Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene held nothing back in the recent House Oversight Committee Hearing which featured several former Twitter executives.
MTG called out Twitter’s former Twitter executive Yoel Roth and told him “It’s amazing to me Mr. Roth as the head and Trust and Safety at Twitter your ability or should I say inability to remove child porn.”
Greene wouldn’t stop there.
The lawmaker from Georgia would go on to tell Roth “Now here is something that disgusts me about you. In your doctoral dissertation entitled ‘Gay Data,’ you argued that minors should have access to grinder, an adult male gay hook-up app,” “Minors. Really?”

El American had more details to report:
The House Oversight Committee held a hearing on Wednesday regarding Twitter’s blocking of conservative accounts and the Hunter Biden laptop incident.
James Baker, Vijaya Gadde, and Yoel Roth—all three former Twitter employees—were present at the session when they were interrogated by Republican senators.
Republican representative Marjorie Taylor Greene lashed out at former Twitter executive Yoel Roth at one point during the session for supporting teens using the homosexual hookup app Grinder and for encouraging child trafficking on Twitter.
“It’s amazing to me Mr. Roth as the head and Trust and Safety at Twitter your ability or should I say inability to remove child porn,” MTG said.
“Now here is something that disgusts me about you. In your doctoral dissertation entitled ‘Gay Data,’ you argued that minors should have access to grinder, an adult male gay hook-up app,” “Minors. Really?” The congresswoman continued her speech.

The Washington Times got the scoop too:
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Wednesday told the three former Twitter executives she is glad they were fired from the platform, in an explosive line of questioning that became personal for the GOP firebrand who was once banned from the site.
Ms. Greene accused Twitter’s former chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, former deputy general counsel James Baker and former head of trust and safety Yoel Roth of abusing the power of Big Tech to censor conservatives by canceling her own account and that of former President Donald Trump.
“You were censoring and wrongfully violating our First Amendment rights,” she said. “None of you are elected. And none of you represent 750,000 people like I do.”
Before Elon Musk bought Twitter, Yoel Roth was in charge of “Trust & Safety” at the company while child porn was all over the platform.
