SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – It’s Thanksgiving week and most people have started planning their traditional dinner menu including their choice of wine, champagne or liquor.
For many, tequila is their choice of liquor. They can’t do without it for their margarita, tequila sunrise or long island iced tea.
So it is no surpise that they were extremely upset to wake up this morning to find that the Twitter account of their favorite liquor has been suspended.
The complaints line of the San Francisco-based social media portal was overwhelmed with angry tequila lovers.
Twitter staff spent most of the day today fielding calls and explaining to their irate customers that the Twitter account that was suspended was for a different Tequila. Tina Tequila, that is.
The Twitter account of Tequila, reality TV-turned social media star, was suspended following a string of neo-Nazi tweets that drew increased attention over the weekend, when she attended a conference of “alt-right” white nationalists in Washington, D.C.
At the conference, the 35-year-old Vietnamese-American model posed for a photo in which she and two other individuals performed the Nazi salute. She shared it on Twitter, writing the caption, “Seig [sic] heil!”
So relax, real Tequila (the liquor) fans, you’re good to go. Tweet and Re-Tweet away!
