Jordan Peterson responds to Twitter suspension

Jordan Peterson Twitter ban news

The controversial author has refused to apologize for his post on a transgender actor

Canadian author and clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson has said he would “rather die” than delete a flagged tweet and will not apologize for his views if his Twitter suspension is lifted. Peterson’s account was suspended this week over a tweet about LGBT Pride Month and a transgender actor.

“Twitter [is] a rat-hole, in the final analysis, I have probably contributed to that, while trying to use, understand and master that horrible, toxic platform,” Peterson told the National Post this week.

“If I can’t be let back on because I won’t apologize, I could care less.”

“There are no rules on Twitter except don’t do what we don’t like today,” Peterson said. “They are always applied post hoc by algorithms and idiots bent on maintaining their woke superiority.”

Peterson insisted he would “rather die” than be forced to remove his own tweet.

According to reports, in the since-removed tweet, Peterson was commenting on a news story about actor Elliot Page, formerly known as Ellen Page, who stars in the Netflix series ‘The Umbrella Academy’ and won an Oscar nomination for the lead role in the 2007 movie ‘Juno.’ Page came out as a trans man in 2020.

“Remember when pride was a sin?” Peterson wrote, referring to LGBT Pride Month. He added that “Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician.”

Peterson’s daughter, Mikhaila Peterson, posted a screenshot of the notice her father had received from Twitter. The social media platform said Peterson’s account was suspended for violating the policy that bans “hateful conduct,” which includes making threats and harassment based on gender identity.

Peterson, whose books include ‘12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos’, is known as a strong critic of “cancel culture,” political correctness and identity politics. Opponents often held protests at events he attended. He has five million subscribers on his YouTube channel.

  1. This man predicted a tsunami of lawsuits in the coming years once all those impressionable and unfortunate teens who’ve fallen for this garbage awaken and realise just how horribly they’ve been misled and just how badly society has failed them.

    • ???????????? well said. We do live in a upside down world. Young children are encouraged to mutilate their bodies with parents encouraging them. Sad, sad world.

      • Munchausen by proxy has basically gone mainstream. And why not? Every other toxic human behaviour is in fashion now.

        “Conversion therapy” AKA basically just reading the bible is now officially a crime (likely because it probably works), while abortion is not only legal, but celebrated as a virtue.

        Many years ago when I was still just a little kid, I often heard the grandparents waffling on about Revelations and the end of days, the devil basically walking the earth corrupting men’s hearts and his legions sowing misery and suffering throughout the world. I used to laugh.

        Im still not an overly religious person myself, but I stopped laughing quite a while ago.
