His Twitter account has been suspended twice. First on January 20, 2020, for publishing a tweet posing as the FBI on Martin Luther King Day and saying they were responsible for the murder of the activist. In March 2020, his Twitter account @jaboukie was suspended after having tweeted a satiric tweet against Joe Biden, a US politician who served as the 47th vice president. Biden used the account to impersonate verified accounts such as the “Cats” film and the FBI.
His tweet “BREAKING: Joe Biden is not DEAD. He just getting some d-ck. We’ve all been there cnn.com.” might have raised an alarm to Biden or maybe CNN because Jaboukie had changed his display name and icon to match that of the CNN Breaking News account making it look like CNN did make the tweet. The satirical tweet was in reference to mounting calls on social media over the virtual campaign absence of Vice President Joe Biden.
