A Missouri state senator tweeted “F–K you” at Gov. Jay Nixon (D) Thursday morning, seemingly upset by his absence from the protests in Ferguson.

Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D), who represents the Ferguson area, has spent time in the city during the protests. KMOZ reported Wednesday that Chapelle-Nadal said she had been hit with tear gas while standing with protesters.

She continued her online criticism of Nixon on Thursday afternoon.
