R&B singer Keri Hilson became the number one trending topic in the world today after she came out publicly to defend Donald Trump and his freedom of speech, MTO News has learned.
Keri took to Twitter to defend the allegedly racist soon-to-be ex-president and told her fans it was “dangerous” to ban Donald Trump from Twitter.
She explained, “imagine other leaders or popular figures not being able to voice their opinion if it opposes the majority of world leaders.”

She further claimed, “Our freedom of speech (is) being taken from us.”
She added, “If the leader of the free world can vibe removed (from Twitter), imagine that same right of civilians.”
As you can imagine, folks on social media are dragging the life out of Keri Hilson. Here is just a sample of the tweets:
Trump, 74, had his Twitter account permanently deleted on Friday, Jan. 8, 2021, after Twitter officials believed that the president incited the violence and insurrection at the U.S. Capitol with his persistently inflammatory rhetoric. The founders of the social media app also decided that the commander-in-chief was using the platform to provoke his mammoth followership to commit similar acts in the near future.
Hilson, however, contends that the country could be sliding on the slippery slope of leaving it to a small group of people to determine who has the right to express themselves over the social media airwaves.
To be fair, Twitter is a private company and pretty much do whatever it wants with its platform. It also instituted a policy that forbids inciting violence that pre-dates the deadly sedition in the nation’s Capital on Weds., Jan. 6, that left five fatalities in its wake.
Urbanites and others apparently don’t share Hilson’s sentiments and ravaged the singer on Twitter. Above is a small sampling of the outrage.
