Roger Stone Tweets Obscenities, Insults At CNN Anchors: Advises “Severe Punishment”
02 November, 2017, 00:34
Stone's account was taken offline on Saturday night following a series of profane attack tweets he put out on Friday focused on CNN reporters Don Lemon and Jake Tapper. Recode also reported that Stone's suspension could be permanent.
Two of the tweets against Lemon included homophobic dog-whistles, including one making an obscene reference to oral sex and another calling the anchor an "arrogant partyboi".
To Stone, what he said to earn suspension is no different from average trolling on the platform.
"I have retained one of the best telecommunications lawyers in the country and will be bringing a legal action against Twitter over the suspension of my account", he told TheWrap.
Stone, who helped Trump win the election, told Politico on Sunday he had made a decision to bring legal action against Twitter, although it was unclear what that action would be.

Earlier this year, Twitter addressed complaints that President Donald Trump had violated the service's rules with threatening tweets.
"This is a odd way to do business and part and parcel of the systematic effort by the tech left to censor and silence conservative voices", Stone told Politico in a Sunday e-mail.
One factor in this case may have been that Stone repeatedly targeted Lemon using his Twitter handle, so that the harassment would show up in Lemon's notifications. But he's been close to Trump since at least 2000, when Trump first toyed with the idea of running for President. Stone was briefly an adviser to the Trump campaign, and has been personally tied to activities that come under Mueller's purview, including the hack of the Democratic National Committee. Stone has a tattoo of Richard Nixon's face on his back, and Stone has frequently embraced his own reputation as a political dirty trickster.
