Former tennis star Martina Navratilova was slammed after a disrespectful attack on a World War II veteran highlighted by U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell.

The ambassador fired back at the 62-year-old tennis legend, advising her to “seek help” after she turned a touching moment he shared with the 95-year-old veteran into an opportunity to attack President Trump.

Grenell and his longtime partner Matt Lashey were in Normandy over the weekend and the emotional moment was captured in photos he shared on Twitter. Grenell noted that the hero grandfather recounted his experiences as he returned to where he fought the Nazis as a 19-year-old soldier in World War II.

And while many poured out emotional sentiments on Twitter in response, thanking the veteran for his service and Grenell for being there, Navratilova immediately reacted with a left-wing rant against the ambassador.

“You tweet this while our troops are under fire thanks to your guy Trump? Have you any idea about what is going on in Syria now? #crickets,” she tweeted.

But Grenell fired back at her insensitive need to “ridicule” the moment.

The unhinged liberal fired off another round, however, accusing Grenell of being “ok with the slaughter of civilians in Syria.”

Another Twitter user interjected to call out the “deranged lunatic” and tell her to stop “politicizing” veterans.

But the former professional tennis player had plenty of vitriol to go around and slammed this critic’s remarks as well.

Grenell eventually gave Navratilova a brutal reality check that seemed to end the tirade.

Conservative commentator and columnist Tammy Bruce joined in, calling out Navratilova who “has been on a mission to repair her image.”

Navratilova also took a shot at the “trolls” who were calling her out.

Fortunately for the World War II veteran at the center of the battle of words on Twitter, the rest of the comments were grateful for his service and slammed the tennis star for her disrespect.
