A Richardson, Texas, city councilman apologized and deleted his Twitter account after he called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) a “bimbo” in a tweet.

Scott Dunn wrote in a now-private Facebook post that he was sorry for the “offensive” remarks he says he used in defense of President Trump‘s State of the Union address, according to the New York Daily News.

“The words I used were offensive,” Dunn wrote, according to the Daily News. “I am responsible for my own words and actions. I apologize to anyone who finds what I said offensive.”

Twitter users and other Richardson officials criticized Dunn for his language after he called the New York lawmaker a “bimbo” with “nothing between your ear” in apparent response to a tweet from Ocasio-Cortez calling the president’s State of the Union address an “embarrassment” for the nation. – READ MORE
