Actor Rob Lowe is catching major heat on social media, after tweeting about last Friday’s terror attacks in Paris, which over 125 Paris citizens dead.

He then called out French President Francois Hollande for closing the country’s borders: “Oh, NOW France closes its borders. #Hollande” Next, he criticized Hollande’s speech about the tragedy, calling it “either the worst translation of an important speech ever, or one of the worst ever given.”. The backlash came quickly and strong, with one Twitter user proclaiming the actor “a piece of lowlife scum.”
“Rob Lowe is quite honestly a piece of lowlife scum and if you haven;t seen his tweet please dont search for it its atrocious and upsetting,” the twitter user wrote.
