A Kentucky woman is being investigated by the Secret Service for writing a tweet suggesting someone assassinate President Donald Trump, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports.

"If someone was cruel enough to assassinate MLK, maybe someone will be kind enough to assassinate Trump,” Heather Lowrey wrote in a now-deleted message that contained the hashtags #bekind #trump #lovetrumpshate.

A Secret Service agent told the Journal that investigations are always conducted "any time threatening communications like that are made."

Lowrey posted the tweet on Tuesday. Her account has been deleted since then, as has her Facebook page. She has also been terminated as a contract worker by one of her employers.

"Heather Lowrey is no longer contracted with the Travis Moody Agency. The Travis Moody Agency, its agents and its staff do not share the same views, nor opinions as Heather Lowrey," said American Income Life in a statement. "We have a zero-tolerance policy and would never condone this behavior.”

The Heyman Talent Agency also said it was no longer working with Lowrey.

"Heather Lowrey is no longer contracted with the Heyman Talent Agency. Our company does not share the same views, nor opinions as Heather Lowrey. We would never condone this behavior and have zero tolerance for hatred and negativity,” the company wrote in a tweet.

A Florida man was arrested on Jan. 20 for allegedly threatening to kill Trump at his inauguration, a statement he made in a video he posted on Twitter.
