Twitter rules only apply to some people

Here’s a tweet actress Leslie Jones sent instructing her followers to contact another Twitter user whitebecky1776, about a reportidly hateful tweet whitebecky1776 sent to Leslie Jones. She actually instructs her followers to “Get her!!”

By telling her followers to “Get her!!”, Leslie Jones is inciting her followers to harass whitebecky1776. This is a forbidden under Twitter’s rules:

It’s important to note that one of the reasons alluded to for banning Milo Yiannopoulos for life was that he was responsible for his followers sending Leslie Jones mean, racist tweets. There’s been no proof to substantiate this. Milo Yiannopoulos never encouraged his followers to get Leslie Jones like she did with her followers to get this whitebecky1776 person.

Milo Yiannopoulos was banned for life from Twitter while Leslie Jones is still trucking along.

Milo Yiannopoulos is a conservative blogger and a self-described provocateur. He’s also kind of a dick. He’s a hard person to defend. Leslie Jones is a very funny Saturday Night Live actress and is appearing in a major motion picture financed by Columbia Pictures. Milo Yiannopoulos wrote a scathing review of that movie and was highly critical of Leslie Jones’ performance. Leslie Jones has some powerful people in her corner. Milo Yiannopoulos has GamerGate and Breitbart. Considering these facts, I guess it should be no huge surprise that Milo Yiannopoulos was banned from Twitter, while Leslie Jones’ victimhood is being celebrated.

That doesn’t make it right.
