On Wednesday night, Twitter suspended British rapper, author, and podcast host Zuby for “misgendering” a far-left transgender activist and data scientist by responding, “ok dude.”
Emily Gorcenski, who is biologically male but identifies as a transgender woman, apparently bragged to Zuby about sleeping with more women than him, the rapper told The Daily Wire.
In response, Zuby replied, “ok, dude.”
That was enough for Zuby to be reported for “hateful conduct” and temporarily suspended from Twitter.
“[Zuby] was suspended for saying ‘Ok dude,'” right-wing politico Robby Starbuck posted Thursday, captioning screenshots of the interaction. “He was replying to a person who told him she sleeps with more women than [Zuby] does.”
“‘Ok dude’ is literally all he said,” Starbuck noted. “In common vernacular ‘dude’ is used to refer to anybody.”

Openly celebrating the suspension, Gorcenski posted a screenshot of an update from Twitter. “Your report about @ZubyMusic has been received,” the tech platform said, adding, “After our review, we’ve locked the account for breaking our rules.”
“Lol misogynist down. Pronouns enforced,” Gorcenski cheered, captioning the screenshot.

Last year, Zuby threw a wrench in the “equality” argument regarding male-to-female transgender athletes competing against biological females by “identifying” as a woman and obliterating the British women’s deadlift record.
“I keep hearing about how biological men don’t have any physical strength advantage over women in 2019,” he wrote via Twitter. “So watch me DESTROY the British Women’s deadlift record without trying.”
“P.S. I identified as a woman whilst lifting the weight,” he added. “Don’t be a bigot.”

After easily demolishing the deadlift record, Zuby moved on to break the women’s bench press record.
“Just took the UK women’s bench press record too…,” he captioned the video. “For reps. Strong, stunning and brave.”

As far as his suspension goes, Zuby told The Daily Wire, “I will be back soon.”
Gorcenski is a radical far-left activist who, in 2018, Bitch Media included in their “Bitch 50” list, noting that the activist was pepper-sprayed at the “Unite the Right” rally:
Charlottesville resident Emily Gorcenski was horrified when, in the summer of 2017, she learned that white supremacists were planning to overtake her city. And in the course of protesting ultimately tragic Unite the Right rally, she was pepper-sprayed by one of its speakers (who would later serve three months in prison for it). But Gorcenski’s expertise as a data scientist armed her with a powerful weapon against the alt-right: Along with other activists, she created First Vigil, a public database used to track the criminal activity of white nationalists. Journalists can use the database for research on significant court cases, and it’s a crucial tool for anyone seeking a broader look at an increasingly widespread hate movement.
Gorcenski has a host of radical tweets published online, such as openly condoning violence against “nazis” (Note: Folks like The Daily Wire’s own Ben Shapiro has been criticized as a “nazi” for advancing conservative ideology. Shapiro is a constant target of the alt-right and an orthodox Jew.) and this one from 2017: “Aww. As a transgender woman, I am genuinely afraid of Republicans murdering me if I stop for gas in the wrong part of Virginia.”
