Twitter is at it again, this time suspending Andy Ngo, a writer/editor for The Post Millennial, over tweets about trans people. Ngo was responding to Chelsea Clinton who posted a memorial to trans people who have been murdered in the United States.
Since 2013, more than 150 trans people have been murdered in the U.S., the majority Black transgender women. On #TDoR2019, we remember and honor the lives lost, hold their loved ones in our hearts and must commit to doing all we can to end this epidemic of violence and hate. https://t.co/c1pYPPmpxD

Ngo pointed out that the United States is actually one of the safest countries in the world for trans people.
The suspension lasted twelve hours and Twitter said the tweet was hate speech.
Ngo, who is gay, was involved in an altercation with ANTIFA earlier this year, making headlines when the group attacked him in Portland, Oregon.
