A Florida police officer who shot to fame for being one of the 'hot cops' working during Hurricane Irma has been accused of writing anti-Semitic posts on Facebook.

Gainesville police officer Michael Hamill reportedly made offensive jokes about Jews and wrote that 'stupid people' should be put in an oven and dealt with 'the Hitler way', according to screenshots sent to the Gainesville Sun.

In one post dated April 2013, Hamill allegedly wrote: 'Who knew that reading Jewish jokes before I go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me to sleep better as well.'

The post continued: 'Here is one for everybody, 'What's the difference between boy scouts and Jews?' Anybody know? Well it is because 'Boy scouts come back from their camps,' the post continued.

In another screenshot, Hamill ranted against 'stupid people', concluding, 'Put them in an oven and deal with them the Hitler way. Haha.'

Along with two officers Hamill sent social media into meltdown when they shared a photo of them announcing how they were working through the night during the hurricane
