Hellboy actor Ron Perlman admitted he was suspended by Twitter after he wished death on billionaire Charles Koch after his brother David Koch passed away.
Perlman wished death on Charles Koch following the death of his brother David writing, “Wishing the Koch brothers a speedy reunion.”
Following his 12 hour suspension for the tweet, Perlman took to Twitter to admit he was suspended. He would also claim he was being “silenced for calling out fascism.” He then insinuated the Koch brothers “rape and pillage the very we air breathe.”
Perlman wrote, “Yesterday Twitter slapped me with a 12-hour ban for a tweet referencing the Koch brothers. The day that we are silenced for calling out fascism, for point a finger at those who would rape and pillage the very air we breathe, may God help us!”
