House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is inciting violence.

In a tweet on Sunday, McCarthy warned if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) does not act against “this dangerous rhetoric,” then he will.

This came as Waters is taking heat for telling BLM protesters to be “more confrontational” if Derek Chauvin is acquitted.

WASHINGTON - AUGUST 13:  Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) holds a news conference to challenge the charges made against her by the House of Representatives ethics committee at the U.S. Capitol August 13, 2010 in Washington, DC. The House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct said it found sufficient evidence that Waters' chief of staff, her grandson Mikael Moore, granted "special favors" to a struggling Massachusetts-based bank in which her husband owned stock. Waters has requested that a public trial by an ethics committee panel take place before the November election.  (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
