Twitter bans popular conservative for joke Joe Biden meme

The blaze has reported that Twitter has suspended a popular conservative account for posting a joke meme about presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The Biden campaign installed a create-your-own "Team Joe" meme generator on its campaign website. It became an opportunity for social media jokesters to create fake endorsements.

Soon Twitter was besieged by fake Joe Biden "endorsements" featuring "the devil, several members of the media including CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, 'Corn Pop,' and a 'lying dog-faced pony soldier.'"

Popular conservative account, ALX, run by a production administrator for Turning Point USA, took advantage of the Biden campaign's meme generator by posting an endorsement from Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping.

Twitter suspended the AXL account. RedState wrote about the suspension and the offending tweet. An example of the AXL meme and RedState's commentary is below.

Turning Point USA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2012 by Charlie Kirk. The organization’s mission is to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government.
