Well, that didn’t last long! Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King is already back on Twitter after what appears to have been a half a day deletion of his account.
According to the Daily Wire, the race-hustler claimed he wasn’t throwing a hissy fit over Tesla founder Elon Musk taking over the social media platform, but took his account offline because he was receiving “death threats.”
King, however, hasn’t posted a single screenshot of the alleged death threats.
Jack Posobiec, alt-right political commentator and television correspondent, was quick to call out hissy fit King and accused him of making up the story.
“I didn’t delete my account,” King wrote in a response to conservative Jack Posobiec. “You literally made that up.”
“I was getting death threats and hack attempts from your buddies who stormed the Capitol and had to make it more secure,” King claimed. “I’m right here. And you are a [sic] white supremacist.”
“Receipts are right here Talcum X,” the conservative added, tacking on a screenshot of the offline account.
King on Monday seemed to have deleted the Twitter account, even if temporarily after he accused Musk of buying Twitter to advance “white power.” Many online took a screenshot of the offline Twitter account.
King went on to accuse Musk of advancing white power and that the only reason he bought Twitter was to allow white nationalists to target/harass people.
“At its root, [Elon Musk] wanting to purchase Twitter is not about left vs right,” King accused Musk, hours before the account went offline. “It’s about white power.”
“The man was raised in Apartheid by a white nationalist,” he continued. “He’s upset that Twitter won’t allow white nationalists to target/harass people. That’s his definition of free speech.”
“Elon Musk has openly called himself a ‘free speech absolutist’ and said that he wants to create a space where anything can be said about anyone,” the activist claimed. “That’s why white nationalists are giddy today. Here on Twitter and other platforms that I track daily. It’s dangerous.”
