Even Ron Swanson thinks this is the woooooooorst.
"Parks and Recreation" co-creator Michael Schur and stars Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, and Nick Offerman were not happy that the National Rifle Association used a GIF from their NBC show to thank an NRA spokesperson.
Here's the GIF the NRA used, showing Poehler's character Leslie Knope:

That was sent as thanks to Dana Loesch, who represented the NRA in a CNN town hall with Parkland, Florida residents, a week after the mass shooting that killed 17 people.
For the NRA to use a GIF of left wing idealist Leslie Knope of all people didn't sit right with show co-creator Schur, who tweeted a message from himself, and from Poehler:
"Hi, please take this down. I would prefer you not use a GIF from a show I worked on to promote your pro-slaughter agenda.
Also, Amy isn't on twitter, but she texted me a message: "Can you tweet the NRA for me and tell them I said f*ck off?"
Nick Offerman played the very conservative Ron Swanson, a more likely character to have anything to do with the NRA. The actor himself is very different, and he shared his own message:

Adam Scott, who played Leslie's husband Ben, tweeted his own foul-mouthed response:
@nra please stay the f*ck away from Leslie Knope."
The NRA isn't taking the GIF down. But if you're a "Parks and Rec" fan, you can treat yo self to the debate raging in the tweet replies.
