Twitter Suspends Account Behind Mob at Tucker Carlson’s Home, Account Publishing Addresses of Right-Wing Pundits Remains Active
Twitter suspended the “Smash Racism DC” account that was behind the mob showing up at the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday evening — but the account publishing the home addresses of right-wing media figures, including Carlson and his brother Buckley Carlson, remains active.
Twitter suspended SmashRacismDC after they were contacted by multiple journalists about the fact that they were repeatedly tweeting Carlson’s home address where he lives with his wife and four children.
However, an account called “Shut it Down DC” that published a link to the home addresses of Carlson, his brother, the Daily Caller’s Neil Patel, Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter remains active. The tweets containing the addresses have been removed, but the account has not.
On Wednesday, someone affiliated with DC Antifa told The Gateway Pundit that the protest at Carlson’s home was “just the beginning.” The addresses were published shortly after.
The group frequently posts violent messages such as “it takes a bullet to bash a fash.”

Approximately an hour before Carlson’s Fox News show aired on Wednesday evening, a leftist mob showed up at his home chanting threats such as, “Tucker Carlson we will fight, we know where you sleep at night!”
The leftists were also chanting, “No borders! No walls! No USA at all!”
Maybe do not promote racism and bigotry on a daily basis and we won't publicly shame you at your home. pic.twitter.com/lKv4DIVc3s

Carlson was at the Fox News studio when it happened, and his panicked wife hid in the pantry and called 9-1-1, thinking she was being subjected to a home invasion. According to the host, the screaming mob was banging on his oak door so aggressively that they broke it. Luckily, his children were not home at the time of the incident and police arrived within minutes.
No arrests were made.
