VERIFIED TWITTER JOURNALIST THREATENS TO CONTACT MAN’S EMPLOYER BECAUSE HE DID THE ‘OK’ HAND SIGN
“I wonder what their employers would think”
Finnish Twitter user Iisak Selin responded to a tweet by journalist David MacDougall with a photo of himself using the hand gesture.
MacDougall responded by tweeting, “Hi Iisak – Do you have a job? I wonder what your employers think of you making a sign that has been co-opted by white supremacists and racists? Would be interesting to find out. Or maybe a future employer is interested…”
But MacDougall wasn’t finished.
He then responded to another individual who posted a photo of himself doing the OK hand sign with the same threat.
“I don’t know if these people have jobs, but I wonder what their employers would think about them making signs that are closely associated with & used by white supremacists and racists?” asked MacDougall.
That’s funny, because I wonder when MacDougall and his ilk will stop abusing their platforms to threaten to doxx people simply because they don’t like their politics and do some actual journalism.
Respondents on Twitter soon put MacDougall in his place.
What do your employers think about you trying to intimidate people on Twitter? Well it’s probably fine to them, all people in the media are snakes 👌🏻
