On Saturday, the wildly popular and funny @ComfortablySmug Twitter account was suspended for 12 hours after he called out fans of Ariana Grande, who famously licked a donut in 2015.

Twitter called his tweet, screenshot below,  a violation of the social media company’s “rules against abusive behavior”:

Keep in mind, what was tweeted was 100% accurate. She literally licked a donut as well as said, “I hate America” during the 2015 incident:

Police even investigated:

So why did Twitter feel the need to suspend Smug over this?

Does Grande really need protecting from an accurate tweet?

Compare what Smug wrote to how it was covered in 2015 when Grande was called a “terrorist” over it:

Anyway, Smug is back and his first tweet post-suspension was a link to a photo of Grande on Instagram with the same language in his original tweet:

And he gave a fake shout-out to President Trump for the “kind words” and “defending” him:

Hilarious, but Twitter really should explain how sarcasm gets you banned, especially when it’s accurate.
