The Twitter account that had periscoped the action was later banned on the platform.
Loomer was permanently banned from Twitter for criticizing Rep. Ilhan Omar, tweeting “Ilhan is pro Sharia Ilhan is pro- FGM Under Sharia homosexuals are oppressed & killed. Women are abused & forced to wear the hijab. Ilhan is anti Jewish.”
“Jack Dorsey told Rolling Stone magazine that he respects me because he loves protest. So, I took the protest to his house. He said Twitter is the public square. Since he has banned me from the public square, I decided to make his wall my very own social media wall,” Loomer told Gateway Pundit of her protest.
Loomer is currently suing the platform, as well as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), who she believes to have been responsible for the ban. Loomer and her company Illoominate Media are being represented by attorney Ronald Coleman of the New Jersey-based law firm Mandelbaum Salsburg, Big League Politics reports. She also made headlines and took over the top trending spot on Twitter in November, when she handcuffed herself to the company’s New York office.
