“He sucks lol,” the drawing on a yellow legal pad read.
“Dear Muslims => Why am I Drawing Muhammad? Because go Screw Yourselves,” the message read.
“Hahahahahahaha,” Crowder responded.
Earlier this year, Twitter warned conservative author Jamie Glazov that posts about his book, “Jihadist Psychopath,” violated the law in Pakistan.
explained the situation on The Glazov Gang, an online talk show.
“Ladies and gentlemen, a very interesting world we’re entering now. Twitter has recently warned me that a post on my new book, ‘Jihadist Psychopath: How He Is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Us,’ is in violation of a section of Pakistan’s penal code connected to Islamic blasphemy law,” Glazov said.
“Now Twitter told me it has not taken any action, for now. Phew,” he said. “They’re only writing to inform me, for now.”
