Twitter temporarily locked out Human Events editor Jack Posobiec for accusing Disney of being a hotbed of “groomers.”
“Get it before it’s banned,” Posobiec wrote on Twitter on April 6, sharing an image of a “Boycott Groomers” T-shirt featuring the Disney logo.
Twitter then froze Posobiec’s account on Sunday, saying he had violated its policy on “hateful conduct.”
“You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease,” Twitter told Posobiec.
This comes shortly after Posobiec published screenshots from Disney’s internal messaging board showing numerous employees voicing their support for Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R-Fla.) Parental Rights in Education bill that bans schools from teaching sexual identity and gender topics to K-3rd grade children.
Here are a few. Sounds like workers just wanting to do their jobs. pic.twitter.com/XiUdASFE7X

Posobiec said in a statement to The Post Millennial that the move by Twitter is clear “retaliation” for leaking the screenshots undermining Disney’s corporate stance against the Florida bill.
“Elon Musk recently commented that corporations dictate policy on Twitter through ad dollars,” Posobiec said. “So it comes as no surprise Twitter will censor you for criticizing one of the largest media companies in the world.”
“This is clear retaliation for me leaking the internal employee forums at Disney showing many of their workers support the Florida anti-grooming bill,” he added.
Twitter lockouts usually last 12 hours but it’s unclear just how long Posobiec’s account will be frozen.
