A Florida assistant state’s attorney is facing serious trouble after calling Orlando a “melting pot of 3rd world miscreants and ghetto thugs,” a “national embarrassment” and more in a Facebook post following the shooting at the gay nightclub.

The Florida State Attorney’s Office suspended Assistant State Attorney Kenneth Lewis Friday for a Facebook tirade after the Orlando terror attack that left 53 wounded and 50 dead, including the shooter. In the Facebook post, Lewis lambasts the city’s crime and calls it “void of culture,” WESH reports.

He goes on to sarcastically show his concern that the race or religion of the shooter might offend someone.

Downtown Orlando has no bottom. The entire city should be leveled. It is void of a single redeeming quality. It is a melting pot of 3rd world miscreants and ghetto thugs. It is void of culture. If you live down there you do it at your own risk and at your own peril. If you go down there after dark there is seriously something wrong with you. Disney does everything in its power to shield visitors of Disney from its northern blight. That doesn’t change reality. Disney may be the happiest place on earth but Orlando is a national embarrassment. If this is an act of domestic terrorist it is so very important that we don’t publish the religion, name, or motive of the terrorist as not to offend anyone.

After the first post, Lewis went on to attack gay night club goers.

“All Orlando nightclubs should be permanently closed,” he wrote. “With or without random gunmen they are zoos; utter cesspools of debauchery.”

The suspension is not the first time Lewis has faced trouble for his social media use. He mocked all the “crack hoes out there” in a post on Mother’s Day in 2014. For that offense, he was reassigned and had to take sensitivity training.

“Happy Mother’s Day to all the crack hoes out there. It’s never too late to turn it around,” the post read. “Tie your tubes. Clean up your life and make a difference to someone out there that deserves a better mother.”
