Woods got banned for quoting The Wire, now he’s back and edgier than ever. Donald Trump loves it.
James Woods was fed up with PC culture on Twitter and made a few jokes some people took offense to. He’s back after his ban and is back to his usual tactics.
The 72-year-old actor known for his role as the original
RoboCop (wait, he wasn’t in RoboCop?!), James Woods, is a known conservative and Trump supporter who doesn’t shy away from speaking his mind and calling out PC culture. Unfortunately, he got banned for quoting a popular TV show.
Okay, so he wasn’t in RoboCop, but he was in cult classics like Videodrome and Once Upon a Time in America… those of you too young to remember those movies might remember him as Hades in the Disney animated version of Hercules.
However, his role as Sergio Leone, a gangster turned corrupt politician, in Once Upon a Time in America might have prepared him a bit for the modern political world.
Top-notch Comic and Pop-culture press, Bounding To Comics, first reported that the the conservative actor was banned from Twitter for simply quoting the television show The Wire. Woods tweeted, “‘If you try to kill the King, you better not miss.’ #HangThemAll”
Woods’ significant other, Sara Miller, revealed and email from Twitter claiming Woods’ tweet violated their “rules against abusive behavior.”
U.S. president, who has recently been acquitted of all charges in his impeachment, was not impressed with Twitter’s decision to ban the actor and responded on Twitter:
So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook! https://t.co/eHX3Z5CMXb— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 3, 2019
Woods’ was not too phased by his ban and used to time to focus on his personal life and take a break from social media. But when Robocop returned he was ready to fire back at Twitter and PC culture with one spicy tweet.
I was on vacation awhile, avoiding the news. How’d the #Mueller thing work out? The #impeachment scam? Who won the #Iowa caucuses? Is #MichaelAvenatti still a contender for the Democratic nomination for President? How’s #JeffreyEpstein doing?— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) February 7, 2020
The Twitterverse was ecstatic to see James Woods back return and his first Tweet even got the U.S. presidents attention.
Welcome back James! https://t.co/m116MGrrRo— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 7, 2020
