Star Trek superstar George Takei is getting a harsh lesson about how its typically not very good form to kick a man while he’s down, especially when that man is Steve Scalise.

Takei is a prominent liberal figure and a member of the LGBT community, and he decided to offer some pointed thoughts this weekend about the Louisiana Republican congressman. Takei sent out these tweets while Scalise is still in the hospital, recovering from the gunshot wounds he suffered after he and his colleagues came under attack as they practiced for the Congressional Baseball Game:

The second tweet has now been deleted. Despite the point Takei was making about Scalise and Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner, there were a lot of people who really didn’t appreciate this kind of shot at Scalise:

Scalise’s office announced today that he is showing further signs of improvements as he continues to recover.
