According to the Baltimore Sun, the campaign of Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous recently removed a “like” from a six-month-old tweet that mocked #BlueLivesMatter.

According to the Sun, Twitter user @CaponeOFFICIAL retweeted a @BenJealous tweet that linked to an article about corrupt Baltimore police. The Jealous campaign’s tweet states, “Among the many reasons to end the failed war on the drugs is the way it has corrupted too many police officers.” The attached article from The Root included the mug shots of seven convicted Baltimore police officers.

@CaponeOFFICIAL then retweeted the Jealous post, saying, “Yet people still believe cops are saints, and Freddie Gray killed himself. F— #BlueLivesMatter and all these dirty [expletive] cops. You aren’t a cop if you’re dirty…you’re a target to the criminal world. If you get killed…that’s on you.”

A spokesman for the Democratic candidate for Maryland governor said the “like” was an accident by a staffer for the campaign.
