Senator Claire McCaskill very much runs her own Twitter account, which is why her feed sometimes has goofy commentary on the fashion of the Supreme Court justices and personal Vine videos of her family coloring Easter eggs.

This Labor Day weekend she fired off a series of tweets about roasting a pig for her son's birthday -- with some close-up before and after pics.

Vegans were not pleased.

And finally the apology / defense of Missourah's pig-eating habits.

Why did she feel the need to apologize? Well, as she has emphasized many times, she has embraced Twitter and tries to read every comment sent her way.

Here's a sampling of the vegan outrage she might have seen, all via her Twitter replies:
