Far-Right Personality Laura Loomer, known for spreading hoaxes and feeding false conspiracy theories, was interrupted from Twitter on Wednesday. Suspension comes after Loomer tweeted a series of anti-Muslim lies about Ilhan Omar, a Somali refugee who is one of two Muslim women elected to Congress.
A spokesman for Twitter confirmed that the suspension was permanent but could be appealed. Loomer had more than a quarter of a million followers on the platform.
In a video published on YouTube, Loomer said she was “suspended to tell the truth” in her tweet about Omar. The tweet baseless and false implied Omar is against Jewish people and women but supports female genital mutilation and “sharia”. Loomer said she was told that she violates Twitter’s hateful behavior policy . In the video, she asked Donald Trump to “do something” and said she plans to sue the social media company.

Famously, she also felt that she was supervised by the FBI because she allegedly saw a Wi-Fi network called “FBI Surveillance Van”, a common joke.

Medium also deleted the account in February after sprung on right-hand commentators using its website. Loomer stays on YouTube, Patreon, Facebook and Instagram.
