Twitter Just Suspended Candace Owens for a Really Dumb Reason

Conservative commentator Candace Owens was suspended from Twitter after posting a tweet criticizing Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) and encouraging Michiganders to flout the governor's stay-at-home order, one of the strictest in the nation. Despite protests throughout the state, Gov. Whitmer signed an executive order on Thursday extending business closures through May 28.  

Twitter users came to the commentator's defense, assailing the social media giant for their brazen double standards and censorship of conservatives during the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic.  

Outraged by the silencing of political speech, Twitter users are calling on the government to end the censorship. 

Twitter user @robbystarbuck said he spoke to Twitter about Owens' suspension. Twitter confirmed Owens was indeed suspended for her tweet about the Michigan stay-at-home order and said they would reinstate Owens' account only if she agreed to delete her tweet. 

The Twitter hashtag #freecandace was trending on Saturday.
