Twitter Bans Avi Yemini For Criticizing Greta Thunberg's Parents (Later Unbanned)

Twitter Banned

Avi Yemini was permanently banned from Twitter after publishing a tweet that was critical of Greta Thunberg’s parents:

Dear @GretaThunberg,

I hate the @UN more than you could imagine, but they didn’t steal your dreams or childhood — your parents did.

They should be jailed for the sickening child abuse they put you through.

They’ve scared you into an extremist.

Sydney Watson - Tweet About Avi’s Ban

After significant backlash, and a very successful #FreeAvi campaign, Avi’s account was reinstated about two days later:

WOW! The #FreeAvi campaign worked.

Thank you all!! ❤️❤️

I’ve lost some followers in the process, so please RT this to let them know I’m back.

Let the triggering begin!
