A Toronto man was suspended from Twitter for daring to speak ill of the internet’s latest obsession – Baby Yoda.
Podcaster Will Sloan found himself in ‘Twitter Jail’ after responding to an Esquire article about Baby Yoda with “I actually hope he dies painfully”.
Within minutes of sending the tweet, Twitter informed him that his account had been frozen for seven days for violating the platform’s rules against abuse and harassment.
Sloan insists his crack on Baby Yoda was just a joke and called the ban “the absolutely dumbest thing you could be banned for”.
Did Sloan deserve a timeout for his Baby Yoda tweet?
Do you think Disney was involved in reporting the tweet?
