A Twitter thread comprising entirely of white people “getting their ass beat for black history month” has received over 335,000 likes on Twitter despite being a clear violation of Twitter rules.
The thread features white people being violently attacked. In some cases, the confrontations are provoked by allegations of racism but other examples just appear to be random fights.
The user who posted the thread – @nomjinni – locked down their account shortly before this article was published meaning the thread is no longer visible.
Twitter has failed to remove the thread or take any action against the user who posted it despite it being a clear violation of their own ‘Glorification of violence policy’ which states, “We also prohibit the glorification of violence. Glorifying violent acts could inspire others to take part in similar acts of violence.”
The rule also specifies that glorification of violence against a specific race is prohibited, but the thread remains up.
Videos glorifying and encouraging violence will be quickly removed by Twitter…unless they’re of bIack people assaulting white people. Then they’ll get hundreds of thousands of likes celebrating it.
