Twitter Suspends Jordan Peterson After Commenting On Elliot’s Page – Internet Reacts To It
The original tweet has been deleted and Jordan Peterson is banned. But a screenshot of the tweet is starting to circulate on social media with calls for Elon Musk.
“Do you remember when pride was a sin?” And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal doctor. – says Peterson in the tweet.
Dave Rubin is among the first to react to this. He says – “The madness continues on Twitter. @jordanbpeterson was suspended for this tweet on Ellen Page. He just told me he will “never” delete the tweet. Paging @elonmusk…”
In 2020, Elliot comes out as transgender. Now Jordan Peterson is receiving criticism for ‘giving the ‘Umbrella Academy’ star a dead name.
This isn’t the first time Peterson has taken an anti-transgender stance. Throughout his career, he has repeatedly asserted his anti-transgender stance. While on the Joe Rogan podcast, he said “transgender” was spreading like a contagion.
Additionally, he likened it to “satanic ritual abuse.” It uses the logic that you have to accept what you are and stop trying to be what you are not. People are obsessed with presenting themselves as something they physically are not and cannot be. Instead of kissing, they go on and forcefully push towards something unthinkable.
Mikhaila Peterson is the daughter of the controversial psychologist. She also supports her father on his opinions and positions. She shared a screenshot of the tweet where she openly criticizes Elon Musk for not respecting the censorship policy.
“Wow. @jordanbpeterson got a warning on twitter. No more twittering until he deletes the tweet. Definitely not a free speech platform yet @elonmusk” – she said.
Prior to this, Peterson received criticism from the general public because he criticized Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model Yumi Nu. He simply said that he thinks oversized bodies are “not beautiful”. And after receiving so much criticism, he said he was quitting Twitter.
