Twitter Takes Action Against Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Offensive Nashville Tweet!

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, tweeted a picture about a “Trans Day of Vengeance” after the school shooting in Nashville. This caused Twitter to temporarily shut down her account.

Greene shared a screenshot of the notice on her account on Tuesday. The notice said that some of the features on her congressional account were temporarily disabled because they broke Twitter’s rules.

“My Congressional account was suspended for 7 days because I revealed that Antifa was planning a call to violence called “Trans Day of Vengeance.” This was the day after a trans shooter killed a bunch of kids in a school,” she tweeted.

Greene’s tweet seemed to be about a protest that was going to happen in front of the Supreme Court on Saturday.

The Trans Radical Activist Network, Our Rights DC, and other groups are putting on the event to protest the violence and laws against transgender people that still exist in the U.S.

The groups said that the event “is about unity, not inciting violence.” They also said that violence isn’t welcome or encouraged at the event.

The groups also said they were “horrified” and “outraged” by the shooting at The Covenant School, but they said there was “no connection” between that and their protest.

“Vengeance means fighting back with force,” the groups said in a joint statement. “We are fighting against false narratives, criminalization, and eradication of our existence.” “It’s also a call to our allies to stand up and fight with us against the forces that want to split us up and put us all under their control.”

Ella Irwin, who is in charge of Twitter’s trust and safety, said that the platform had to be “swept” to get rid of more than 5,000 tweets and retweets of the image.

“We don’t support tweets that call for violence, no matter who sends them,” Irwin wrote on Twitter.

Irwin said, “‘Vengeance’ does not mean peaceful protest. It is fine to plan or support peaceful protests.”

“Yesterday, a lot of people on our platform reported the graphic,” Irwin said. “I’m sure the tragic events in Nashville made people more sensitive to the language at that time.” “We always look at the tweets that are causing a sudden rise in complaints from users.”

Monday, there was a shooting at a school in Nashville that killed six people, three of whom were nine years old.

Police killed the shooter, Audrey Hale, during the attack. Police found out that she was a woman who had used male pronouns on social media. But the police have not said that the shooter’s gender identity has anything to do with why they did what they did.

Greene has been a vocal opponent of transgender rights, and last year he backed a plan to make it illegal for minors to get the care that fits their gender identity.

Twitter has already banned Greene for tweets about vaccines that broke its COVID-19 policy against spreading false information and for making false claims about election fraud.
