Rosie O’Donnell, the comedian who has since fashioned herself as a social media activist thanks to her long-lasting feud with President Donald Trump, has now been accused by some Twitter users of committing a felony on the platform.

On Tuesday, as members of Congress were gearing up to vote on the GOP tax bill that ultimately passed through, O’Donnell took to Twitter to offer a serious amount of cash to a pair of Republican senators who have broken ranks with the party in the past

“so how about this/ I promise to give/ 2 million dollars to senator susan Collins and 2 million to senator jeff flake/ if they vote NO/ NO I WILL NOT KILL AMERICANS/ FOR THE SUOER RICH/ DM me susan/ DM me jeff/ no shit/ 2 million/ cash/ each,” O’Donnell wrote (dramatic line breaks hers).

The one-time “View” host followed up with a direct message to Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) that included a picture of the lawmaker with her family.

“susan – 2 million dollars cash/ call if u want to negotiate/ do u think your family is proud of u @sennatorcollins/ woman – mother – grandmother – sister – daughter – you have betrayed us all/ dear god/ ask for forgiveness/ redeem ur soul tomorrow/ #NOTSEXIST,” O’Donnell fired.

A later rant saw O’Donnell ramp up the hysterics with an all-caps tirade against Collins:

Now, some users are blasting O’Donnell for offering a whopping $4 million to change the senators’ votes, claiming that posting such a bribe is actually illegal and punishable by a lengthy prison sentence.

However, some pundits have defended O’Donnell’s actions by noting that, according to the letter of the law, she would have had to “corruptly” post the tweets with “intent to influence” the senators. As a comedian and political commentator, O’Donnell would likely be able to skirt bribery charges by characterizing her remarks as performance art or hyperbolic speech.
