The internet reacting to Senator John McCain asking for more Twitter followers.

FOX's Krystin Goodwin explains:

On Monday Arizona Senator John McCain took to Twitter to ask followers for help posting:

It backfired. Critics and Democrats used the Republican Senator's plea to take aim at him for supporting the GOP tax bill. They began using the hashtag '#UnfollowMcCain, claiming the bill mainly benefits large corporations and the wealthy.

One tweeting: "Since you chose to care about only yourself and wealthy friends I chose to unfollow."

Following his post, Senator McCain lost close to 20,000 Twitter followers.
