Donald Trump Jr. complained in a bizarre rant that his dad got banned from Twitter even though he hasn’t been “killing homosexuals.”

“So the ayatollah, and numerous other dictatorial regimes can have Twitter accounts with no issue despite threatening genocide to entire countries and killing homosexuals etc… but The President of the United States should be permanently suspended,” Trump Jr. tweeted. “Mao would be proud.”

Donald Trump Sr. has spent years stirring up his loyal supporters and behaving in a manner that would have gotten most other people banned from Twitter. Since he lost the 2020 elections, he has been egging conservatives on, and he continued even after the MAGA riots where Trump supporters stormed the Capitol with explosives and weapons in an alleged attempt to kill Mike Pence and members of Congress.

This past Friday, Trump Sr. tweeted a message that said the “great American Patriots who voted for me… will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!” In another tweet, he said he would not attend Joe Biden’s inauguration.

And that was the last straw for Twitter, which said in a statement that they “have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence” and also said that Trump’s tweets, in context, appear to spread the debunked conspiracy theory that the 2020 elections were stolen.

“In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action,” the social media company said.

Trump’s supporters are mad and crying censorship, even though many people have gotten kicked off Twitter for much less than promoting an attempted coup that left five people dead.

Trump Jr. is his father’s biggest supporter, so he wrote an angry tweet that somehow made this all about gay people… er, “homosexuals.”

LGBTQ people and Democrats had some great responses.
