Waka Flocka Experiences Some Heat Like Keri Hilson
First, Hilson starts the tirade: “This may be funny,” she said. “But it’s a little dangerous too. Take Trump out of it for a moment … a democracy must include freedom of speech. Imagine other leaders or popular figures not being able to voice their opinion if it opposes the majority of the world leaders. Slowly but surely (censorship).”
According to Hilson, “If the leaders of the ‘free world’ can be removed, imagine that same right of civilians. Imagine believing every time you read ‘false information detected’ and propaganda, deceptive reports and flat out lies being the only thing we see.”
Black Twitter Erupted after Flocka’s Tweet
The rapper simply wrote, “Someone’s smart” — and that was all it took.
A few fans responded. One notable commenter explained, “The problem I have with people like Keri Energy Hilson & Waka Bus Stop Flocka is their attempt to create a think piece on the THREAT against the freedom of speech based on the removal of Trump’s Twitter account, lacks actual thought behind it.”
Twitter Policy Refresher
For those who may not know Twitter’s Hateful Policy, it states that “You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.”
In fact, the publication of Trump’s hateful rhetoric caused social media platforms including Twitter to temporarily suspend the 45th president’s accounts. Twitter led the charge of social media’s banning spree. Since Twitter’s ban, Trump can no longer post on other social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and Reddit.
Americans must wait to see what other punishments Trump will face. On the other hand, they will be the judges of the list of celebrities and regular Americans to cancel next.
