One of the attorneys for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, the young man involved in a fatal shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, is furious with the CEO of Twitter after his account was flagged for “glorifying violence” when he shared a fund to help his client.
Rittenhouse was charged with “murder” when he shot and killed two BLM protesters, and shot and injured another man. Has pleaded not guilty, and his legal team says this is a case of “self-defense.”
Lin Wood, the famed attorney, who represented young Nick Sandmann, and also who represented the parents of Jonbenet Ramsey, was absolutely livid when he was locked out of his account.
Mr. Wood has had enough of biased social media, and says he plans to sue Twitter and bring down CEO Jack Dorsey’s “ass.”
‘I was arrested today & confined in Twitter jail falsely accused of glorifying violence. I was exonerated this evening by a finding of ‘incorrectly actioned.’ I am free tonight,’ Wood tweeted after his account was restored.
‘Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested on 8/26 & is confined in Illinois jail falsely accused of murder. Kyle will be exonerated when truth is revealed by a finding of ‘incorrectly actioned.’ Kyle will be free soon.’
Wood now plans to file a lawsuit against Twitter and its CEO Jack Dorsey.
He told Fox News that his account being blocked was just the later example of Twitter trying to censor conservatives.
‘I’m going to take Jack Dorsey’s a** down,’ Wood said.
‘He has been abusing the First Amendment of this country for his own agenda.’
Wood said he knew Twitter would try and censor him and that he had been careful to abide by Twitter’s terms of service.
‘I knew they were going to censor me because I’m sending a message of hope,’ he said. ‘I’m sending a message of truth. And I’m sending a message that Kyle Rittenhouse is innocent.’
He said he has been compiling a ‘mountain of evidence’ against the social media giant to prove they are suppressing free speech.
A Twitter spokesperson later said Wood’s account was mistakenly block
A spokesperson for Twitter is now saying that Wood’s account was “mistakenly” locked.
“This account was incorrectly actioned,” the Twitter spokesperson said. “This has been reversed and the account has been reinstated.”
