Sirtis, who plays Deanna Troi on Star Trek, wrote on Twitter, “Don’t get me wrong, my heart bleeds for what Texans are going through right now but the mean girl in me says you get the government you deserve and they have voted Republican, across the board, for the last 20 years. #BetoForGovernor.”

One Twitter user SienneSage would respond to Sirtis saying, “No, but your words are generalizing a whole state and making us all seem like we all deserve to die because we ‘all’ voted republican. It would be like me saying that everyone who were affected in the CA wildfires should’ve ‘just no lived in CA and they wouldn’t be affected’.”

Sirtis responded to this tweet writing, “I love how you’re putting words into my mouth. Where did I say people deserve to die. I was making a point that the Republicans in the state legislature have screwed you royally for over 20 years. Thank you.”
