Actor John Cusack has received major backlash on Twitter after he blamed “a bot” for retweeting an antisemitic meme featuring a fake Voltaire quote and a large hand bearing the star of David.

Of course, many people asked exactly what kind of bot would be able to trick someone into tweeting such a thing.

Cusack then dug himself an even deeper hole by tweeting a new definition of  “bot” as “an alt right account - same thing- not a person but an organized agenda.” It did not go over well.

Cusack then tried to point out his real "reason" for tweeting - calling out Elizabeth Warren for supporting Israel’s bombing of Gaza schools in 2014 - but it still did no good..
