James Woods Put In ‘Twitter Jail.’ Here’s The Viral Tweet That Got Him There

It’s never a surprise when someone lands in FaceBook or Twitter jail, it seems it gets easier and easier to be banned as the platforms have begun censoring more and more of what people are saying. This time Twitter has gone and went after conservative and award winning actor James Woods, whose account has over 2 Million followers. Wood’s girlfriend Sarah Miller confirmed this all to be true in a post she made.

Turns out on April 20, Ms. Miller took a screenshot of the email Woods received from Twitter and she posted it up for all the world to see. She stated:

“Of course Twitter doesn’t inform his followers.” As you can clearly see the email claims Woods was locked out of his account for “violating” Twitter rules “against abusive behavior.” The tweet that has gained all this attention was one that read: “If you try to kill the King, you better not miss. #HangThemAll.”

It is being said that what Woods was talking about was in response to the Mueller report findings exonerating President Donald Trump and his 2016 campaign of collusion with the Russian government. It isn’t even the first time that James Woods has been suspended from Twitter, it’s happened on more than one occasion, maybe he’s starting a new trend.

In fact just this past September the actor was suspended for making a crack about a fake meme, which he acknowledged was likely fake. Woods stated in this occurrence:

“Pretty scary that there is a distinct possibility this could be real. Not likely, but in this day and age of absolute liberal insanity, it is at least possible …” The meme in question suggested that top Democrat organizations encouraged men to skip voting in the midterms to make a woman’s vote worth more. Clearly was supposed to be a joke, but a really bad one at that.

Woods gave a statement to the Associated Pressing stating:

“The irony is, Twitter accused me of affecting the political process, when in fact, their banning of me is the truly egregious interference. Because now, having your voice smothered is much more disturbing than having your vocal cords slit. If you want to kill my free speech, man up and slit my throat with a knife, don’t smother me with a pillow. I wish this were about an unknown Twitter user so that I could be even more passionate about it. This is not about a celebrity being muzzled. This is about an American being silenced, one tweet at a time.”

It seems that platforms such as Twitter and FaceBook are trying to keep free speech to only what they deem to be appropriate, but who knows what really goes on behind the scenes of all these social media sites. One thing we can be sure of though, Mr. Woods is not happy with Twitter and he isn’t taking the banishment lying down.
