Bristol Palin accuses Twitter of reverse racism for not deleting Azealia Banks' account over remarks she made about her mother.
As I mentioned earlier Sarah Palin apparently made a call on the batphone and forced Bristol Palin/Nancy French to jump in and defend her over the Azealia Banks comments.
Of course they wanted Banks to be kicked off Twitter and possibly run out of the country, but as it turned out nothing really happened because everybody hates the Palins and, you know, free speech and all.
Well if you thought that was going to be the end of it, you my friend do NOT know the Palins.
So Bristol, or perhaps a Bristol impersonator, went to Fox News:
“Twitter’s own words -- 'We believe that protection from abuse and harassment is a vital part of empowering people to freely express themselves on Twitter’,” Bristol told FOX411, quoting the social media site’s policy “I cannot imagine what they would have done if races were reversed. It's unfortunate that Twitter is not truly colorblind in this situation with regards to Miss Banks and her threats.”
"Twitter is not truly colorblind?" Does that mean that Bristol thinks that Banks did not lose her account because she is black? Because that is a pretty fucked up thing to suggest.
This was followed up with comments from "a source close to the Palins," who I would bet my house is Nancy French:
“What is most disturbing is Twitter's failure to act when Miss Banks actively supported and encouraged her fans to seek out the Palin's personal home address, break in and inflict harm on the Palin family. Especially when it’s now been proven that Twitter was alerted to these threats on their platform and the lengthy history of deranged stalkers with violent intentions who have broken into the Palin family's properties and been arrested, charged and convicted by local and federal authorities. This is not a laughing matter and far crosses the line of freedom of speech.”
Yeah it's sort of reminiscent of when Palin supporters threatened to "shoot" me "on the playground in front of the children" or when they harassed the family of Joe McGinniss so aggressively that his wife and children had to change their e-mail addresses.
Oh wait, that was actually worse.
Of course while I would not defend the remarks made by Azealia Banks, many of the things said, or insinuated, by Sarah Palin have been much worse.
And let's face it when it comes to deranged, psychotic, and potentially dangerous fans Azealia Banks has nothing on Sarah Palin.
Which I have little doubt we will see for ourselves about an hour after this post gets published.
