Jonathan Daniel Brown (Project X, Kid Cannabis) was suspended from Twitter, possibly permanently.
“I probably deserved to banned,” Brown said. “But I’m happy to get my life back.”
Brown had a long history of trolly behavior on Twitter which resulted in multiple suspensions, based on his attitude that Twitter is a “shitty message board” and should be treated as such.
The killing blow came when Brown urged his more than 100k followers to call the office of his former agent Michael Kives and his partner Darnell Strom, who were revealed by Wikileaks to have contacted Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) to chide her for endorsing Bernie Sanders at the convention. Brown, an ardent Sanders supporter, felt the email was sent to intimidate the congresswoman and tweeted out the agent’s public office number.
“They were terrible agents to me who hurt my career,” he said. “They’re ex-bankers who know nothing about movies and are continuing to sell Hollywood off to China. I regret ever working with CAA. The fact that they’re intimidating politicians makes me ill.”
Brown’s previous Twitter escapades involved some nasty fights with now disgraced feminist film critic Devin Faraci. Faraci lived across the hall from Brown and held major beef because he thought Project X was sexist and offensive.
It’s ironic that a Twitter terror like Faraci, whose constant personal attacks drove a TV writer to spend thousands on therapy, still remains on the site, while Brown was booted. But Faraci probably won’t be Tweeting for awhile as he is embroiled in some pretty serious sexual assault allegations.
“I do think there is a double standard in that Twitter will censor those who are ideologically not on the same wavelength as the rest of their staff.”
Brown is happy to leave social media behind, and believes it will improve his career. He just finished directing his first short film, Horseshoe Theory, about a white supremacist arms dealer falling in love with an ISIS terrorist.
Twitter declined to comment on the suspension.
