Jordan Peterson addresses the Issue:


Jordan Peterson posted a video on his Youtube channel speaking up about this issue. In the video, Jordan says that he would “rather die” than delete his tweet:

“I have essentially been banned from Twitter as a consequence. I say banned, although technically I have been suspended. But the suspension will not be lifted unless I delete the ‘hateful’ tweet in question, and I would rather die than do that,” Peterson says in his video.

Recently, in an interview with the National Post, he addressed this controversy and he expressed his statement:

“I penned an irritated tweet in response to one of the latest happenings on the increasingly heated culture war front,” Peterson told the publication. “There are no rules on Twitter except don’t do what we don’t like today. They are always applied post hoc by algorithms and idiots bent on maintaining their woke superiority.”

It is evident that both the parties, Twitter and Jordan Peterson are firm with their opinions and neither of them wants to back out in this tussle.
