An ammunition company “celebrated” the death of Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein by offering customers a discount, according to a Twitter post.
In a post on Twitter, Fenix Ammunition, based out of Michigan, said it would be offering “free shipping” to customers in California.
“To celebrate the death of @SenFeinstein, we’re offering free shipping on ammunition to California customers today through October 31st,” the company wrote in its post. Feinstein died Thursday at the age of 90 at her home in Washington, D.C.
To celebrate the death of @SenFeinstein, we’re offering free shipping on ammunition to California customers today through October 31st.
Simply select “Good Riddance, Dianne” at checkout!
“Simply select ‘Good Riddance, Dianne’ at checkout!” the post from the company continued. “Evil authoritarians should be mocked in death the same as they are in life.”
Several Twitter users responded to the company’s post by pointing out they believe it went “too far” and was written in poor taste.
Elected in 1992, Feinstein had been the oldest sitting U.S. Senator at the time of her death. She was seen as a supporter of the women’s rights movement and helped lead the movement to ban assault weapons during the Clinton administration.
