A Minnesota sheriff deputy is under fire after writing a disrespectful tweet saying Diamond Phillips, the girlfriend of the late Philando Castile, will spend her settlement money on crack.

Minnesota Star Tribune reports that Tom McBroom Sr., a Rice County Sheriff Deputy and Councilman wrote the tweet after Phillips received settlement from the city for false arrest and emotional distress after police shot and killed Castile as he sat next to her in July 2016.

Below is the tweet that has since been erased.
