(Henderson, NV)  —  Congressman Joe Heck is apologizing for rants his teenage son made on Twitter.

Buzzfeed.com says Joey Heck used online slurs against gays, women and President Obama between August 2012 and last month.

Joey Heck, who attends Henderson’s Coronado High, tweeted his mustache made him look like a “dirty Mexican,” and that Obama was good at  “spear chucking and rocking skipping.”

He also praised former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for making the Democrat “his slave” during a 2012 debate.

The congressman called the remarks “offensive and inappropriate.”
