WATCH: Jesse Kelly Responds To Twitter Permanently Banning Him From Platform

Radio host Jesse Kelly said on Monday night that Twitter still has not given him any explanation as to why they permanently banned his account and that they won’t even allow him to appeal their decision.

“Why did Twitter take you off its platform?” Fox News host Tucker Carlson asked.

“Nobody knows. Twitter kicked me off the platform because I was a mainstream voice on the Right that spoke the truth,” the two-time congressional candidate and war veteran told Carlson. “They’ve given me no explanation — as they told Congress they would give explanations. All they sent was an email that said, ‘You are permanently banned and you can’t appeal it for repeated rules violations.'”

“All of a sudden my account vanished like a Hillary Clinton email,” Kelly continued. “They completely banished me so I’m not even able to log in and email Twitter support.”

Kelly later highlighted Twitter’s hypocrisy on how it polices accounts across the political spectrum, specifically noting that the left-wing social media platform has not taken any action against Louis Farrakhan after he referred to Jews as “termites.”


The Daily Wire reported earlier on Monday that according to a message that Kelly reportedly received from Twitter, the company appears to have “violated their own policy by not informing him of the content that apparently earned him the permanent suspension.”

“Twitter should not be regulated as a utility, but they’re going to end up being regulated if they continue to attack only people on the Right with little or no explanation,” Kelly told The Daily Wire.

The Daily Wire also reached out to Twitter for comment on why Kelly was suspended and received the following response from a Twitter spokesperson: “We have nothing to share on this account.”

The Daily Wire followed up with the same spokesperson, asking: “To combat the perception of bias against right-leaning accounts, can you provide any examples of major left-leaning accounts that have been suspended?”

The Daily Wire has not received a response.
