Twitter Suspends Khamenei Account For Video Threatening Trump

1/15/2022

Twitter has permanently suspended one of Iranian leader Ali Khamenei’s accounts apparently for sharing an animation video depicting the killing of Donald Trump.

KhameneiSite, which was suspended is just one of the accounts controlled by Khamenei’s office. Iranian Twitter users have been urging the social media giant to suspend all his accounts for its violent and vitriolic content. Many say that if Donald Trump’s account can be suspended, Khamenei’s accounts should also be closed.

On January 13, Khamenei’s official website posted an animation video showing an all-terrain vehicle with an operator on board driving through a golf course and approaching a point from where its camera shows a man who looks like Trump playing golf. The operator targets the figure and a large gun on top of the vehicle aims at the target and the video ends.

The same video was reportedly shared on Twitter, with threats to avenge the killing of Qasem Soleimani, and then deleted, which could be the reason why @KhameneiSite was suspended.

Khamenei and other top Iranian officials have been threatening revenge against former US officials whom they blame for killing its chief military and intelligence operator in the Middle East in January 2020.

Last January, Twitter suspended another one of Khamenei’s accounts after it also published a threat against Trump.
