Popular Sikh YouTuber Annand ‘Bunty King’ Virk was reportedly banned from Twitter following an argument with notorious “anti-racism strategist” Tariq Nasheed.
As Heat Street reports, Nasheed is “a failed rap artist formerly known as ‘King Flex'” who “spends most of his days arguing with people on Twitter and accusing anyone who disagrees with him of being a ‘white supremacist,’ even those who aren’t white.”
Such was the case with Bunty King, who took issue with Nasheed’s suggestion that “they” made one of Bill Cosby’s rape accusers “who could pass for white, wear a huge Afro.”
Nasheed and Bunty King apparently got into a heated exchange over the matter, which resulted in the former calling the latter a “Hapa,” a derogatory term meaning “half breed” that Heat Street states Nasheed is fond of calling those who disagree with him.
Nasheed also accused Bunty King of attempting to appease “white supremacists” by “[doubling] down on anti black BS.”
Nasheed proceeded to embed a video from Bunty King in which the YouTuber slammed people like Nasheed for claiming “white people invented racism.”

At this, Heat Street reports that Nasheed’s followers began mass reporting Bunty King, resulting in the latter’s Twitter account being suspended.
Bunty King subsequently made a YouTube video confirming he had been banned as a result of his exchange with Tariq Nasheed.
“Tariq Nasheed is a failed rapper and pick-up artist that spreads hate to non-poc and poc alike if they do not comply with his ethnic supremacy,” the caption for Bunty King’s video reads.
“He is the black Richard Spencer, if Richard Spencer were to develop the inability to speak correctly.”
“After several altercations with Nasheed on Twitter, in which I called him out for his racist and divisive agenda, he got his followers to report me and suspend me from Twitter.”
“A clear indication of his incapability to confront my superior and inclusive ideology head on. We cannot take this on our backs, we must stand up for what is right and not allow him to do this to anyone else on the platform,” the caption continues.
“People must know of his hypocrisy and his evil agenda built around his own gain to the detriment of colored people.”

Twitter needs to work on its reporting system if that is why King Bunty's account was suspended. If it was a human decision, even worse.

Twitter is becoming a place where you question the left and get kicked for the inconvenience
