William Shatner has been on a tear against social justice warriors lately for being easily offended, and now he’s going after a Texas Democrat for using his image in a campaign mailer.

The “Star Trek” legend ordered Brandy Chambers, candidate for the Texas House of Representatives, to “remove my photo and destroy all copies of whatever this is immediately” when she used the autographed picture in campaign literature.

A fan asked the actor on Twitter if he was endorsing Chambers.

Shatner replied with his demand the picture be destroyed. He tweeted to Chambers saying, “using a convention picture in a political ad is NOT ALLOWED!! That implies endorsement which never will happen. Please remove my photo and destroy all copies of whatever this is immediately. Am I clear?”

Shanter regularly attends comic-cons across the country where he signs autographs and poses for pictures with fans for a fee. Those pictures are not for commercial use.

In his tweet, Shatner also tagged the Texas Ethics Commission, the governing body of election law in the state.

For her part, Chambers denied doing anything wrong.

Chambers did not publicly respond to Shatner’s tweet.
