A controversial and outspoken supporter of President Trump was suspended from Twitter on Saturday.
Former Trump advisor, Roger Stone had his account suspended by Twitter after he launched a series of curse-laden tweets towards CNN reporters.
In a written statement send via text message, Stone told Fox News, “I have been informed that I have been suspended for 3 hours and 12 minutes.” He continued, “While I am uncertain why, sometimes the stark truth offends some people.” He ended his comment by writing, “I’ll be baaaaaak.”
As of Saturday evening, the @RogerJStoneJr account was still unavailable. “This account has been suspended,” the page for Stone’s account read.
When Fox News approached Twitter for a comment, a spokesperson from the social media giant said the company will not comment on individual accounts. But the company cited its policy on abusive behavior that states users “may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others.”
The suspension is the result of tweets made by Stone towards CNN anchors Jake Tapper and Don Lemon.
Stone made the his remarks after the network reported that a federal grand jury has approved the first charges in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation into possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
In one tweet, he called Don Lemon a “dumb piece of sh_t.” He also called him “dumber than dog sh_t.” Lemon hosts an evening show on CNN weeknights.
He also referred to Lemon and Tapper as “human excrement” and CNN contributor Ana Navarro as a “dumbf_ck.”
Stone, who was interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee for its Russia probe, is no longer invited to appear on major cable networks. He often appears on the internet-based program hosted by controversial conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones.
