The "Drag Queen Story Hour U.K." Twitter account recently posted a tweet that many users deemed pedophilic. The group subsequently deleted the tweet and locked their account after pushback.

Drag Queen Story Hour is a group that organizes events at public libraries in which adult men dressed as women "drag queens" read stories to small children.

The controversial tweet read "Love has no age!" which many Twitter users noted is similar to sentiments expressed by pedophiles who maintain that their sexual attraction to children is not immoral and identify themselves as "MAPs" or "minor-attracted persons."

Drag Queen Story Hour has been controversial in the U.S. and U.K. since its recent inception, especially after at least two participants were discovered to be child sex offenders.

The Drag Queen Story Hour U.K. Twitter account is still locked as private at publishing time.
