Twitter users revolt against depraved Adam Lanza parody account

Yesterday afternoon, a sicko created a Twitter account with the handle @blastinkids. The person running the account has posted 20 despicable messages. Here’s a vile sample:

That’s all we can stomach.

Social media users from all parts of the political spectrum are calling Twitter’s attention to the malicious abuser:

Hurry up, Twitter.

    They won’t ban this account, but banned mine for as far as I can tell, calling O’Brien an idiot…

    • 5n4k33y35

      They will ban it.

    I hope they do ban it, but so far all I’ve seen banned are people who are “on the wrong side of the political fence.” Of course, Westboro should be blocked also, but they just keep getting richer and richer and more infamous.

    • Michelle Frost

      Anonymous shut WBC AND this creep down. :)

    Im not a genius at this twitter thing, but his list of followers is a list of people who should be blocked from twitter, until you scroll down to CHRIS CHRISTIE. ??

    • Nicole

      Chris Christie isn’t following him, he is following Chris Christie.

      • cantbelieve

        Ya, sorry like i said, not that great at twitter.

  • George B

    Don’t ban it, out the individual’s real identity. Put the person on the news. Allow his friends and family to deal with him.

    • Rob M

      where is anonymous when you need them?

      • Michelle Frost

        They got him. Posted all of his personal info online, including pedo posts. :)

    • http://twitter.com/who_me_too RadicalRebelWhoMeToo

      ~_^ Anon outed him. posted all his info. this guy has kids. Sick.

      • fo0hzy

        A simple Google search confirms this. I’m not posting the link, though.

      • WyrdestGeek

        But it appears they got the wrong “man” (71 yr old woman).

        Like *ouch* and stuff. Do you think Anonymous will bother to say “mea culpa”? File under the-problem-with-vigilante-justice …

        • http://twitter.com/who_me_too RadicalRebelWhoMeToo

          I just made a comment. I didn’t “OUT” him. Like *ouch* and stuff.

          • WyrdestGeek

            Hey, sorry if I offended you. Ok, you didn’t “out” him. But Anonymous did. And, it seems, they got it wrong. I just think that’s an important piece of information.

    • pcolabucfan

      I agree

  • George B

    Don’t ban it, out the individual’s real identity. Put the person on the news. Allow his friends and family to deal with him.

  • Ender Wiggin

    Yeah I got blocked once for “too many responses” or some such nonsense. This is fine though. What I would rather do is find this little freak and have a nice little talk with him

    • Ntr

      You might’ve hit the api limit or whatever it’s called on Twitter. I think they have an automated limit on the amount of @’s you can have an hour and in short spans of time.

  • Jose Battaglia

    Interesting how we don’t like what someone writes, but instead of just ignoring it (and NOT reading it) we demand they be silenced. That’s not the America I fought for.

    @BlastinKids was a sick account and the tweets were vile; but it’s a slippery slope when we start reporting people for SPAM when they are just assholes.

    They have the Constitutional right to be assholes; and you have the right to be offended. Let’s hope those of you who called for his/her banning never offend anyone.

    • Agent_Zeero

      This is not a 1st Amendment issue. The goobermint does not run Twitter. Twitter is free to decide what they will or will not tolerate. Congress is not planning to make a law defining what can or cannot be written on Twitter

    • NachoCheese (D)

      The first Amendment is of no relevance in this. Twitter is a private company that provides a service. You have no Constitutional right to a Twitter account. It is entirely up to Twitter (and likely feedback from their users plays an important factor in their decision making) as to whether that account will be banned or not.

    • BeyondPolls

      I agree. The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference.

    • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

      so…in your world twitter is a government?

    • Jeff Coil

      This isnt a free speech issue. Twitter is a private company, and this is a violation of its user guidlines. This kind of sick crap damages the company brand, and therefore they have the right to remove it. Only the government can censor.

    The disgusting things liberals resort to on Twitter.

  • Danny Wheeler

    Whoever made this account is a sick bastard!

  • Guest

    THAT is despicable, and I’m in the gulag!

  • Joe W.

    Just another civil liberal making his “point”….

  • 1SkepticalChick

    3…2…1..poof!

  • Zanshi

    That account has been banned from Twitter.

  • Karen Waltermire

    There are facebook pages as well, and NO they don’t get banned…you just get feedback saying they don’t see a violation, but I got a violation for reposting a picture from a news article of coptic Christians that were killed …yep probably sicko liberals

  • jbgoldcanyon

    This is how low our country has sunk. Pathetic!

  • Hildabeast-Weiner2016

    To the individual who exposed this vile mf’er, THANK YOU!

  • vcferlita

    Wow, Anon outed him. Listed all his personal info online.
