As Twitchy told you last night, Oscar winner Gary Oldman had the nerve — the nerve! — to thank America in his acceptance speech. He also paid tribute to Winston Churchill, the man he portrayed in “The Darkest Hour.”
Well, Ryan John Butcher, blue-checked journo for the UK’s Independent, had a big problem with that.
I'm glad to see this guy was sufficiently ashamed of this take that he has now made his account private https://t.co/lDJUkr2b2e

His account may be private, but despite his best efforts, Butcher’s hot take is still very much available to the public:

What’s wrong, Ryan? Own that sh*t! Own it!
Yes, how dare he pay tribute to the man who stared down fascism when real heroes like [checks notes] the most successful people in Hollywood should have been praised. pic.twitter.com/d40gvW3ELj

Bam. Nailed it. No wonder Butcher fled — the truth hurts way too much.

A journalist whose tweets a protected lol

A journalist, according to his bio.
But according to his twitter account, a journalist who doesn't want you to read what he's written.

Wow, that's interesting. @ryanjohnbutcher is a "journalist" who has protected his Twitter account.
Am I misunderstanding the whole point of Twitter and journalism? Serious question, cause I'm not a journalist – at least I know that much.

Butcher’s not a journalist either, evidently. Not a serious one, anyway.
The level of ignorance is beyond measure now.

Willful ignorance, to boot. You know, Ryan, you can do something about that:

On the other hand:
I think Ryan is more of a Chamberlain man
