Patricia Heaton is feeling the heat.

After radio host Rush Limbaugh got himself into hot water over calling Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" during a heated discussion concerning public birth control February 27, Heaton became one of his biggest supporters.

The actress, who's famous for her lead roles in The Middle and Everybody Loves Raymond, sent out several negative tweets toward Fluke, via her verified Twitter account to her 68,000+ followers. And after receiving a not-so-positive response to her banter, she sent out an apology.

"Mea culpa Sandra Fluke! Wasn't being respectful 2 u re my tweets as I hope people wd b w/me. Don't like you being dissed -so sorry," Heaton, 54, tweeted Monday.

Below are the tweets that Heaton, who is mom to four sons between the ages of 18 and 13, sent out to Fluke's own Twitter account Feb. 29.

"Hey G-Town Gal: Plz let us also pay for your Starbucks, movie theater tickets and your favorite hot wings combo deal at KFC! Anything else?"

"Hey G-Town Gal: If your parents have to pay for your birth control, maybe they should get a say in who you sleep with! Instant birth control!"

"If every Tweaton sent Georgetown Gal one condom, her parents wouldn't have to cancel basic cable, & she would never reproduce — sound good?"
