On Wednesday, Twitter permanently banned alt-right troll Baked Alaska — known in the real world as Tim “Treadstone” Gionet — from the platform. Gionet’s account, in case you’re not familiar with this particularly gross corner of the internet, was full of tweets about the persecution of white people, the infamous neo-Nazi slogan “14 words,” and jokes about putting people in gas chambers.
Later on Wednesday, Gionet, clearly not at all mad, started a livestream on YouTube from an In-N-Out Burger in California. It quickly went downhill.
“It sucks, it’s crazy. For no reason. I was given no reason,” Gionet said. “I have no idea why. I woke up and I was suspended … Baked Alaska did nothing wrong.”
The other customers seemed to care a whole lot less than Gionet.
The hero of the saga, though, is this British man, who apparently drove to In-N-Out in order to explain to Gionet that Twitter, a private company, is free to ban him.
Gionet’s banning comes a week after Twitter verified Jason Kessler, the man who organized the white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this year. People quickly criticized Twitter for validating Kessler’s profile and the platform has since stopped verifying any new profiles until it can reevaluate what it really means to have a verified profile.
