Rob Lowe recently took a jab at Warren, who, now that she’s running for president, is being haunted more than ever by the whole fake-Indian thing.

He took down the tweet, but followed it up by instead mocking the people who got so offended in the first place.

We shouldn’t apologize for offended people with humor, we should leave it out on full display until the meltage of snowflakes is so unremarkable we stop paying attention to it entirely.

Who’s with me?
