Falling In Reverse vocalist Ronnie Radke claims he has received a “shadow ban” from Twitter (‘X’ as it is now called) for his comments on gender identity.
Radke, no stranger to controversy, launched the first salvo on July 25th.
“The same people that call me a womanizer, abuser, and bigot are the same people that support the ideology that trans can have periods and support tampon companies making trans the spokesperson. It’s extremely offensive to all women, to mock their biology. stop pretending this is okay.”
After receiving blowback for his comments Radke added another post.
“We have brainwashed kids into thinking that basic biology and common sense need to be argued, the confusion of American kids is the agenda to the powers that be, divide and conquer. A man isn’t a man and a women isn’t a woman anymore, nobody can tell you what a women is, they’re all terrified to get publicly shamed for it.”
A shadow ban occurs when a platform hides users’ tweets, retweets and replies from a feed and search bar making it impossible for users to engage with a tweet’s author.
In addition, Tik Tok decided to ban Radke last Saturday.
“Freedom of speech is dead, America has fallen,” concluded the singer.
