Apparently, Chuck Modi of Deadspin doesn’t think Twitter should call Andy Ngô a journalist. Weird coming from someone who writes for a sports site that was embarrassed by Ted Cruz SO badly a couple of years ago that people still joke about the good senator from Texas owning them.
Oh, and what’s even worse is Twitter listened.
We can’t get Glenn Youngkin (the GOP candidate for governor in VA) verified BUT this twerp from Deadspin can get Twitter to change a headline?
They just suck.
Pls stop calling Andy Ngo a “journalist”.
Thank you. pic.twitter.com/2cttoQTw0n

They can’t have Andy protected by the first now can they?
My detractors do this because they want to take away the one thing that all decent people agree on: press freedom is sacred. Who the far-left defines as "press" are those who write what they approve of. Anyone else is a "provocateur" deserving of intimidation & violence. https://t.co/nLnT6IbCj8

Some woke twerp complained to Twitter about its curated news feature describing Andy Ngo as a journalist, so Twitter dutifully complied and removed that description. pic.twitter.com/vvaXD2hPIn

Luckily, Chuck is getting a teensy bit of pushback over this, and by teensy we mean a sh*tload.
Kiss a good man’s ass and bark at the hole.
You’re not the arbiter of journalists.

Too often, happenings in the real world seem to be drawn directly from dystopian fiction.

So you condone his attempted murder. Got it.

Andy is a journalist who does important work.
You're a broken tool who works for Deadspin.
You might want to sit this one out, champ.

We’re going to bet Cruz is not happy with the sports blog he owns targeting an Asian journalist.
