Minnesota Republican Party officials have fired a volunteer social media manager who tweeted the hashtag #NegroProblem from an official Twitter account.

GOP Chairman Keith Downey said a social media moratorium has been imposed on the Seventh Congressional District GOP after its tweet against Minnesota’s Democrats-and-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party was deemed racist.

“My apologies to all for their posts,” Mr. Downey said via Twitter.

The initial tweet came after DFL Senate leaders said they favored adding measures to a special legislative session to reduce high unemployment and poverty rates among black Minnesotans, the Minneapolis Star Tribune‎ reported.
