What the **ck internet? I read far more darker things and such, is the entire internet ran by SJW and safe-space snowflakes? Ban for a poem that threatens who? It is a POEM. It is not like he went out and hurt anyone other than the sensitive whiney weak minded SJWs or Safe-Space snowflakes feelings. Come on Twitter you used to be cool.  :(
