President Biden’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) suggested that Americans report their current and former partners’ alleged “illegal gun activity” to the agency as a “fun” Valentine’s Day activity.
The ATF posted the tweet Monday morning as Americans began their celebration of the day of love.
“Valentine’s Day can still be fun even if you broke up,” the agency wrote on Twitter. “Do you have information about a former (or current) partner involved in illegal gun activity?”
“Let us know, and we will make sure it’s a Valentine’s Day to remember!” the tweet continued. “Call 1-888-ATF-TIPS or email ATFTips@atf.gov.”
The ATF did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s questions and request for comment about the tweet.
While the tweet appears to have been an attempt at humor, critics worried that the ATF’s invitation could lead to jilted exes and significant others frivolously reporting their partners to the agency.
Twitter users quickly dogpiled on the ATF over the tweet.
