Actor John Cusack is in hot water after sharing an intensely anti-semitic message on his Twitter account on Monday. The noted Anti-Trump Cusack responded to the uproar by blaming “a bot” for the action. As Breitbart reports:

Hollywood actor and left-wing activist John Cusack claims a “bot” is to blame for sharing an anti-Semitic meme on Twitter Monday.

New York Magazine contributor Yashar Ali shared a screenshot to Twitter of Cusack writing “follow the money” in response to a cartoon of a large hand with a blue Star of David weighing down on a group of people. To the left of the hand is a Voltaire quote, which reads, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

The Being John Malkovich actor soon after deleted the tweet and alleged he meant to “endorse” a tweet sympathetic to “Palestinian justice.”

“A bot got me,” he wrote, attempt to excuse sharing the anti-semitic cartoon. “I thought I was endorsing a pro-Palestinian justice retweet – of an earlier post – it came I think from a different source.”

It appears that Cusack’s critics weren’t buying the actor’s excuse, however.
