Following the decision by an appeals court upholding a ruling that President Donald Trump can’t block users from following him on Twitter, a similar lawsuit in New York made news. This time, it’s Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is likewise facing court over the same thing: blocking people on Twitter. Former New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind, a Democrat, is suing the congresswoman for blocking him on Twitter after, he says, his criticism of her referring to border detention facilities as “concentration camps.” The complaint states that the plaintiff, Hikind, “is a known and staunch advocate for Jewish causes and the State of Israel,” and “founder of Americans Against Anti-Semitism,” and that, “importantly, Mr. Hikind has criticized” AOC on Twitter many times, including “in response to AOC’s claims that the United States Government is running ‘concentration camps’ on the boarder[sic], similar to those in the Holocaust. “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has blocked me on Twitter yesterday apparently because my critique of her tweets and policies have been too stinging,” Hikind said on Tuesday. He also tweeted that “no one is above the law,” along with an animated gif encouraging others who have been blocked to get in touch with him. her current pinned Tweet as one example. With a new lawsuit, the issue isn’t dead yet, despite the appeals court’s ruling. Watch the clips above, courtesy of Fox News Channel.
