ICYMI earlier this week, the Adidas UK Twitter account was under fire after a social-media promotion was hijacked by racists and anti-Semites, resulting in the creation of fake Arsenal jerseys with names on the back such as “@DieAllN******” and “@GasAllJewss.”

Addidas UK then shared the racist jerseys with all of their followers, resulting in tweets like this:

Twitter then stepped in to take action. Action which included the locking of accounts that criticized Adidas UK for the tweet:

Let’s give Twitter the benefit of the doubt (although they haven’t earned it) and say the reason they locked @ReganBattalion was to stop the dissemination of the photos. But, why did Twitter let accounts with names like @DieAllN****** and @GasAllJewss to exist in the first place?

Another fail.
