Lichfield MP Michael Fabricant has come under fire after posting an offensive tweet about London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
The social media post, which has since been deleted, depicted Mr Khan’s head on an inflatable pig engaged in a sex act with another inflatable pig in front of an image of Donald Trump.
Above the picture, the tweet said: “Breaking News: Trump defeats Sadiq Khan in balloon wars.”
Mr Fabricant told one Twitter user he had removed the image after realising it featured the London Mayor.
He said: “I deleted it as soon as I saw Sadiq Khan’s face on the picture.
“I did not see it was him.
“He may be a useless Mayor, but he’s a nice guy whom I worked with when he was in Parliament.”
However, Mr Fabricant has been criticised for the post with Labour MP Afzal Khan branding it “abhorrent”.
“Michael Fabricant must be suspended immediately,” he said.
It’s not the first time Mr Fabricant has faced criticism of his social media posts.
In May, he came under fire for branding a teenage Burntwood resident “a complete twat”, later saying he had not realised the offensive nature of the term.
And in 2014 he apologised after suggesting he would end up punching a female journalist in the throat if he appeared on TV with her – a comment the Conservatives said was “completely unacceptable”.
The Lichfield MP has been approached for comment over his latest twitter controversy.
