Agent Poso creator and Human Events Daily host Jack Posobiec has reportedly been locked out of his Twitter account over a tweet in which he promoted the sale of merchandise made in protest of Disney’s recent vow to overturn Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law featuring the slogan ‘Boycott Groomers’ illustrated in the style of the company’s traditional castle logo.
Shared by Posobiec to his personal Twitter account on April 6th, the offending tweet featured a pair of links to the Bring Ammo clothing company’s recently launched ‘Boycott Groomers’ t-shirt and sticker, respectively, alongside his playful encouragement, “Get it before it’s banned”.
However, on April 10th, after an uncharacteristic period of Twitter silence from Posobiec, the reporter revealed via his telegram account that he had received “a 12 hour lockout on Twitter for calling Disney groomers!”
“I stand by everything I said about Disney,” he added in a follow-up post.
According to a screenshot shared by Posobiec, the tweet apparently ran afoul of Twitter’s “rules against hateful conduct,” which state, “You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affirmation, age, disability, or serious disease.”
As of writing, Twitter has not specified which category they believe Posobiec directed hate towards.
Commenting on the situation to The Post Millenial, Posobiec referenced Twitter’s new majority shareholder, telling the outlet, “Elon Musk recently commented that corporations dictate policy on Twitter through ad dollars, so it comes as no surprise Twitter will censor you for criticizing one of the largest media companies in the world.”
“This is clear retaliation for me leaking the internal employee forums at Disney showing many of their workers support the Florida anti-grooming bill,” he added.
As noted above, Bring Ammo’s ‘Boycott Groomers’ merch line was created in protest of Disney’s vow to repeal Florida’s recently officiated Parental Rights in Education act.
Signing the act on March 28th, Governor Ron DeSantis explained that the new state law “ensures parents can send their kids to kindergarten without gender ideology being injected into instruction and they will be notified and have the right to decline healthcare services offered at schools.”
“The bill takes three main steps,” he elaborated. “First, the bill prohibits classroom instruction about sexuality or things like transgender in K-3 classrooms. And after third grade those curriculums need to be age appropriate.”
“Second, the bill ensures that at the beginning of every school year parents will be notified about healthcare services offered at the school with the right to decline any service offered,” he continued. “And finally, this bill ensures that whenever a questionnaire or health screening is given to our young students, parents receive it first and give permission for the school to give it to their child.”
In response to the law’s passing, Disney issued a statement via Twitter that same day declaring, “Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law.”
“Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that,” the company continued. “We are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country.”
As of writing, Posobiec remains locked out of his account.
