A social media post from The Girl Scouts of America, congratulating Justice Amy Coney Barrett on becoming one of only five women in U.S. history to be appointed to the Supreme Court, was deleted after a liberal backlash.

The Girl Scouts explained they deleted the tweet because it was viewed as a political statement instead of congratulatory.

The statement read:

“Earlier today, we shared a post highlighting the five women who have been appointed to the Supreme Court."

"It was quickly viewed as a political and partisan statement which was not our intent, and we have removed the post."

“Girl Scouts of the USA is a non-political, nonpartisan organization."

"We are neither red nor blue, but Girl Scout GREEN. We are here to lift up girls and women."

The original post by Girl Scouts featured a photo of Barrett and Sandra Day O’Connor and the three sitting female justices on the Supreme Court.

The caption read:

“Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the fifth woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789.”

But the post drew criticism from the left, including from Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), who wrote:

“What kind of patch does one earn for uplifting a woman who is the antithesis of justice.”

“Thank you [Girl Scouts] for deleting your Tweet praising the Amy Comey [sic] Barret, the reason today’s Girl Scouts won’t have access to health care, equal pay or any of the other rights we take for granted. Still skipping your cookies over this shameful decision,” tweeted Brianna Wu, executive director of Rebellion Pac.

Actress Amber Tamblyn also thanked the group for deleting its post.

“Girl Scouts, this tweet is really disappointing and won’t age well when access to safe abortion and the healthcare needs of millions of women and girls is gutted in this country because of Barrett’s addition to the court," Tamblyn said.

But one user pointed out the group's hypocrisy for saying they would not make political statements:

"If you're going to insist you're a non-political organization, then stop pushing the LGBTQ agenda & cut ties with Planned Parenthood."

Another User wrote:

"You spineless weasels. You’re supposed to empower and represent strong women and girls...and you caved into a Twitter mob of perpetually unhappy miserable leftists?"

On Monday, Barrett was confirmed as the ninth justice to the Supreme Court with a vote of 52-48.
