A Texas Republican is taking heat for referring to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as the "C-word" in a post on Twitter that was quickly removed -- but only after screenshots were already taken.

In a tweet posted Tuesday afternoon, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, a Republican statewide office holder, noted a recent poll showing GOP nominee Donald Trump leading. Miller wrote, "Pennsylvania: New Auto Alliance poll. Trump 44, C**t 43, Go, Trump, go."

While Miller intially claimed he was hacked, he now blames it on a staffer who didn't notice the offensive word..

Nonetheless, Twitter users were quick to call him out.
