Alt-Right Super Troll Mocked For Handcuffing Herself To Twitter Headquarters After Being Banned

Alt-Right mega-troll Laura Loomer is back in the news after she spent the afternoon handcuffed to Twitter’s headquarters in protest of the social media platform banning her from the site.

Armed with a bullhorn and several signs accusing Twitter of political bias and censorship, Laura Loomer handcuffed herself to the entrance of Twitter’s New York headquarters today.

“Twitter is upholding sharia when they ban me for tweeting facts about sharia law,” Loomer was heard screaming during a livestream of the incident.

Loomer, who is Jewish, wore a giant yellow Star of David on her clothing in an unsubtle and offensive nod to the Holocaust:

Loomer was banned from Twitter for violating its terms of service, which prohibit users from engaging in hate speech like the anti-Muslim invective she’s famous for. She also made headlines when she tried to disrupt a Congressional hearing about social media, only to get drowned out by a congressman’s auctioneer call.

Loomer, who has several allies on the alt-right and in conservative media, has also been banned from ride-sharing services Uber and Lyft after she complained about not being able to get a “non-Muslim” driver.

She refused to budge until she gets her Twitter account back. “If I have to, I’ll pee on myself,” Loomer told The Verge. “I haven’t eaten or drunken [sic] today.”

Loomer has a long history of conducting unhinged publicity stunts that backfire, and this time is no different. She was savaged on Twitter today (but at least she can’t see it).

Even the police were laughing at her.

Twitter basically just ignored her, which is probably the most devastating response to an attention-hungry conservative protesting shadowbanning.

After around two and a half hours of “protesting,” Loomer volunteered to be freed from her handcuffs (but is still locked in Twitter jail).

Just another day in the totally sane world of right-wing politics, folks!
