The conservative activist, who has been accused of anti-semitism, seems to have drawn the attention of Twitter after calling for an armed insurrection at colleges this week over being booed during a visit to Ohio University.

And just like that, #POOPINGFORKAITLIN was born. The hasthag quickly went viral and became a top trend on Twitter.

Amazingly, the hashtag wasn’t the only drama facing Bennett. The gun girl also found herself embroiled in a Twitter beef with Kaylen Ward, known online as the “naked philanthropist.”

Ward recently garnered worldwide attention for raising $1 million for the Australia wildfires by offering free nude photos to anyone who would donate to the cause.

On Tuesday, Ward offered the same reward in a now-deleted tweet to anyone willing to both block and report Bennett. The gun girl responded to Ward by calling her a “whore.”

“You should start a campaign to get yourself some clothes and therapy, whore,” Bennett tweeted.
