The decade's most triggering comedy
Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King is already back on Twitter after what appears to have been an hours-long deletion of his account.
The race-hustler wasn’t throwing a hissy fit over Tesla founder Elon Musk taking over the social media platform, he claims, but took his account offline because he was receiving “death threats.”
King has not posted any screenshots of the alleged death threats.
“I didn’t delete my account,” King wrote in a response to conservative Jack Posobiec. “You literally made that up.”
“I was getting death threats and hack attempts from your buddies who stormed the Capitol and had to make it more secure,” King claimed. “I’m right here. And you are a a [sic] white supremacist.”
“Receipts are right here Talcum X,” the conservative added, tacking on a screenshot of the offline account.

King on Monday seemed to have deleted the Twitter account, even if temporarily, after he accused Musk of buying Twitter to advance “white power.” Many online took a screenshot of the offline Twitter account.

“At its root, [Elon Musk] wanting to purchase Twitter is not about left vs right,” King accused Musk, hours before the account went offline. “It’s about white power.”
“The man was raised in Apartheid by a white nationalist,” he continued. “He’s upset that Twitter won’t allow white nationalists to target/harass people. That’s his definition of free speech.”
“Elon Musk has openly called himself a ‘free speech absolutist’ and said that he wants to create a space where anything can be said about anyone,” the activist claimed. “That’s why white nationalists are giddy today. Here on Twitter and other platforms that I track daily. It’s dangerous.”
Twitter on Monday announced an agreement to be acquired by Musk for $54.20 per share in a deal valued at $44 billion, The Daily Wire reported.
“Under the terms of the agreement, Twitter stockholders will receive $54.20in cash for each share of Twitter common stock that they own upon closing of the proposed transaction,” the platform announced. “The purchase price represents a 38% premium to Twitter’s closing stock price on April 1, 2022, which was the last trading day before Mr. Musk disclosed his approximately 9% stake in Twitter.”
