Caitlyn Jenner Joked About The GOP Baseball Attack And Twitter Isn't Happy

Caitlyn Jenner has gotten herself into hot water following a comment she made about last week's shooting at the congressional baseball practice. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was critically injured in the attack, and three others were wounded, but Jenner joked that at least "liberals can't even shoot straight." Understandably, the internet is not happy.

@Caitlyn_Jenner Really? Liberals can't shoot straight. We should solve disagreements peacefully, stop taunting people to shoot straighter.

@Caitlyn_Jenner Your comment on the shooting of a Congressman, saying liberals can't shoot straight is ignorant while 1 fights 4 his life.

Hopefully Jenner clears the air soon. There's far too much terrible stuff happening in the world for people to spend all their energy voicing outrage against a celebrity, rather than a politician.
