Actress Marlee Matlin Writes Tweet, Gets Unfollowed By All Trump Family Members

Academy-award winner Marlee Matlin was recently unfollowed by the whole Trumpclanfamily.

The actor and advocate for the deaf community was unfollowed because of this tweet she posted earlier this week:

How do we know they all unfollowed her? Well, there is a Twitter bot that actually tracks the follows and unfollows of the Trump accounts. Because, of course there is.

Needless to say, supporters had Matlin’s back. 

They all followed her BECAUSE the Trumps unfollowed her.*

I think that’s beautiful! 

(*Also, as someone born with only 50% of their hearing, I admit this got me a little teary-eyed.)

But, this message will really make you smile!

Here is a bit more detail about the unfollowing heard ’round the world:

Since Ms. Matlin dealt with worse on “The Apprentice,” and still followed them on Twitter, hard to believe she’s that petty.

Do I think the Trump offspring are that petty?

I mean, consider the source!

Thank you, Marlee for your courage in the face of ignorance!

People Thought Donald Trump Unfollowed Kellyanne Conway And Things Got Out Of Hand

On Tuesday, shortly after what must have been Kellyanne Conway's worst interview yet on the Today Show, and only hours later seeing her thank and retweeting a white nationalist, public speculation that Conway would be the next member of Trump's administration to either be fired or resign seemed like a pretty good bet.

As the rumor mill started churning, people started noticing that Kellyanne was no longer being followed by Trump, thinking that Trump essentially announced that he was going to fire her over Twitter.

Many have already likened the Trump presidency to another reality TV show, complete with its twists and fan favorites being voted off the island every few days, which is why this was so believable, but the reality of the situation is that none of the accounts ever followed Conway to begin with.

Trump has followed the same number of people for years, with that number fluctuating on occasion, including that time in January where he followed @EmergencyKittens, an account dedicated to flooding the internet with pictures of cute kittens, for a limited amount of time.

At no point in time was it documented that Trump followed Conway's account, with someone pointing out just that a few weeks after the elections.

But the damage was done. The rumor mill churned out its alternative facts and soon even those with verified accounts were tweeting the news to the masses.

Later in the day, both Trump and the POTUS Twitter accounts followed Conway, presumably to put and end to the rumors that she was next on the chopping block.
