ZOA Urges Twitter to Remove White Supremacist and Holocaust Denier Nick Fuentes
News Press Release
October 31, 2019

The Zionist Organization of America urges Twitter to take immediate action against Nick Fuentes, an anti-Semite and White Supremacist who openly denies the Holocaust and routinely spreads hate-filled and bigoted speech, and remove his verified account from the social media platform.

It is long overdue that Twitter, in addition to Facebook, YouTube and other social media platforms, consider their role in perpetuating violent and extremist hate-speech, anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial, and other forms of bigotry.

Just yesterday, Nick Fuentes used an analogy of Cookie Monster baking batches of cookies to attempt to deny the horrific murder of 6 million innocent Jews during the Holocaust, telling his podcast audience that the number “just doesn’t make sense” to him.

This open and unashamed denial of the facts of the Holocaust is atrocious and disgusting. But what’s more puzzling, is Twitter’s willingness to lend Fuentes, and others like him, a platform for prejudice, hatred, and lies.

It is long overdue that Twitter, in addition to Facebook, YouTube and other social media platforms, consider their role in perpetuating violent and extremist hate-speech, anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial, and other forms of bigotry.

ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said, “It is absolutely astounding and inexplicable that the most powerful companies in the world have no problem ignoring this pure evil, let alone offering even more exposure than average, as Twitter did by verifying Fuentes’ account.”

“I urge Twitter to stop cooperating with Holocaust deniers, anti-Semites, white Supremacists and racists, and to prevent them from having a platform to further spread their vile hate-filled speech.”
