CBS and its crime drama “The Good Fight” are under heavy fire after a tweet featuring an image from one episode  shows a list of “target words” including “Assassinate,” “President” and “Trump.”

The since-deleted tweet posted Friday showed an image from a recent episode titled, “The One Where Diane Joins the Resistance,” and asked viewers if they had noticed any “Easter eggs” in the scene which also included a list with the words: “Mar-a-Lago” and “Eliminate.”

The “Esater egg” reference reportedly connected to a character in “The Good Wife,” Kalinda, whose name was in the second column, according to Fox News. According to a synopsis of the episode, Diane, played by actress Christine Baranski, “is encouraged to ‘do something’ after meeting the leader of a female resistance group whose aim is to sink POTUS’ approval rating.”

The tweet and the episode scene sparked widespread outrage on Twitter.

“This is absolutely abhorrent and cannot be tolerated. Will @CBS allow this garbage? The show should be dropped immediately,” one user tweeted.

Others blasted CBS All Access for the “terrible image” they portrayed to viewers.

Many were more than alarmed and reported the tweet to the authorities.

Many Twitter users condemned the double standard, noting how the left continues to get away with what they denounce by the right.

President Trump is still being raked over the coals for his tweet last week calling out Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar and her incendiary remarks about 9/11. Democrats and the left grabbed their pitchforks and torches, demanding he apologize, take down his tweet – which features video of Omar speaking in her own words – and even renewed calls for his impeachment since they claimed his comments could allegedly incite violence against the Minnesota lawmaker.

The hypocrisy of condemning Trump while not holding “The Good Fight” tweet under the fire was not missed by many on Twitter.

Though CBS All Access has not issued a response for the tweet – or why it was deleted – the well-deserved outrage continued on social media.
