Twitter Suspends John Pierce

Twitter Suspended Kyle Rittenhouse

Twitter suspended John Pierce, a defense attorney representing Kyle Rittenhouse, because he posted the following tweet which was deemed to be “glorifying violence”:

Kyle Rittenhouse will go down in American history alongside that brave unknown patriot at Lexington Green who fired “The Shot Heard Round The World” on April 19, 1775. A Second American Revolution against Tyranny has begun. #FightBack

When he was unsuspended, he noted that he was the second attorney representing Kyle Rittenhouse to be suspended by Twitter after advocating for their client, the first being Lin Wood a couple of days prior:

I am back from the Twitter penalty box. Twitter has now censored TWO of Kyle Rittenhouse’s lawyers, myself and @LLinWood. I would like to thank Jack Dorsey for handing us yet another lawsuit. #FightBack #fearless #FreeKyle #redemption
