Does this surprise you at all? Think about how differently this would have turned out of Sarah Palin was calling for white men to gang rape a black woman.
Twitter will not suspend Azealia Banks’s account after the rapper tweeted that Sarah Palin should be gang raped because the violent language ‘was not in violation of the Twitter Rules.’
The social media company’s response came after a user submitted a complaint and was first reported by Breitbart.
‘We reviewed the content and determined that it was not in violation of the Twitter Rules,’ the company said in a statement, according to Breitbart.
The content that Twitter approved of included tweets that had Banks calling for Palin to ‘get headf****d by a big, veiny, ashy black d**k’ and for ‘the biggest burliest blackest n*****s’ to ‘run a train on her.’
According to Twitter’s rule book, the company does not ‘tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.’
Violent threats, ‘direct or indirect’ are also forbidden: ‘You may not make threats of violence or promote violence,’ the rules read.
Also, the rules state users ‘may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others.’
