The controversial tweet, featuring a screenshot from a recent episode of crime drama The Good Fight, was repeatedly reported to the Secret Service before its deletion.

CBS has been forced to delete a tweet featuring a list including the words “Assassinate – President – Trump” from a recent episode of one of its shows.

The tweet, containing the photo and the awkward phrase “Hmmm…some of those target words look a little familiar. Did you catch any easter eggs in this scene from The One Where Diane Joins The Resistance?”, riled up Trump fans on Twitter over its ‘inciteful’ language. In addition to the Trump assassination message, the list also featured the words “Eliminate – Mar-a-Lago” side by side in the second column, in reference to the president’s Florida home.

Eagle-eyed Twitter users slammed the network and pointed out that threatening the president was a felony, with the offence punishable by up to five years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and 3 years of supervised release, with other punishments, including deportation if the death threat is made by an immigrant, possible.
