@POTUS is on Twitter, and he wants nothing to do with "meninists."
According to an image tweeted out by the account @MeninistTweet, it has been blocked from following the president's official Twitter. The "Meninist" account bills itself as a parody but provides the type of commentary one might expect from men's rights activists like sexist jokes and constant criticisms of women. They also sell "meninist" T-shirts and make fun of women who are angry about that.
Whether or not the account is actually a parody, Obama, it seems, is not into it.
If Obama has blocked the @MeninistTweet account, it means that they cannot follow him or see any of his tweets.
The White House did not immediately respond to requests for confirmation of the block.
Let it be known: POTUS supports the notion that "all men are created equal," but that doesn't mean he's down with "men's rights."
This article has been updated throughout to reflect that the White House has yet to confirm to HuffPost that the account was in fact blocked.
