Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur took exception to the NRA sharing a GIF from the show on its official Twitter account on Wednesday night, and the prolific producer demanded they take it down as he didn't want the show to promote a "pro-slaughter agenda."

Following Dana Loesch's appearance on the CNN town hall debating gun control in the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting, the NRA tweeted a thank you tweet featuring Amy Poehler's Parks and Rec character Leslie Knope giving a thumbs up.

Schur, whose Twitter handle is @KenTremendous, tweeted back that the gun lobby should take down the tweet as he "would prefer you not use a GIF from a show I worked on to promote your pro-slaughter agenda." 

He added: "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--- off?"
