Keri Hilson Responds to Backlash Over Criticizing Trump’s Twitter Ban: ‘I Don’t Give a F*ck About [Him]’

Published: Monday 11th Jan 2021 by Rashad

‘Pretty Girl Rock’ performer Keri Hilson rocked headlines over the weekend when she criticized a number of social media outlets’ decision to ban President Donald Trump from their respective platforms after he reportedly incited the recent insurrection executed by a mob of his supporters.

The GRAMMY nominee took to social media to suggest his digital silencing was ‘dangerous’ and an infringement of his rights to free speech – a notion that set off a fiery backlash.

As her comments fueled debate among her followers and social media users at large, Hilson chimed in to further explain her stance with hopes of offering clarity.

Did she succeed? Look inside and tell us:

    She’s right though.

    • Danny Bey January 12, 2021

      She’s not. She’s the dumb one. The social media ban IS about Trump. For her to say “TaKe HiM oUt Of iT” is stupid bc this is arguably because Trump has been reckless and inciting violence using social media so this is an isolated situation. She tryna make sh*t political trying to sound “woke” But she sounds dumb. You’d think she’d learn after not shutting up about Beyoncé. Whole dummy

        No, you’re stupid. Because Trump isn’t the only one getting banned. Maybe learn how to read articles.

      • Danny Bey January 12, 2021

        Ya mommas a dummy for not spitting you out. No one said he was the only but the reasoning for Trump being banned is bc of TRUMP and aint got sh*t to do w “FrEeDoM oF sPeEcH”. Suck my pu$$y for a porkchop heaux

      • Lanafan1 January 12, 2021

        It don’t matter. She saw the spotlight and took it. It wasn’t just about Trump.

    Trump: *gets banned from Twitter*
    Twitter: woohoo!! Trump is banned from Twitter
    Keri: Take Trump out of it so I can make this about me and my friends instead

    Lmao, Tf is she talking about?? Every private platform has terms and agreements that you agree to when you make an account. Someone please tell her that Twitter is not a constitutional right, and that she had no business inserting herself into a conversation and then telling everyone to ignore the topic that THEY were talking about, all so she could share her ignorant views about something no one cared about.

      I’ve yet to read such a well thought out comment on here. Certainly beats the usual juvenile and xenophobic rubbish I usually see on here.
      I agree with you, thanks stranger.

      If that’s the case, then why weren’t any Democrats banned after doing the same during the riots.

    Keri, you might as well start singing “damaged” by Danity Kane, or “Damage” by Mya, because Thee DAMAGE is done. Good luck with that SoundCloud mixtape you’re working on.

  4. Carlitos January 12, 2021

    Racist and xenophobic idiots, JUST LIKE TRUMP, get banned and suspended all the time from these platforms. I’m not understanding wtf she’s talking about…

  5. cocobutta January 12, 2021

    If you don’t like the terms and conditions make your own platform.

    the first amendment is about protecting freedom of speech from GOVERNMENT censorship.

    twitter != government.

    it’s as simple as that.

  7. IJS January 12, 2021

    She doesn’t have a real understanding of what free speech and censorship are under the US Constitution. She seems to lack knowledge on a lot of issues that she chooses to speak out on. A few months ago she was blaming 5g cell service for the c**********. She obviously is no scholar and needs to stop getting her information from blogs and Facebook posts.

      A few months ago she was blaming 5g cell service for c******.

    she’s right. the girls are just ignorant + petty

  9. Happy+n+Rich January 12, 2021

    Keri is 100% right. Due to Big Tech’s virtual monopoly on the media, this is a major infringement on the president’s 1st A rights.

    Folks seem to love monarchy/socialism/dictatorship/fascism until the monarch/dictator turns on them.

    Freedom of speech isn’t always free, nor is it always pretty.

    There are a lot of things Zuckerberg never undertook to ban. Targeting the president and certain conservatives is personal and unconstitutional. There is an anti-trust issue here that needs to be addressed.

    She said to take Trump out, but then she reinserted him in her argument and used fear to say “If the leader of the free world can be removed…” She made no distinguishment between what Trump did and what every normal person does when expressing an opinion in social media.
