Twitter takes down Sam George’s anti-LGBTQ+ Tweet

Sam George

Social media network, Twitter, has taken down anti-LGBTQ+ Tweet by Member of Parliament for Ningo – Prampram, Sam George.

The deletion comes following Sam George’s post on Twitter, expressing his joy over the support he received on the platform following the release of the draft of the LGBTQ+ Bill.

“I have been overwhelmed by the massive support even here on a very ‘liberal’ platform like Twitter for our Bill on the LGBTQI+ menace. Homosexuality is NOT a human right. It is a sexual preference. Preferences are not absolute or unregulated. We SHALL pass this Bill through,” he tweeted on July 23, 2021. 

Twitter, an all inclusive platform, and an important platform for the LGBTQ+ community, received a report from a user who wanted Sam George’s tweet removed.

Sam George shared the email he had received from Twitter, stating;

“So they want us to accept their perversion but cannot accept our opinion of their perversion.”

He however, shared that Twitter was not going to take down the post as it had not violated any of their community rules.

“Thankfully the folks at Twitter apply some common sense and logic,” he added. 

 

Although, Twitter’s email indicated that the post will not be removed, checks on Sam Goerge’s Twitter page indicate that the Tweet has indeed been removed.
