Keri Hilson Dragged On Twitter For Defending Donald Trump
R&B singer Keri Hilson, has been trending on Twitter after she came out publicly to defend Donald Trump and his freedom of speech. Trump, 74, had his Twitter account permanently deleted on Friday, Jan. 8, 2021.
The action was as a result of Twitter officials believing that the president incited the violence and insurrection at the U.S. Capitol with his persistently inflammatory rhetoric.
The founders of the social media app also decided that the commander-in-chief was using the platform to provoke his mammoth followership to commit similar acts in the near future.
Hilson, however, contends that the country could be sliding on the slippery slope of leaving it to a small group of people to determine who has the right to express themselves over the social media airwaves.
Keri took to Twitter to defend the allegedly racist soon-to-be ex-president. She told her fans that it was “dangerous” to ban Donald Trump from Twitter.
She explained, “imagine other leaders or popular figures not being able to voice their opinion if it opposes the majority of world leaders.”
She further claimed, “Our freedom of speech [is] being taken from us.” She added, “If the leader of the free world can vibe removed [from Twitter], imagine that same right of civilians.”
Of course, folks on Twitter are having a great day dragging her for her remarks. See some reactions below :
