Infamous former Myspace queen and reality TV star Tila Tequila was suspended on Monday from Twitter due to several occurrences of hate speech. Tequila has used the social media platform to title herself as the “Alt-reich queen! Literally Hitler!” and her ban does not come as a surprise to those following her social media timeline of pejorative, anti-Semitic comments.

Over the weekend, the Singapore-born, Vietnamese star posted a photo alongside two men, ostentatiously showing off her best Nazi-styled salute. The photo, captioned “Seig heil!” was shot at a mini convention for the alt-right-leaning National Policy Institute in Washington, D.C. 

In the past, Tequila has expressed adoration for Adolf Hitler by praising him and Nazism numerous times on her social media accounts. She’s even gone so far to declare Hitler as her “boo,” stating that she wished she could use necromancy to bring him back to life. 

Tequila has been placed in social media shadows before, with Facebook pursuing a 30-day ban after she posted a digitally altered image of her standing proudly in front of Auschwitz, sporting a swastika armband in 2013. 

Since the peak of her celebrity status with the MTV dating show A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, the Houston-raised celebrity has kept up with her notorious social media presence. One that’s been diminished to platform bans and suspensions.
