A women who had a ‘F*ck Trump’ sticker on her car has added to her display just days after being arrested.
Karen Forsenca, from Texas, went viral after Fort Bend County Sheriff, Troy Nehls, shared a photo of the back of her pickup truck on his Facebook.
Congratulated by some and criticised by others, it’s safe to say, the Sheriff wasn’t exactly happy with the decal, which read:
F*ck Trump and f*ck you for voting for him.
I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359.
If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you.
Our prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it.
Claiming it violated Texas laws, the Sheriff called out for the world to identify the owner.
Shortly after the post went viral, Forsenca was arrested on fraud charges, which came from an outstanding warrant back in 2014.
Clearly angered at being arrested on a completely unrelated charge, 46-year-old Forsenca claimed this was an abuse of the badge.
After being released on a $1,500 bond, she gave the perfect response to the Sheriff, something she probably felt he had coming.
Next to the Trump sticker, which naturally, hasn’t been removed, is a new message directed at the Sheriff.
F*ck Troy Nehls and f*ck you for voting for him.
Forsenca told KPRC 2:
I think it is crazy how it’s drawing all this attention when it has been up for 11 months. The sticker is getting its point across.
We’d been thinking about it and decided, you know, Troy didn’t think twice when he went ahead and put the Facebook post up and exposed me and my family.
I thought that was crazy. I got calls saying I was being wanted because of my sticker. I feel it is an invasion of privacy.
He has every means, he’s a Sheriff and could have just called me and talked to me about it on a personal level.
What we have on the back of the truck is nothing compared to what you see every day on the TV and in music videos and games.
The viral post, which received more than 10,000 shares within hours of being uploaded, was deleted by Nehls only a day after he made it.
His office issued this statement:
The Sheriff made the post on his personal page. The objective of the post was to find the owner/driver of the truck and have a conversation with them in order to prevent a potential altercation between the truck driver and those offended by the message.
Since the owner of the truck has been identified, the Sheriff took down the post.
Due to the hate messages he’s been receiving towards his wife and children, the Sheriff will not be commenting on the matter further.
Maybe he should think twice next time about starting a strange witch hunt online?
