Left-wing Hollywood celebrities are expressing their collective love of Big Brother after Twitter announced that it has permanently banned President Donald Trump.

As Breitbart News reported, Twitter kicked the president off its platform late Friday. “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” said Twitter in a statement.

Twitter cited two specific tweets that the president posted on Friday, claiming that they violate the company’s “Glorification of Violence” policy, though neither of those tweets remotely encourages violence or “glorifies” it.

In one of the tweets, the president states that he will not attend Joe Biden’s inauguration. In the other, the president wrote that the 75 million people who voted for him “will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”

Twitter concluded that those tweets “are likely to inspire” other acts similar to the storming of the Capitol on Wednesday.

Hollywood stars — some of whom have actually used Twitter to encourage violence, without penalty — rejoiced at the announcement, offering snarky comments and unalloyed praise for the Silicon Valley tech giant. In an ominous tweet, actress Amber Tamblyn suggested that banning Trump isn’t enough. “We need to go further,” she said.

Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen, who has been one of Hollywood’s biggest advocates for more tech censorship, declared victory: “We did it!”

Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who was one of Hollywood’s biggest supporters of Joe Biden, tweeted: “What the fuck took you so long @jack?”
