Chelsea Handler is facing backlash after posting a tweet which implies Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is a closeted gay man.

“Holy, fuck fuck. I just the video of trumps bipartisan “meeting” yesterday. Hey, @LindseyGrahamSC what kind of dick sucking video do they have on you for you 2 be acting like this? Wouldn’t coming out be more honorable?” Handler tweeted in reference to President Donald Trump’s bipartisan immigration meeting with lawmakers on Tuesday.

Graham, who is single, has been the target of gay rumors for years which he has denied.

“I know it’s really gonna upset a lot of gay men — I’m sure hundreds of ’em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge — but I ain’t available. I ain’t gay. Sorry,” Graham told the New York Times in 2010.

The tweet, which has received more than 20,000 likes, was considered by many to be “anti-gay” and offensive.

Handler has not yet responded to the criticism and the tweet has not been deleted.
