James O’Keefe RESPONDS to TWITTER ACCOUNT SUSPENSION Following BOMBSHELL CNN TAPES: Says He Plans to SUE THE PLATFORM FOR ‘DEFAMATORY STATEMENTS’

  • Twitter permanently suspended James O’Keefe’s personal account on the platform today, following a series of bombshell undercover videos of a CNN employee. 

  • The tech giant dealt a blow to the First Amendment and did the unthinkable by removing the account saying, You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,” and “You can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts.”

  • O’KEEFE’S STATEMENT: “I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts.’ This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay. Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me. The complaint will be filed Monday.”

  • This comes only months after Twitter suspended the accounts of both Project Veritas and Project Veritas Action. This also comes at a time when O’Keefe’s account was on the verge of reaching 1,000,000 followers. 

[WESTCHESTER N.Y. – Apr. 15, 2021] Project Veritas Founder and CEO James O’Keefe issued a statement today, following the suspension of his personal Twitter account by the big tech giant. 

“I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts.’ This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay. Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me. The complaint will be filed Monday.”

A Twitter spokesperson confirmed O’Keefe has been permanently banned “for violating the Twitter Rules on platform manipulation and spam.”

A Twitter spokesperson pointed us to a section in the company’s rules which state: “You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,” and “you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts.”

These defamatory statements cannot be allowed to continue. We must take a stand. The time is now. Be Brave. Do Something.
