Viewers have slammed CBS show The Good Fight after it's official Twitter account posted a picture with the words 'assassinate', 'President' and '' in succession. 

The network came under fire for the tweet, which showed a screenshot from a March 28 episode showing someone pointing to the list of 'target words'. 

The Good Wife spinoff quickly deleted the picture posted Friday after GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel called it a felony. 

She tweeted: 'Threatening the life of President @realDonaldTrump is not only despicable, it’s a felony. I hope the Secret Service investigates this.'

Other users quickly piled in, saying the post 'advocated the assassination of Donald ' and 'invoked an assassination on our President through the use of subliminal propaganda'. 

One wrote: 'Just stopped watching anything having to do with CBS, and especially, The Good Fight. Inciting political violence? Advocating for the assassination of Donald ? Have you all lost your minds? I'll be contacting your advertisers.'
