Hacker News user “Dan Leggetts” posted a screenshot of a message that he claims is a fake apology from Twitter to Dan LeGatto, founder of the company, which is the subject of this article.
In the message, Leggets says: “I’m a fucking idiot and I hate this crap.”
He then adds that he is “so proud” of Twitter for banning him.
The post has since been deleted, and the message has been pulled.
It was not immediately clear what Leggitts intended to say.
Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Twitter has previously blocked several other accounts for sharing the screenshot.
Twitter users also shared the tweet, with the user name “londonjoe” saying: “@dan_leggett @britain_wales @twitter @brian_dewitt !!!!!!!!!!!”
The account then tweeted a link to an archive of Leggetts apology, with a link pointing to a “history of posts that are no longer relevant”.
The original tweet has since also been removed.
Leggatts apology, which has since gone up on Twitter, was one of a number of anti-Semitic and racist posts on the platform.
In one post, LeGitts called the Black Lives Matter movement “a bunch of niggaz”, and compared the movement to “the KKK” and “the white nationalists”.
He also posted a number, including one in which he described the group as “white supremacists”.
Leggitteys anti-Semitism came to light after an article by journalist and political commentator James O’Brien published on Sunday.
In his piece, O’Briens alleged that Leggott had been banned from Twitter for being a member of a group called the “National Front of the United Kingdom” (NFUK).
O’Meara said in a tweet that LeGott had responded by writing: “My nazi buddies told me to go back to my own country where there’s no Nazis.
They are all jews, and if they see a nigger they will kick them out of the house.”
Twitter subsequently removed the account for violating its terms of service, and Leggits account has since become public again.
The original post has also been archived and re-posted.
Twitter removed Leggerts account, which Leggatts now says he “retweeted”.
Twitter has removed several accounts in the past for sharing anti-Muslim or anti-Jewish content.
Twitter deleted accounts for posting anti-Palestinian content in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2020, and also removed accounts in 2017 for posting offensive content including racist, misogynistic, and homophobic content.
LeGitteys account also has a history of making posts mocking Jewish people, but did not mention them in his original tweet.
Le Gatto did not respond to requests for comment from The Guardian.
Twitter declined to comment.
