Twitter Suspends Tila Tequila’s Account After Neo-Nazi Tweets

Twitter suspended former social media star Tila Tequila’s account Monday following a string of neo-Nazi tweets that drew increased attention over the weekend, when she attended a conference of “alt-right” white nationalists in Washington, D.C. 

At the conference, the 35-year-old Vietnamese-American model posed for a photo in which she and two other individuals performed the Nazi salute. She shared it on Twitter, writing the caption, “Seig [sic] heil!”

On Monday, following the tweet, Maggiano’s Little Italy —the restaurant where the photo was reportedly taken — apologized on Facebook for hosting the conference, an event that “resulted in hateful sentiment.”
