And Just Like That, Frederick Douglass Satire Account Deleted


Parody accounts are infamous on Twitter. From the fake Chris Rock to even characters from your favorite television shows, these accounts provide humor and, well, that’s pretty much it. But apparently, someone didn’t want to let a new Frederick Douglass satire account live.

After Donald Trump’s ode to Douglass during his failed Black History Month speech, a Douglass parody account was created. But if you were Donald Trump, you probably couldn’t tell the difference between a parody account and a real one. And shortly after its creation, it was deleted.


Of course, people on Twitter were disappointed that the account was deleted:


With all the other parody accounts on Twitter, one has to wonder why this one was deleted. At first glance, I’m thinking the “real” part of the name could have been an issue. But who knows? In any event, maybe someone will start another one minus any reference to “real.”

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
