Many celebrities and athletes have taken to social media following the shooting of several cops, and death of five, in Dallas on Thursday.

Here in Milwaukee, Bucks forward Jabari Parker is defending President Barack Obama after former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh tweeted what some may see as a threat.

On July 7, Walsh -- now a radio talk show host -- tweeted, "3 Dallas Cops killed, 7 wounded. This is now war. Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks. Real America is coming after you."

It has since been deleted.

Parker responded saying:

Walsh responded the onslaught of criticism saying:

Parker followed saying he is a man of God and has faith in peace.

Parker has been very active on social media following the police shootings this week, even questioning his own safety.
