A senior adviser for Planned Parenthood was scorched on Twitter Thursday for sending a mean tweet to a high school girl who asked Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv to prom.

The high school girl tweeted out a conversation she had with Kashuv, where the Marjory Stoneman Douglas student and pro-Second Amendment activist said he would go to prom with her if she got 5,000 retweets.

Elizabeth Thorp criticized the girl for asking Kashuv, tweeting, “Hard pass, sweet girl. You can do better.”

Nearly 600 people replied to Thorp’s comment, calling her out for “bullying” high schoolers. Kashuv even weighed in on the tweet, writing, “Why does @ElizabethEThorp feel bullying a Parkland survivor is okay? More importantly, why is she bullying my date?”

Thorp denied she was bullying the girl and insisted she was just giving her “motherly advice.”

Nonetheless, Twitter users weren’t buying her excuse.
