Keri Hilson Questions Trump Twitter Ban


Over the weekend Donald Trump was suspended from Twitter and most major social media platforms after encouraging his followers to overthrow the government by repeatedly claiming that the 2020 presidential election was rigged after he lost to Joe Biden [click here if you missed that]. 

Recording artist Keri Hilson believes Trump's First Amendment rights are being violated...

In a message posted on Instagram Keri told her 2.4 million followers that Trump's Twitter ban was a slippery slope to the erosion of his First Amendment right to Freedom of Speech. 


Keri later clarified her stance to assure her fans that she was not defending Donald Trump. 



Can someone please explain to Keri Hilson that while she may have a point about censorship Twitter is a private company who's terms and conditions Donald Trump, and everyone else, agreed to when they signed up and that Donald Trump has the entire White House press room at his disposal to say whatever he likes whenever he wants. The First Amendment only refers to congress making laws against free speech, not your right to a social media account provided by a private entity.

"Free speech" means you can freely criticize the government without the feds showing up at your home to imprison you. You can absolutely say what you want, that doesn't mean there aren't consequences. Reminds me of a former friend that tried to argue that sending women unsolicited d*ck pics is protected by free speech. I swear I get sick of these attorneys with their degrees from Google University trying to interpret what the laws are supposed to mean. And Snitch, you're absolutely right, Twitter is a private company, which means the government can't tell them what to say and do, but even that has a limit.

Keri needs to worry about her non-existent career instead of discussing politics. Hun, you are way out of your league. Beyonce confuses you lol...Congress may as well be Chinese trigonometry

Keri stick to looking pretty and taking pics. Commenting on important matters is not your specialitay. We see how easy it was to fuck you out your career. Let Donald do him he will ride these 9 days out without a cosignature from you.

And there you have it case closed.

She better sit her fragile a$$ down some where and right a song or two. "I'm a Dum Dum" may be her next hit song.

Besides private companies andplatforms not having to abide by free speech, there is the Clear and Present Danger ruling that determines that if speech or expression that causes public harm than first amendment rights become null and void. I'm tired of these arm chair philosophers and jurists talking nonsense. Keri needs to go back to things she has talent in like making popsicle deep-throat videos, that's what she's good at I guess.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. She looks washed out with thin limp hair.

That never happened.

There's a difference between protesting for freedom and rioting for oppression. If you need an example just turn on CNN. Protesters never broke into a state capitol building and desecrated the offices of elected officials. BLM have never carried tactical gear with guns, bombs, and zip ties while threatening elected officials with nooses. This was an insurrection orchestrated by DOMESTIC TERRORIST. There must be justice. And thankfully there will ✊🏾

Provide evidence that those individuals were part of the peaceful BLM demonstrations, that i may add took part all around the world in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Your fascist brethren goose-stepped their way to the capitol attempting to overthrow democracy and are said to be planning more terror in the coming days on behalf of your crackpot messiah who hid indoors after instigating it and watched it on TV rather than join you rabid bandits.

Keri, just stop trying to be different. You can't be delicate looking and have strong views. It don't work that way, you have to be ugly and injured looking to take on mad views of opinions.

That is the most ignorant, sexist comment! Dumb ass bastard. So a woman can't be beautiful, smart, and opinionated? So because you were raised by an ugly, bitter bitch doesn't mean all pretty women should keep their mouths closed. You sound like a sexist ass hotep beta male or an ugly ass rejected female.

This chic has crucified her career when she came for Beyonce and now she is again defending Trump? A PUBLICIST or somebody needs to tell her to shut the fuck up and just let it go...

There are so many different opinions about a person like Trump, and each of them deserves attention. I would like to recommend the article https://www.atchuup.com/rebecca-ferguson-snubs-trump-inauguration/ which discusses an interesting topic about inauguration. You may remember the scandal that unfolded over the fact that the singer was asked to speak at the inauguration of the president, but she tweeted that she would only sing if she could sing the classic Billie Holiday song "Strange Fruit".
