"The Daily Show" is facing backlash on social media for a tweet about the Supreme Court's decision on Texas abortion laws.
The show's account tweeted, "Celebrate the #SCOTUS ruling! Go knock someone up in Texas!"
Some users supported the tweet's attempt at humor, but many suggested it was in bad taste.
Within a couple of hours, "The Daily Show" replied with a second tweet explaining they weren't promoting abortions.
"Friends, we’re certainly not promoting abortions," the tweet read. "Just excited about #SCOTUS reaffirming right to choose."
On Monday, the Supreme Court issued its strongest defense of abortion rights in a quarter-century by striking down Texas rules that sharply reduced abortion clinics in the nation's second-most-populous state.
The show did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
