Shaun King, a well-known Black Lives Matter activist, has snuck back to Twitter in the wake of what seems to be just an hour-long deletion of his account.
The controversial race-hustler claims that he was now throwing a temper tantrum over the fact that the social media platform had been purchased by Tesla found Elon Musk, but took his profile down temporarily due to receiving "death threats."
King has not referenced or shown any evidence of these alleged death threats.
"I didn’t delete my account," claimed King in a response to comments from conservative Jack Posobiec. "You literally made that up."
"I was getting death threats and hack attempts from your buddies who stormed the Capitol and had to make it more secure," whine King. "I’m right here. And you are a a [sic] white supremacist."
"Receipts are right here Talcum X," the conservative went on to add, adding a telling screenshot of the account being offline.

This past Monday, it was discovered that King seemed to have taken down his Twitter account, despite it seemingly being temporarily, after he threw accusations at Musk of making this move to buy Twitter in order to advance "white power." Quite a few managed to capture screenshots of the Twitter account during the timeframe in which it was taken down.

"At its root, [Elon Musk] wanting to purchase Twitter is not about left vs right," King accused of Musk just scant hours before the account vanished into the ether. "It’s about white power."
"The man was raised in Apartheid by a white nationalist," he went on. "He’s upset that Twitter won’t allow white nationalists to target/harass people. That’s his definition of free speech."
"Elon Musk has openly called himself a ‘free speech absolutist’ and said that he wants to create a space where anything can be said about anyone," whined the activist. "That’s why white nationalists are giddy today. Here on Twitter and other platforms that I track daily. It’s dangerous."
This past Monday, Twitter put forth a statement announcing an agreement to be purchased by Musk a price of $54.20 per sahre in a deal that totaled out at $44 billion.
"Under the terms of the agreement, Twitter stockholders will receive $54.20in cash for each share of Twitter common stock that they own upon closing of the proposed transaction," stated the social media titan. "The purchase price represents a 38% premium to Twitter’s closing stock price on April 1, 2022, which was the last trading day before Mr. Musk disclosed his approximately 9% stake in Twitter."
