First reported by Big League Politics, conservative firebrand Candace Owens was suspended from tweeting for 12 hours after posting the exact same messages as New York Times editor, replacing “white” for “black” in reference to race.
“BLOWN AWAY by the amount of patriots that just came to my side to make this happen,” she said on Twitter, posting a screenshot of an email from Twitter support. “I will be periscoping LIVE about this entire debacle, in 30 mins. I am blessed to know you all.”

BLP reported earlier:
“White people are only fit to live underground like groveling goblins. They have stopped breeding and will all go extinct soon. I enjoy being cruel to white women,” Jeong wrote on Twitter.
That was fine by Twitter standards.
But for replacing “white” with “black,” and Tweeting the exact same message, black conservative Candace Owens was blocked from using her Twitter account.
After conservative backlash from the likes of Tom Fitton and other conservative news outlets, Owens’ Twitter account has been restored to its full functionality.
