Earlier this evening, after 16-year-old conservative CJ Pearson was locked out of Twitter on the heels of Laura Loomer’s protest of the tech giant, two rabid left wing activists accused him of deactivating his own account as a “publicity stunt” during a time when Twitter censorship is a hotbed discussion.
A couple of hours after the apparent suspension, Pearson’s account came back online.
The conspiracy started when William LeGate, a former tech wiz kid turned anti-Trump troll, who has a substantial following on Twitter, claimed without evidence that Pearson’s account was not suspended, but rather deactivated by Pearson himself. LeGate is now best known for photos that emerged online of his large nipples.
“Oh, wow,” LeGate said. “You decided to restore your account? You realize people can tell when an account is suspended vs. deleted?”
LeGate posted side-by-side photos of Loomer’s banned account next to Pearson’s suspended account, surmising that since the messages were different, Pearson must have been pulling a stunt.
Conservative activist Ali Alexander advised LeGate to retract his lie, and said that Twitter would soon be providing an explanation for the suspension, and that LeGate’s lie would not hold. LeGate kept up the charade anyway.
“Nope, not retracting anything,” he said. “I never lied, and CJ was never suspended.”
LeGate Tweeted several more times back and forth with Alexander, sticking to his guns about his conspiracy theory.
Media Matters editor-at-large Parker Molloy piled on, spreading the conspiracy to her 146,000 followers.
“This is the same guy who once claimed that Obama blocked him (Obama did not block him) and got attention for it, right?,” she said.
“Ahh it is him! This is what he does!” she continued, linking to an article from now-defunct Gawker.
Big League Politics spoke with Alexander, a conservative operative, about the situation.
“It’s no secret that I have conversations with Twitter executives, and I’ve been one of the proponents of Twitter having conversations with conservatives,” he said. “I made it very clear to them that a 16-year-boy should not be defamed and lied about by left wing conspiracy theorists. I also made it clear to Twitter that this was their mistake and they needed to own it.”
Alexander also denounced the conspiracy theorist’s smears as an attempt to drudge up rumors about Pearson from the past.
Twitter made an official statement about the ban from its communications account shortly after Alexander and LeGate’s spat. As it turns out, Alexander was right.
“Our systems automatically locked CJ Pearson’s account in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As soon as we were alerted to the error, we reactivated it. It will take a couple of hours for the follower count to return to normal,” the company said.

BLP asked Alexander if Twitter’s explanation for the ban was legitimate, or it was just a pretext for conservative censorship.
“I don’t what this was, but it was one hell of a coincidence,” Abkar said.
Neither LeGate nor Molloy responded to a request for comment.
Facebook Directly Censoring Tucker Carlson in Advance of November Election
They fear Tucker Carlson.
Facebook is censoring Tucker Carlson just weeks away from the November 3rd presidential election, hoping to silence America’s most popular political news figure.
Tucker Carlson hosts the most popular cable television show in American history on Fox News, and he’s one of the only journalists(although he eschews the term) that Americans who distrust oligarch-controlled corporate media rely on for information.
Facebook notified Tucker’s page on the social media giant that his posts would have “reduced distribution” for what they’re falsely claiming is “repeated sharing of fake news.”
Facebook has previously censored an interview Tucker conducted with a Chinese dissident who claims that coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory by Chinese government researchers.
Tucker is the most prominent political figure to criticize the alliance of big business with the establishment Democrat Party, most notably the tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Facebook has now taken a page out of the Chinese or Soviet political playbook in censoring its own critics.
Left-wing whiners have been furiously clamoring for Facebook to censor more conservative and right-wing figures, pointing to the pitiful engagement that liberal pundits and politicians receive on the platform in comparison to figures like Tucker, Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Mark Levin.
