White House Cyberbullies Conservative Teen, Calls Him a Liar
President Barack Obama has blocked thirteen-year-old Black critic C.J. Pearson on Twitter, according to a tweet by Pearson posted Wednesday.
Obama blocking Pearson comes two days after a White House petition was posted asking Obama to grant an interview to Pearson. Pearson has a tweet promoting the petition pinned to the top of his Twitter timeline.
Pearson posted a message to Obama on Twitter that said, “POTUS, I’m sorry I hurt your feelings.”
Frank Benenati, Assistant Press Secretary to President Obama posted on Twitter at 6:42 p.m. EDT denying anyone has been blocked from Obama’s Twitter account. Benenati’s tweet was subsequently retweeted by Press Secretary Josh Earnest.
