Laurence Fox mocks supposed ‘culture wake-up’ in UK in 2021

Laurence Fox received a temporary ban from Twitter over the weekend after he changed his profile picture to a swastika created from four LGBTQ+ pride flags.

The former actor, 44, found his account temporarily locked after Twitter found the image violated its rules on abusive profile information and its rules against posting hateful images.

Laurence got back to posting on Monday morning – sharing a warning from Twitter with his 310,400 followers and discussing the possibility of “rookies” running into trouble because of a newly altered image of a flag.

The aspiring politician sparked outrage on the social media platform when he changed his profile picture to a swastika composed of various pride flags just days after a gunman killed two people during the Oslo Pride festival.

“Oh blessing and holiest month!” Laurence captioned her profile photo update on Sunday, seemingly referring to Pride Month that runs throughout June.

“Not quite sure why Laurence Fox was allowed to have the swastika as her profile picture,” host Matthew Stadlen tweeted before the Declaration of Party founder was suspended from the site, with many other add to their disgust and commit to reporting pictures.

Upon returning to Twitter on Monday morning, Laurence stated certain flags should not be criticized on the social networking site.

You can openly call [Union Jack flag] a symbol of sectarianism and totalitarianism on Tw*tter. You can’t criticize holy flags [LGBTQ+ pride flags]”, the father-of-two captioned a screenshot of his warning email from Twitter.

In an email to the former actor, Twitter told Laurence how updating his profile picture broke their rules and that his account was locked.

To regain his posting privileges and unlock his account, the politician wants to be asked to “remove the offending content” [Twitter’s] rule” – which he did.

Martin Daubney – deputy leader of the Reclaim party – responded to Laurence’s tweet with an image of the Union Jack flag reconstructed to form the swastika symbol.

“So is this even worth banning?” Martin asked his friend, who quoted the reply on the tweet, and added: “Wait for the rookies to have a meltdown on this.”

Following Laurence’s now-deleted profile photo update on Sunday, the volunteer-led Anti-Semitism Charity Campaign called on the activist to controversially use the swastika to give out political views.

They wrote on Twitter about the image: “Showing pride flags in a swastika is not as sharp a statement as you might think.

“Can express opinions without hatred, and without offending those murdered by the Nazis, including Jews and LGBT people.”

The Mirror has reached out to Laurence’s representatives and Twitter for further comment on the suspension.
