Iranian supreme leader zyatollah Ali Khamenei made it clear Sunday that Israel can’t sit with him.

The ruler wrote a tweet calling Israel a “malignant cancerous tumor in the West Asian region that has to be removed and eradicated.”

Feeling personally victimized, the Israeli embassy in Washington, D.C. clapped back on Monday, replying with a GIF from the movie Mean Girls.

The response tweet received thousands of likes; the embassy can’t help that it’s so popular.
