The II Marine Expeditionary Force has walked back a snarky tweet calling Tucker Carlson a “boomer” over the Fox News host’s comments about women serving in the military.

In a since-deleted tweet from the verified account of their Information Group, the II MEF laid into Carlson over a segment from his show last week in which he said efforts by the US military to accommodate service members who are expecting mothers made “a mockery” of what the armed forces stand for.

“What it looks like in today’s armed forces @TuckerCarlson,” the tweet read. “Get right before you get left, boomer”

But after the tweet came under scrutiny, II MEF deleted it and, in a Saturday reply to one critic, vowed to be more judicious about using its social media platform in the future.

“We are human and we messed up,” II MEF wrote. “We intended to speak up for female Marines and it was an effort to support them. They are a crucial part to our corps and we need them to know that. We will adjust fire and ensure the utmost professionalism in our tweets.”

Previously, the Pentagon issued a strongly-worded release pushing back on Carlson’s remarks with the headline, “Press Secretary Smites Fox Host That Dissed Diversity in U.S. Military.”
