Fighting and getting suspended from social media – two things that Sean Strickland is very good at.
On Thursday, Strickland was suspended from his Twitter account. Honestly, it was kind of crazy that it didn’t happen sooner, but the middleweight contender is without a Twitter account.
The exact tweets have yet to be confirmed on what got him banned, but there are two in particular that probably did the trick. It all started as Stricland was commenting on the tragic mass shooting that happened this week in Uvalde, Texas, where 19 children and two teachers were killed.
What Strickland wrote
Strickland went on Twitter and wrote the following two tweets.
“‘I have a gun on me, you wouldn’t try to fight me,’ let me stop you there, I don’t try to fight anyone,” Strickland wrote. “If you run your mouth I give you an option to be a man and step up….If your go to is ‘grab my gun’ you’re a little bitch and the problem with the world. Pussy!!!”
“I just gotta say countries that don’t have gun ownership as a human right really are pathetic,” Strickland wrote. “‘Germany hasn’t had a mass shooting’, ‘England doesn’t have mass shooting’, blah blah you also don’t have fu*king men either so enjoy it you nutless trannies. That is all goodbye.”
That last tweet was clearly against Twitter’s guidelines, and most most likely got him banned.
Not the first time
This isn’t the first time Strickland has got suspended from a social media platform. The whole reason why he started to use Twitter again was that Instagram banned him in November 2021 for “joking about a pedophile dying.”
On Friday, he asked his followers if he should make another Twitter via his Instagram Story.
Now that Strickland is banned from Twitter, he can double the focus on his potential number one contender fight against Alex Pereria at UFC 276.
