A removal notice just stunned the White House. She is gone now and it was completely unexpected — no one thought this could happen to her. People are shocked.
Candace Owens — a high-profile, African-American support of President Trump — was just suspended by Twitter over her criticism of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s “socialist” response to COVID-19.
While Owens’s tweet is no longer available, Breitbart News captured it. “Apparently [Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer] believes she is a duly elected dictator of a socialist country,” she said.
Owens continued: “The people of Michigan need to stand up to her. Open your businesses. Go to work.” This may have been Twitter’s ‘justification’ for suspending Owens — that she encouraged people to violate orders.
But there’s a problem: Twitter didn’t give a reason for suspending her account. According to Breitbart, she received “a notification from Twitter” about the offending tweet, but a violation wasn’t listed.
It seems possible that someone at Twitter with a political vendetta against Owens got ban-happy and used this situation as an excuse. People should demand that she be reinstated.
