On Monday, sports columnist Jason Whitlock, who was banned from Twitter after criticizing Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors for reportedly buying a $1.4 million home in a virtually all-white neighborhood, blasted Twitter, saying that Black Lives Matter is one of Big Tech’s “sacred cows.”
Whitlock told the Daily Mail, “BLM is one of Big Tech’s sacred cows. I’ve been harping on the fraudulence and the financial grift of BLM for years. I think Twitter has been looking for an excuse to de-platform me.”
Whitlock noted, “Twitter locked my account around 4 p.m. Friday. They said my account was locked because I revealed personal information about someone. They said I needed to remove the tweet that linked the dirt.com story about Cullors buying a house in Topanga.”
“I find it hypocritical,” Whitlock said of Cullors purchasing the $1.4 million home in Topanga Canyon in the hills of Los Angeles. “There is so much hypocrisy. She’s acting like a capitalist.”
Turning to Twitter, Whitlock asserted, “They want you to remove the tweet to start your 12-hour sentence. Why should I remove the tweet? They have already removed it. I sat back and said I’m going to do nothing, and see where this story goes.”
“I’m going to play Nelson Mandela in the Twitter jail,” he joked, adding that Twitter banning him had only given his take more publicity, pointing out it “has gone exactly how I wanted it to go.”
Last Friday, Whitlock called out Cullors, tweeting, “Black Lives Matter founder buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. She’s with her people!”
When he was criticized on Twitter, he responded, “Do you even comprehend my take? She had a lot of options on where to live. She chose one of the whitest places in California. She’ll have her pick of white cops and white people to complain about. That’s a choice, bro.”

Whitlock told The Daily Mail that BLM founders, including Cullors, were “making millions of dollars off the backs of these dead black men who they wouldn’t spit on if they were on fire and alive.”
The Daily Mail pointed out, “It’s not clear if or how Cullors is paid by the organization, as its finances are not public. … BLM raised $90 million last year, the AP has reported, but it’s unclear how leaders are paid — if they are paid — because the organization’s finances are opaque, a fact that has sparked criticism, even among local BLM chapters.”
The Daily Wire reported on Sunday:
One of the founders of the far-left Black Lives Matter movement is reportedly on a “real-estate buying binge,” already purchasing four homes with a price tag totaling upwards of $3 million. Thirty-seven-year-old Patrisse Khan-Cullors “went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records,” the New York Post reported Sunday.
The progressive activist was also eyeing a spot in an “ultra-exclusive” resort in the Bahamas, where the likes of musician Justin Timberlake and iconic golfer Tiger Woods both have homes.
Whitlock was not the only one who slammed Cullors for the purchase of the home in Topanga Canyon; Vallejo for Social Justice blasted, “’We’re talking generational wealth off of the deaths & struggle of Black folks here. Justice Teams Network & BLM founder paid $1.4 million dollars for a home. This past week we bought a cot for our unhoused Black elder friend to keep him off the ground.”
Post-Millennial Editor-at-Large Andy Ngo tweeted: “Cullors identifies as a communist & advocates for the abolishment of capitalism.”
