White nationalist Nick Fuentes—the self-proclaimed leader of the “America First” movement—was mocked online after his Twitter account was suspended from the platform less than 24 hours after his reinstatement.
Fuentes posted a picture of his suspended account on Telegram on Wednesday morning, with the caption, “Well it was fun while it lasted" after he published an antisemitic tweet.
Fuentes had posted a short video advertising the 2024 presidential campaign of rapper Ye. He was recently embroiled in controversy after joining Ye for a highly controversial meeting with former Republican President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate.
Fuentes' video included a reference to a previous antisemitic tweet from Ye, whose own Twitter privileges have become the subject of heated debate since he threatened to go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.”

In his short time back on Twitter, Fuentes also hosted a Twitter Space where he praised the genocidal German Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler as well as domestic terrorist Ted Kaczynski, who killed three people and injured 23 others in a nationwide mail bombing campaign that earned him the nickname the "Unabomber."
Fuentes' decision to immediately espouse his neo-Nazi beliefs on Twitter adds to the mounting criticism of billionaire Elon Musk's stewardship of the platform, which has seen a rise in hate speech since he acquired it in October 2022 that researchers have linked to real world violence.
The news he'd been suspended so quickly exposed him to immediate mockery online.
Fuentes—who has been cited by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for his hateful rhetoric and previously advocated for "something like Taliban rule in America"—has attracted considerable attention from both left-wing and right-wing news outlets since meeting with Trump in November.
Last month, Fuentes was caught on video hurling his soda at customers at an In-N-Out Burger joint in Los Angeles after he was confronted over his racist rhetoric.
Shortly thereafter, he sparred with Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and denounced her as a "divorced woman girlboss" in reference to her ongoing divorce proceedings after she attempted to walk back her association with him and other White supremacists despite employing White supremacist talking points for political capital.
