Republican presidential hopeful former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tweeted Tuesday an image of his handgun along with the simple one-word caption, “America.” The response was swift and strong.

Moments after the GOP candidate published the gun shot, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden responded, telling Bush, “Delete your account.”

From there, the criticism continued to grow as Twitter users mocked Bush’s post, citing other American stereotypes and even making political arguments for gun control. Rapper Kanye West made his way into the controversy, too.
