Fox wrote about her social media plight in a recent article, explaining how she's repeatedly been targeted by the "big boys" as her work has gotten more popular. Fox's YouTube channel, for instance, was apparently demonetized not long after conservative talk show legend Rush Limbaugh read one of her articles aloud on his program.
Matt Drudge has also picked up Fox's work, which further drew attention to her and put her in the crosshairs of Twitter. An article she published entitled, "Teachers Attend 'LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP' Sensitivity Training (WTF?)" garnered plenty of scrutiny, including from the LGBTQ mob, which accused Fox of "harming people" with her free speech.
In responding to these allegations via Twitter, Fox told her critics that they "change the meaning of words" and teach children that science, a.k.a. biological reality, is false (though she used a more "colorful" swear word to express this). Fox further pointed out that the LGBTQ mafia is the entity actually responsible for hurting people like American business-owner Jack Phillips of the Colorado-based Masterpiece Cakeshop, who is being accused of "unlawful discrimination" against a gay couple that demanded Phillips bake them a wedding cake in violation of his religious convictions.
At the end of her tweet, Fox included the words "Go hang," which she says is a colloquial way of telling someone, "I don't care what you say." This is how it's listed in the Cambridge Dictionary, anyway, but Twitter apparently doesn't recognize this definition as valid. Not long after tweeting this in response to one of her critics, Fox was presented with a message that many Twitter users are encountering these days:
"We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically, for: 1) Violating our rules against abusive behavior. You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behavior an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else's voice. As a result, we temporarily limited some of your account features. While in this state, you can still browse Twitter, but you're limited to only sending Direct Messages to your followers – no Tweets, Retweets, follows, or likes ... Your account will be restore to full functionality in: 12 hours and 0 minutes."
While it can be argued that Fox's inclusion of the words "Go hang" at the end of her tweet represents a type of threat, it's no accident that Twitter decided to target her specifically while allowing tens of thousands of other far more threatening tweets from the "left" to exist on the platform. We won't include those here so as to not draw needless attention to them, but anyone who uses Twitter already knows that aggressive, attacking language is all-too-common.
And if you're thinking to yourself: well, Megan Fox just needs to be more careful – at least she got her account back! Well, this is only partly true. Just a few hours after her account was reinstated, Fox saw it go bye-bye once again, this time in response to her retweet of a something President Trump tweeted about Muslims murdering people and tossing them off roofs.
