Axios reported early Thursday morning that former Trump administration Press Secretary Sean Spicer threatened legal action against journalist Mike Allen for texting and emailing him questions. 

Mike Allen, one of the founders of Axios, claimed that Spicer requested he "stop texting/emailing me unsolicited anymore."

Allen reportedly responded with a "?"

"Mike Allen" was trending on Twitter Thursday morning as a result with twitter users posting memes and jokes after the revelation was made public. 

"Not sure what that means," Spicer wrote in response, according to Allen. "From a legal standpoint I want to be clear: Do not email or text me again. Should you do again I will report to the appropriate authorities."

"Please refrain from sending me unsolicited texts and emails. Should you not do so I will contact the appropriate legal authorities to address your harassment," wrote Spicer.
