Amy Poehler slams the NRA for using 'Parks and Recreation' GIF

Amy Poehler

He wrote, "our good-hearted show and especially our Leslie Knope represent the opposite of your pro-slaughter agenda - take it down".

But when Parks And Rec creator Michael Schur caught wind of it, he wasn't about to let the NRA use relentlessly positive civil servant Leslie to promote their views.

The actress is taking a stand against the NRA after the organization used of GIF of her "Parks and Recreation" character Leslie Knope in a tweet which thanked spokesperson Dana Loesch, who appeared at a CNN town hall on Wednesday night.

"Thank you for being the voice of over 5 Million #NRA members", the tweet read.

Nick Offerman, who plays the lovably stiff libertarian Ron Swanson, had a harsher message for the influential organization. "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-k off?'"

"Take it down and also please eat shit", he added.

Offerman was less polite. He ended his post with an emoji of the USA flag.

Schur wasn't the only person to tweet his displeasure at the NRA.

Both Loesch and Rubio faced criticism from the Parkland shooting survivors and the parents of victims at Wednesday's live discussion event.

One explanation could be the high school students who have started to advocate for stricter gun laws after 17 of their teachers and classmates died in a barrage of gunfire.

On Wednesday, numerous survivors and their parents confronted both Sen.

Schur, who now runs the NBC sitcom "The Good Place", has used his Twitter account to voice his support of tougher gun control laws, and he pulls no punches.
