Amber Heard urged in a now-deleted tweet for people to drive their “housekeeper, nannies, and landscapers” home to protect them from ICE checkpoints.

“Just heard there’s an ICE checkpoint in hollywood, jut a few blocks from where I live. Everyone better give their housekeepers, nannies, and landscapers a ride home tonight..” the actress wrote, apparently in a joking manner.

Twitter users decried Heard’s message, accusing her of stereotyping and pretending to care about immigration issues.

In previous tweets, Heard has advocated for an end to the family separations at the border as well as ICE checkpoints. In one, she stood outside a child detention facility protesting alongside actors such as Connie Britton and Bella Thorne.

However, commenters were quick to remind her of the morning’s ill-advised tweet.
