Missouri State Senator Says She Tweeted "F*ck You" At Governor Because She Was Tear-Gassed

"Anyone who's going to get tear-gassed deserves to say a few 'F' bombs here and there."

Posted on August 18, 2014, at 5:27 p.m. ET

A Democratic Missouri state senator representing parts of Ferguson who tweeted multiple times "Fuck you," at Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon defended her choice of words on Fox News on Monday, saying she did so because she was tear-gassed for three days.

"The reason why I used profane language is because he has allowed us to get tear-gassed for three days," Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said. "I am one of his senators in his party and he was at the state fair enjoying a country concert while we were getting tear-gassed and shot at. And yes, anyone who's going to get tear-gassed deserves to say a few 'F' bombs here and there."

Chappelle-Nadal also slammed Nixon because, she said, he has been absent from the minority community "his entire career."

"I represent my constituents, not Gov. Nixon," the senator said. "He has been absent from the minority community his entire career and only comes before us when it is politically expedient for him. Or when he's running for office, and because he has been outside of this community...let me tell you this, and this is important for your audience to know. He has still yet to come to ground zero. Yet to come to ground zero. He's been in Florissant, he's been in Normandy, but he has not spoken to the victims of the crisis we are dealing with and that is why I have called him a coward."
