Twitter users jumped to denounce a tweet expressing solidarity with Republicans in light of the Wednesday attack on a congressional baseball practice that left multiple people on the field injured.

Lawrence Lessig, a Harvard law professor, tweeted out a message of support after reported gunman James T. Hodgkinson shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and other staffers at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Congressional Baseball Shooter Dies At Hospital)

“We are #AllRepublicansToday. So incredibly sad,” Lessig wrote.


Various activists and leaders were quick to renounce the idea of being linked with Republicans, declaring “no we aren’t” in subsequent re-tweets of Lessig’s message.


“Not I said this black man,” Black Lives Matter activist Deray Mckesson tweeted.



“Are republicans still collaborators in a foreign coup against our democracy?” Patrick S. Tomlinson, a contributor to the Hill and The New York Times, tweeted. “Yes? Then no, we aren’t.”
