Tom Arnold shared Hope Hicks' personal cell phone number on Twitter just hours after news broke that she had tested positive for coronavirus. 

Hicks, who is a counselor to President Donald Trump, tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday, October 1, as per an administration official. She had traveled along with POTUS several times within the last couple of days, Fox News reported. 

Arnold, who has since deleted his tweet, had offered fans a chance to speak with Hicks directly. The actor had written, "Silent thoughts & prayers aren't enough for national treasure Hope Hicks. She needs to hear them." Arnold then shared a phone number which he claimed to be "her personal cell".

Arnold has been a very vocal critic of the Trump administration as well as the POTUS himself. Back in June, he had asked for "liberal men" to exercise their Second Amendment rights on unmarked law enforcement in Washington DC.

He had taken to Twitter to encourage people to get violent while protesting police brutality in light of the death of 46-year-old George Floyd. Floyd died on May 25 in police custody in Minneapolis after a now-former police officer, Derek Chauvin, had knelt on his neck for nearly 9 minutes. 

As a response to reports that Trump had dispatched additional federal law enforcement in riot gear without visible badges or name identification. He had taken to Twitter to share this: "2nd Amendment is for everyone including black men with long guns but it's f---ing time for us white liberal men to stand up for our brothers & sisters. Borrow our dad's hunting rifles & go nose to nose with Trump’s gang of misfit tools. Let's do it."

The tweet was a response to a video that showed people in riot gear forming a blockade in the nation's capital.
