Twitter has allowed public calls to hang Vice President Mike Pence to trend just hours after banning President Trump from its platform for “inciting violence.”
The phrase “Hang Pence” had garnered nearly 86,000 tweets as of Saturday afternoon.
The trend is especially notable given Twitter had permanently suspended Trump from its platform to prevent “further incitement of violence.”
This clear hypocrisy by Twitter was so staggering even HuffPost contributor Yashar Ali criticized the trend.
“WTF why is this allowed to trend? I get that people have been tweeting it to quote some of the insurrectionists but it shouldn’t be allowed to trend,” he tweeted Saturday.
Twitter has since stated that it removed the violent phrase from its trending column.
“We blocked the phrase and other variations of it from trending. We want trends to promote healthy discussions on Twitter,” a company spokesperson told The Post. “There are Rules for trends — if we identify accounts that violate these rules, we’ll take enforcement action.”
