TRANSCRIPT

Another conservative is being thrown into Twitter prison.

Candace Owens, an African American Trump advocate with over 2 million followers, was booted off her account over the weekend for tweeting that Michigan residents should disobey Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's authoritarian lockdown orders that prompted a lawsuit yesterday — filed by her own state's legislature — claiming her Thursday extension violates Michigan law.

She wrote: "Apparently @GovWhitmer believes she is a duly elected dictator of a socialist country. The people of Michigan need to stand up to her. Open your businesses. Go to work. The police think she's crazy too. They are not going to arrest 10,000,000 people for going to work."

Owens is the founder of the #blexit movement, designed to help minorities' voters, especially blacks, exit from the Democratic party and influence the upcoming presidential election.

Michiganders have shown their displeasure in the past by holding protests on two separate occasions.

The first was held in April. Thousands gathered outside the state capitol demanding Whitmer loosen public restrictions.

The second protest last Friday made its way inside the capitol building, where chants saying "Let us in" echoed through the halls.

Candace's ban adds to a growing list of right-wing pundits being suspended from the social media platform.

The list also includes Catholic commentators like conservative author Milo Yiannopoulos, award-winning actor James Woods and former Fox contributor and Censored.TV founder Gavin McInnes.

Twitter is claiming the #blexit leader is violating its terms of service. However, Owens is claiming the platform is refusing to cite which terms she violated.

She is appealing the decision, leaving her at risk of permanent removal from the social media site.
