Girl Scouts Delete Social Media Congratulations to Barrett on Court Seat After Backlash


By Dan Mangan | CNBC • Published 11 mins ago

The Girls Scouts on Wednesday night deleted social media posts congratulating conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett for her controversial appointment to the Supreme Court hours after the posts sparked a wave of angry comments — and some praise.

"Shame on Girl Scouts for promoting this. She represents the exact opposite of what we instill in our girls!" one woman wrote in reply to Girl Scouts’ Facebook post.

The backlash began right after the Girls Scouts Twitter and Facebook feeds featured an image showing photos of Barrett and the only four other women who have served as justices on the high court. Those women included Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the liberal whose death last month opened the door for President Donald Trump to nominate Barrett for her seat.

"Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789," the post said, ending with an emoji of hands raised up.
