Elexus Jionde faces barrage of harassment after tweeting about 9/11 and black history
Jionde’s tweetstorm on black history prompted a largely positive response. However, it also triggered an onslaught of harassment, including racist comments and death threats.
“I’ve received death threats, racist jokes, and a lot of tweets regarding my future children having cancer. That [first] tweet has since gone viral, and without the 40+ tweets accompanying it, there are people in my mentions telling me that I’m a disgrace to my race and country for saying 9/11 only killed white people, when that isn’t what I said at all.”
Jionde believes that her thread being disabled was “no accident,” and she has accused Twitter of deliberately removing the thread.
“I believe Twitter deliberately unconnected the thread to deprive people of context. Some will say that it was some sort of system glitch or whatever, but I personally believe they disabled my thread because someone in the office was offended over the first tweet.”
Twitter outrightly denies this, suggesting that the problem could be the result of a bug.
“We can confirm that no proactive measures were taken to remove specific replies from this thread and are looking into this, in the event that a bug may have impacted it,” Twitter’s head of communications, Kristin Binns, told BuzzFeed News.
Twitter removes people’s posts all the time so their statement is bullshit. Twitter has deliberately worked against activists/activism as well so like.. free speech though right? Anyway I hope she has a paypal link
I have no faith in a proper investigation.
She was VERY close to my family. My Godfathers sister. Say her name! Baton Rouge has a petition to get a high school renamed to her name, HISTORY!!
I really still can’t believe this happened… such a prominent figure in BR to be taken away from us
Donate if you can please. I’m being charged with assault and battery for punching my racist neighbor for spitting on me during a pandemic. I need to pay for lawyer fees and to move out of my racist town. 💗

If you can’t donate, please reblog when you see this. I’m desperate. Thank you!
For those who don’t know, the Nigerian government have basically waged war on civilians in response to their protest to #EndSARS which is police brutality
This shit isn’t acceptable anywhere else and it sure as hell won’t be acceptable in Nigeria
Fuck the president for killing peaceful protesters and just know Nigerians are fed the fuck up and absolutely no good will come to this man for his crimes against humanity
￼ it is incredibly uncomfortable to be unable to find someone for you ￼
