Suspended? Tom Arnold’s Twitter Account Goes Silent After Crude, Racist Attack on Diamond and Silk Taken Down
The Twitter account of actor Tom Arnold has been silent since October 29 following the taking down of a crude, racist tweet addressed to Diamond and Silk, suggesting that Arnold has been suspended by Twitter. Arnold is a Trump-hating white man, Trump supporters Lynnette ‘Diamond’ Hardaway and Rochelle ‘Silk’ Richardson are black sisters.

Arnold tweeted to Diamond and Silk during an online feud, “I’d like to investigate every crack curve & crevice of you two tons of fun’s heavenly bodies. I’ll start with intensive oral examination of your naughty bits. So take off all yo clothes & get your big booties butts back into Big Daddy’s hot tub. Don’t bring Streisand. Too freaky.”
Diamond and Silk responded, “Is this tweet considered online sexual harassment or predatory behavior? Where is the #MeToo [email protected], you may not have respect for yourself but you don’t get to disrespect Diamond and Silk!”

Arnold’s original attack on Diamond and Silk was taken down by Twitter for violating the posting rules.
However this racist attack by Arnold was still up as of publication of this article:
“You wrote @ me first. Expressed your bug ass love for me on Twitter many times. You’ve made sexy videos about me for the world to see. You SAID MY NAME. Now stop playin G’s. Our love is sacred. Get on over here. Grab Popeyes Chicken on way. Wings & thighs. Dark meat only babies.”

Twitter took down another tweet by Arnold last month that made an assassination comment against President Trump during a rally in Dallas that said, “Don’t get too cocky traitor. They showed up for JFK too.”
Arnold said last year he was interviewed by the Secret Service over his tweets to Trump that challenged him to a fight and threatened, “Next time Kathy Griffin won’t be holding his fake head.”
You asked him to fight you, and responded with “next time Kathy Griffin won’t be holding his fake head”, which suggested you would kill him in your proposed fight @SecretService pic.twitter.com/Mn3A9iOSRG

Arnold claimed responsibility for helping fund a protest at World Series game 5 attended by President Trump in Washington, D.C. last week.
Diamond and Silk met with President Trump at the White House in July.
