Twitter Wars

Julian Assange doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of ‘censorship’

In the wake of “right wing provocateur” and “free speech advocate” Milo Yiannopoulos‘s loss of his book deal and subsequent resignation from his editor position at Breitbart News, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange took to Twitter to condemn what he called a campaign  of “censorship” celebrated by liberals.

“US ‘liberals’ today celebrate the censorship of right-wing UK provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos over teen sex quote,” Assange tweeted, linking to Yiannopoulos’s Facebook apology for past comments where he seemed to suggest that relationships between adults and children can sometimes be beneficial.

Although there was a mixed response, a majority of Twitter users slammed Assange’s tweet, some for his rather vague reference to Milo’s comments as “teen sex,” and others pointing out that “censorship” and private entities declining to do business with someone who could hurt their brand are two different things.

But the most pointed response came from Kevin Broom, who uses the Twitter handle @Broom_Kevin:
