A Florida police officer who skyrocketed to internet fame this week for being one of the “hot cops” working during Hurricane Irma has been accused of writing anti-Semitic Facebook posts.
Gainesville Police Officer Michael Hamill reportedly made offensive jokes about Jews and wrote that “stupid people” should be put in an oven and dealt with “the Hitler way”, according to screenshots sent to the Gainesville Sun.
In one post dated April 2013, Hamill allegedly wrote, “Who knew that reading jewish jokes before I go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me to sleep better as well.”
Hamill, along with two other officers, sent social media into a meltdown after the police department shared a photo of them on Facebook announcing they were working through the night during the hurricane.
The post went viral, racking up more than 294,000 shares as social media users fawned over their looks.
Hamill joined the Gainesville Police Department in 2016.
