The initial release of Twitter’s files on speech suppression left many wondering what other wrongs the social media platform may have committed, including famed Covington kid Nicholas Sandmann who suggested potential complicity in endangering his life.
As the public awaits the release of the second round of information regarding Twitter’s collusion with government officials and corporate media to suppress certain stories, questions abound as to what other files might have been uncovered by the social media platform’s new owner Elon Musk.
In 2019, then-Covington Catholic High School student Sandmann had his reputation smeared by the media when he was filmed smiling while wearing a Make America Great Again hat after attending the March for Life and being confronted by Native American elder Nathan Phillips. His defamation lawsuit ended in a settlement, but that didn’t change the fact that after the incident his life had been allegedly threatened.
Early Sunday morning, Sandmann took to Twitter to ask Musk if any files had been uncovered pertaining to the permissibility of those threats under the watch of the former head of legal Vijaya Gadde when those accounts would typically be suspended for violating terms of service. Captioning a post from May 27, 2020, he wrote, “As I’m watching this all play out, I’m wondering if @elonmusk has any hidden twitter files relating to what went on here. Let’s be clear: under the watch of @vijaya they allowed these illegal threats when I was 16 years old.”
