Women’s March, a radical feminist group, has apologized for using $14.92 in an email because of the connection with Christopher Columbus and “colonization.”

In a tweet Tuesday, the U.S. group said, “We apologize deeply for the email that was sent today. $14.92 was our average donation amount this week. It was an oversight on our part to not make the connection to a year of colonization, conquest, and genocide for Indigenous people, especially before Thanksgiving.”

But the group, which emerged in 2017 to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump, was widely mocked on Twitter for linking the figure to the date Columbus reached America.

Several people, including Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer, suggested the figure should be $17.76 — the date of the American Declaration of Independence.

“Let’s all chip in and and raise the amount to $17.76. Then they’ll really lose their minds,” tweeted Fleischer.
