A sheriff's Facebook post and a truck's bumper sticker are stirring up controversy on the internet.

Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls took to Facebook threatening the owner of a truck displaying a sticker reading, "F*** TRUMP AND F*** YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM."

Nehl's post read, "I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359. If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you. Our Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it."

The post has since been deleted.

Some commenting on the Facebook post supported the sheriff's message, and others defended free speech.

According to KPRC in Houston, the owners of the truck don't plan on taking the sticker down.
