A popular television and movie streaming service was forced to delete a Tweet imploring Americans to wear “appropriate and respectful” Halloween costumes after discovering that thousands of Americans are not interested in being told what to do.
“If you’re dressing up for #Huluween this year, this is your reminder to wear a costume that is culturally appropriate and respectful to others. Let’s celebrate the holiday in a way that we can all enjoy,” Hulu said in the now-removed Tweet.
The Tweet had more than 3,700 replies and only 366 likes, commonly referred to on Twitter as a “ratio,” which has a negative connotation. Though the Tweet is now deleted, some of the replies are still active.
“Is this Handmaid’s Tale costume appropriate? My friend and I want to wear it for our podcast,” said author Christina Hoff Sommers.

“Hey thanks for the reminder. It reminded me to cancel my Hulu subscription,” replied another Twitter user.

Another user, Noel Dolan, gave Hulu a brief history lesson.
Hulu appears to have learned their lesson. Social justice talking points are not as a popular outside of Silicon Valley as they might have thought.
The company did not respond to a comment request.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
