Twitter Slams The Office‘s Jenna Fischer For Inaccurate Tweet About GOP Tax Bill


Pam from The Office has been getting flack on Twitter for an inaccurate tweet she made over the weekend.

On Saturday, actress Jenna Fischer weighed in on recently passed GOP tax bill, putting a focus on teachers who supposedly can “no longer deduct the cost of their classroom supplies on their taxes.”

Fact check: The $250 school supplies deduction was actually kept in the bill.

And several conservatives and reporters on Twitter took issue with her “factually wrong” tweet.

On Christmas Day, Fischer followed up by saying she “had some facts wrong.”

It’s worth noting that her initial tweet had over 65,000 retweets and over 219,000 likes. Her correction has only roughly 450 retweets and roughly 4,000 likes.
