More Republicans and their offspring showing their true colors — Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake’s teenage son Tanner Flake, took to Twitter to hurl anti-Semitic and homophobic slurs at someone he accused of stealing  his bicycle. Tanner Flake also went by the name ‘n1ggerkiller’ in an online game.

Sen. Jeff Flake’s high school-aged son Tanner used twitter to threaten the “faggot” who stole his bike that he “will find you, and … will beat the crap out of you,” joked about an acquaintance stealing one-liners because he’s Jewish, and went by the name “n1ggerkiller” in an online game.

“I’m very disappointed in my teenage son’s words, and I sincerely apologize for the insensitivity. This language is unacceptable, anywhere. Needless to say, I’ve already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well,” Sen. Flake said in a statement to BuzzFeed.

Although Tanner has since locked his twitter account, a series of tweets from January and February show the Arizona Republican’s son repeatedly using the slurs.

Additionally, Flake posted screenshots of scores from games on “Fun Run,” a social gaming app. The screen shots show that Flake goes by the name of “n1ggerkiller.”
