Fox and Friends host Pete Hegseth said he was banned from Twitter Saturday after he shared an anti-American manifesto said to have been written by Pensacola shooter Mohammed Alshamrani.
The TV journalist, 39, posted screenshots Sunday which showed his tweet, calling the actions of the gunman ‘Islamist terror’, was ‘no longer available’. He followed up with a picture of his appeal regarding the decision.
Saudi military student Alshamrani, 21, killed three people and injured 12 when he opened fire at Navy Station Pensacola on Friday.
Hegseth shared a grab from the shooter’s Twitter account Saturday, writing: ‘Here’s the (now blocked) tweet from Saudi Islamist Mohammed Alshamrani, who murder 3 brave Americans in Florida.
‘The coward posted it just hours before his terrorist attack. This is Islamist terror. No reason to ever mince words. Saudi Arabia must be held to account.’
Alshamrani’s social media, which was taken down subsequent to the attack, appeared to show a variety of anti-Israel postings and a quote from deceased al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
