Kansas State Student Suspended From Twitter Over Joke About George Floyd, Accounts Threatening to Kill Him Remain Active
Conservative Kansas State student Jaden McNeil has been the target of countless death threats and attempts to get him expelled from his college over a joke that he made about George Floyd earlier this week — and now Twitter has suspended his account for it.
McNeil is an America First conservative who has become quite popular for his gaming live-streams on DLive.
In a tweet, he jokingly congratulated George Floyd on “being drug free for an entire month!” A once common quip that has been made in various forms about many drug addicted celebrities who have passed away, notably including Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse.
Both Twitter and Kansas State have now condemned, and arguably helped to incite a mob against McNeil, over a joke, while failing to condemn or take action against actual violent rhetoric directed towards him.
