PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza has apologized to Cranston Mayor Allan Fung for a tweet sent by a city employee.

Elorza, a Democrat, said Thursday he also told Fung, a Republican, that Kevin Aherne no longer works for the city.

Aherne, a communications director in the planning department, deleted his Twitter account.

Aherne confirmed to WPRI-TV he was resigning over the tweet, but declined to discuss it further.

Screenshots posted on Twitter, including one by Fung , show a Tuesday tweet in which Aherne accuses Fung and Cranston police of criminalizing poverty, adding a crude play on words with Fung’s name.

The tweet includes a photo of an officer apparently speaking to panhandlers. Aherne mistook a Warwick cruiser for Cranston.

Fung tweeted to Elorza that it’s not a Cranston cruiser, and #HeardBetterSlamsFromA5thGrader.
