He often crosses the line when it comes to his hateful comments on the state of affairs, and matters of homosexuality.

In wake of the recent shooting at a school in Texas, he posted a tweet stating that it is cowardly to pull out a gun when confronted. He wrote, “‘I have a gun on me, you wouldn’t try to fight me,’ let me stop you there, I don’t try to fight anyone,” Strickland said. “If you run your mouth I give you an option to be a man and step up….If your go to is ‘grab my gun’ you’re a little bitch and the problem with the world. Pussy!!!”

He added, “I just gotta say countries that don’t have gun ownership [as] a human right really are pathetic,” Strickland said. “‘Germany hasn’t had a mass shooting’, ‘England doesn’t have mass shooting’, blah blah you also don’t have fucking men either so enjoy it you nutless trannies. That is all goodbye.”

The Twitter team had seen enough of these tirades and decided to act on it by suspending Sean Strickland’s account.
