Montel William recently tweeted that people who do a certain thing on their profile would be unfollowed and blocked by him. The problem is, as it became clear in the following thread, he didn’t actually know what the thing he that was upset about and banning people for actually was. He still doesn’t.

Lesbians block a Pride Parade to protest transgendered men being included.
The Government puts out a PSA urging parents to “put something important” in the back seat so that they won’t forget and leave their kids in the back seat.
We’re losing our minds. All we seem to have is hatred for the ‘other side,” whomever that might turn out to be.
