Anthony Scaramucci Says Twitter Suspended Him For Calling Trump ‘The Fattest President’

The company confirmed the former White House communications director was temporarily locked out of his account for violating its abusive behavior policy.

One day after Donald Trump fat-shamed a person at his rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, the former and very temporary White House communications director said Twitter suspended him for commenting on it.

Anthony Scaramucci said he was temporarily locked out of his account on Friday after he posted a tweet Thursday night mocking Trump, in which he called him “the fattest President.”

The tweet is still up on the website, but Scaramucci told Axios reporter Jonathan Swan he can’t access his account and suspects his tweet is what led to the temporary ban.

Twitter confirmed the temporary suspension to the New York Post:

“The user is temporarily locked out of their account for violating our abusive behavior policy,” a rep told the paper. “If a tweet was found to be in violation of our rules, and has yet to be deleted by the person who Tweeted it, we will hide it behind a notice. The account will remain locked until the Tweet is removed.”

But Swan said Scaramucci may be wrong about what tweet caused the temporary ban since the tweet remains without any notice.
