Denise McAllister From McCain Wedding Meme Dropped By Conservative Site After Homophobic Twitter Feud

Writer Denise McAllister — who became a viral meme over her heated Twitter exchange with Meghan McCain — was dropped by American conservative publication The Federalist after she tweeted homophobic remarks at a gay journalist over the weekend.

Last Monday, McAllister attacked ABC's The View, a daytime talk show hosted by a panel of women, saying "can someone explain to me the purpose of The View? It seems to me to be a roundtable of delusional mental midgets ricocheting ignorance and lack of emotional regulation," alongside a link to an article titled "Meghan McCain says she's having an 'existential crisis'; admits media will 'get Trump re-elected.'"

McCain, a co-host of the show and daughter of the late Sen. John McCain, fired back at McAllister in reply to McAllister's tweet saying, "You were at my wedding Denise…"

McCain's husband Ben Domenech is the co-founder and publisher of The Federalist.

McAllister responded by clarifying that the tweet wasn't "personally directed" at McCain, adding "my comment was directed at The View and the mental midgets who surround you. I don't even know how you do it daily and my hat is off to you for standing strong in the midst of crazy."

Although McAllister publicly didn't suffer any consequences from that exchange, she landed herself in hot water again almost a week later over another Twitter exchange. On Sunday, Domenech confirmed that the conservative writer, who's a freelancer for the publication, "will not be writing for us at The Federalist any more" after she attacked a gay journalist with a series of homophobic tweets on Saturday.

Speaking to the Washington Post, Domenech confirmed that the feedback from the public over her homophobic tweets influenced his decision. "We have hundreds of freelancers," he said. "She won't be one of them going forward."

McAllister engaged in a Twitter battle on Saturday after she publicly tweeted details of her personal life.

"Trying to talk to my husband while Carolina is playing. He looks at me and says, 'Woman, you know better than this. The game is on.' He's right. I slipped. Commercial comes on. I fetch him a beer. He grabs me. Deep kisses. Patience and timing, ladies. That's the lesson," McAllister wrote, in a since-deleted post that drew widespread criticism.

Journalist Yashar Ali reshared McAllister's tweet shortly after, commenting: "'He's right. I slipped.' Oh Denise."

McAllister responded to Ali by arguing that "a gay man commenting on a heterosexual relationship is just. Sad. Pathetic really." In another tweet, she taunted the journalist, saying, "I think @yashar has a crush on my. Maybe I'm making him doubt his love of penis."

McAllister then escalated her attack on Ali in another post, saying "he doesn't know his purpose as a man… as a human being… so he wallows and tries to find himself in another man's a**hole."

Although most of the tweets have since been deleted, one where McAllister attempts to defend herself remains.

"I stand up for men being free in their masculinity," she tweeted. "Respected for their masculinity. I'm attacked by gay men and their female sidekicks. What do you men think about this? We live in a society that wants to rob men of their manhood. Are you going to sit by and take it? Or fight?"

Finally, on Sunday afternoon, McAllister apologized for her offensive comments. "The tweet in question has been deleted," she wrote. "I apologize to @yashar for responding to a perceived attack on my family in the manner I did and regret any embarrassment I caused @benshapiro and the @realDailyWire as well as @bdomenech and @FDRLST."
