Another added: & # 39; Can you imagine this being said about ANOTHER PRESIDENT? ALL hell would break out. Get it out of the air. I'm glad I don't see CBS anyway. & # 39;

The post had read: & # 39; Hmmm … some of those target words look a bit familiar. Did you catch Easter eggs from The One Where Diane Joins The Resistance in this scene? & # 39;

A spokesperson for CBS All Access called the post & # 39; deplorable & # 39; in a statement Monday.

They said: & # 39; A social media message for The Good Fight shows content that, apart from being presented outside the context of the show, created an impression and triggered a response that was not intended. & # 39;

In the episode, The One Where Diane Joins The Resistance, the National Security Agency had used the list to track threats. The image was originally only on the screen for a few seconds.

Christine Baranski & # 39; s character Diane Lockhart joins a group of women trying to drag President Trump's approval ratings, but the words they use are marked by the NSA as & # 39; target words & # 39 ;.

But the still image was posted without context, which led to calls for a boycott of CBS from some.

The tweet had asked viewers if they could recognize an Easter egg, Deadline reports.

Users quickly stepped in, saying the post was in favor of the murder of Donald Trump & # 39; and & # 39; had invoked a murder of our president through the use of subliminal propaganda & # 39;

A spokesperson from CBS added: & # 39; The tweet showed a screen from the fictional NSA office of the show, including a list of standalone & # 39; target words that the NSA characters from the series had to pay attention to when performing anonymous wire cranes in an attempt to reach the president and the public.

& # 39; Unfortunately, the tweet was placed without that context, trying to get fans to search for a & # 39; Easter Egg & # 39; indication, referring to an old character from & # 39; The Good Wife & # 39 ;, Kalinda, mentioned in the second column of the list and the fact that the NSA still follows her in the fictional world of the show.

& # 39; The post was perceived very differently from the intended result and has since been deleted. & # 39;
