Twitter Rules Rosie O’Donnell’s Crude Ben Shapiro Tweets Aren’t Abusive, He Cries ‘Double Standard’

“We have reviewed your report carefully and have found that there was no violation of Twitter rules against abusive behavior,” the company says

Twitter has ruled that Rosie O’Donnell telling conservative pundit Ben Shapiro to “suck my d—” was not a violation of their platform rules and that her intent had been taken out of context.

“We have reviewed your report carefully and have found that there was no violation of Twitter rules against abusive behavior,” the company said in a statement, which Shapiro posted to Twitter. “Some tweets may seem to be abusive when viewed in isolation, but may not be when viewed in the context of a larger conversation.”

O’Donnell’s statement was in response to Shapiro taking aim at her offer of money to GOP senators willing to reverse their votes on the recently passed tax reform bill. She later deleted the post, but not before Shapiro could make hay over the matter.

The conservative editor in chief of DailyWire and former Breitbart reporter said that O’Donnell’s tweet was sexual harassment and he would be reporting her to the company.

In an earlier tweet, Shapiro suggested that his goal was not to get O’Donnell suspended but rather to highlight the oft-discussed double-standard Twitter has employed when handling offensive comments from liberals and conservatives.

“Just reported @Rosie for targeted harassment, mainly to see if Twitter does indeed have a double standard,” he tweeted Saturday. “Everyone knows if Rosie were conservative, Twitter would suspend her in a hot second. So, Twitter, put your money where your mouth is.  #M3Too.”
