You can now get sacked for a one word tweet expressing support for Trump, by Tyler Durden.
Nineteen-year old American professional cyclist Quinn Simmons was suspended from his team Thursday for his tweet showing mere indirect support to President Trump …
Dutch journalist José Been had initially expressed to her American followers that “this horrible presidency ends for you,” after which she added “if you follow me and support Trump, you can go.”
That’s when Simmons responded with a simple, “Bye” and included a hand emoji waving.
Immediately others jumped in, with one Twitter user writing that the professional cyclist was “Apparently a Trumper” (gasp!).
Simmons confirmed simply with “That’s right” and an American flag emoji.
Trek-Segafredo issued a statement suspending Simmons “until further notice” for what it called “divisive, incendiary” comments which were “detrimental” to the team.
Free speech? What you can say without dire consequences keeps shrinking. The new left bullies are closing in on all of us.
