A reporter for BuzzFeed News first noticed the retweet.

The tweet has since been deleted, and Conway denied that she sent it in a statement to BuzzFeed

“I’ve never heard of Lib Hypocrisy obviously. I denounce whoever it is. I’m going to find out who’s tweeting it. It will be immediately deleted. Everybody makes mistakes," Conway said.

Conway’s tweet comes amid mounting criticism of her media appearances after she used the phrase “alternative facts” to describe disagreements over the crowd size at President TrumpDonald John TrumpComey: Trump's 'Spygate' claims are made up Trump taps vocal anti-illegal immigration advocate for State Dept's top refugee job Seattle Seahawks player: Trump is 'an idiot' for saying protesting NFL players 'shouldn’t be in the country' MORE’s inauguration.

The Office of Government Ethics on Tuesday recommended that the Trump administration punish Conway over her public endorsement of Ivanka Trump's product line during an appearance on Fox News. "There is strong reason to believe that Ms. Conway has violated the Standards of Conduct Act," the office said in a letter to the White House.

The counselor to the president also referenced the "Bowling Green massacre," a terrorist attack that never happened, in multiple media interviews. Conway has since apologized for the error.
