Daily Wire employee just got the boot from Twitter for tweeting about brussel sprouts

We’ve all heard the horror stories from conservative figures who have been booted from social media for sharing what the liberal overlords consider “controversial” opinion on the hot button topics of the day.

Sometimes it feels like just being a conservative without sharing anything at all can get you banned from Twitter.

Well, as it turns out, that isn’t far from the truth. A figure for the Daily Wire just got canned from the platform for tweeting about brussel sprouts. Yes, brussel sprouts.

Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro revealed the suspension on Twitter Thursday morning after Boreing reportedly received a note from Twitter informing him of a 12-hour suspension because he’d encouraged another Twitter user — me, your fair reporter, Emily Zanotti — to commit “self-harm” in a critique of my recipe for the roasted side dish.

The joke dates back several days, from an incident on Twitter in which I was trying to impress my followers with my mastery of cooking Brussels sprouts with in bacon grease. Clearly not a fan of the tiny cabbage, Boreing responded that the only real way to cook Brussels sprouts was to sear them in a hot, cast iron pan, then toss them away and use the pan to sear one’s own face off, “because even that would be better than Brussels sprouts.”

For the record, I did not take my boss’s suggestion to physically maim my face seriously, but someone apparently did, because they reported Boreing’s tweet to the Twitter powers-that-be for “violence.”

In their note, Twitter outlined their policy against “encouraging self-harm” and directed Boreing to their “safety center” where he could locate resources to help him deal with his negative, violent thoughts. The note ended with the missive, “please know that there are people out there who care about you, and that you are not alone.”

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro breaks down what likely happened to cause this insanity in the first place.

As of this publication, Boering is still under the power of the ban hammer, but that could and hopefully will change soon.

This is the kind of nuttiness that emerges from ridiculous standards of political correctness combined with the childishness of modern day leftists.

Let’s hope the folks responsible for this grow up sometime soon.
