Punished for being Right

The headline sums it up: American cyclist suspended over pro-Trump tweet.

A rising American cycling star has been suspended after expressing support for President Trump in a Twitter feud with a Dutch journalist. [...]

"If you follow me and support Trump, you can go,” the journalist Jose Been wrote in a now-deleted tweet.

“Bye,” Simmons replied, accompanied by Black hand waving emoji.

The teenager made the situation worse by apologizing:

“To those who found the color of the emoji racist, I can promise that I did not mean for it to be interpreted that way. I would like to apologize to everyone who found this offensive as I strongly stand against racism in any form,” Simmons said.

Vox Day has the correct take.
