” Greene wrote.

Wiener, who has drafted several pro-LGBTQ bills, including one that makes California a sanctuary for families seeking gender-affirming treatment for their children, is no stranger to hate tweets.

He has answered by Twitter Greene’s tweet on Wednesday was a “pretty deft mix of McCarthy red-baiting & gay-baiting.”

“For the record, his ‘Protecting the Innocence of Children Act’ comes very close to banning trans people from existing. Oh & Kevin McCarthy will empower him,” Wiener wrote.

Assemblyman Matt Haney, D-San Francisco, replied coming to Wiener’s defense on Twitter, condemning Greene’s tweet.

“This kind of rhetoric, immediately following a mass hate crime that killed 5 people simply because of who they are, is intended to lead to intimidation, fear and violence. We are 100% with the LGBTQ community and we all need to speak out to confront the hate,” Haney wrote.
