Twitter Changes Mind, Removes Rosie O’Donnell’s Vulgar Tweet Against Ben Shapiro

Rosie O’Donnell and Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro had a bit of a Twitter spat last week after the right-wing pundit called her out for arguably trying to bribe Republican Senators to vote against the GOP tax bill. Since then, Shapiro reported Rosie to Twitter for an off-color remark, leading the social media company to remove the offending tweet.

The online battle got rather carried away, especially after Shapiro said that President Donald Trump would be carved into Mount Rushmore if he had Attorney General Jeff Sessions investigate the former talk show host.

O’Donnell responded by saying, “suck my dick ben.”

Friday morning, Shapiro tweeted that he reported Rosie’s vulgar tweet.

Shapiro later made it clear that his request was meant to test Twitter’s policies, not to have O’Donnell punished.

The initial result seemed to be exactly what Shapiro expected, as Twitter notified him that Rosie’s tweets did not violate their rules against abusive behavior.

Later in the weekend, however, Twitter appeared to have a change of heart, and on Sunday, Shapiro shared a second email he received, which informed him that Rosie did in fact violate Twitter’s terms, and that the offending language would be removed.
