FILE – In this Nov. 2, 2016 file photo, actor James Woods attends the premiere of the film “Bleed for This” in Beverly Hills, Calif. Woods’ agent has dropped the actor as a client, citing patriotism. On Thursday, July 5, 2018, Woods shared on Twitter an email from his agent, Ken Kaplan. In the excerpted email from Wednesday, Kaplan said he was “feeling patriotic” and no longer wanted to represented Woods. Woods is among Hollywood’s most outspoken conservatives.

Are you a fan of James Woods?
The Casino star is clearly not a fan of George Soros.
Late Saturday night, he posted to Twitter a reference to the left-wing billionaire (and European resident), drawing connections to lots of public figures including Pope Francis and Barack Obama.
“Imagine if one man was a puppetmaster for unthinking numbskulls who spout his narratives because their ability to reason is so woefully challenged.”

Apparently, someone wasn’t crazy ’bout it.
Hence, they filed an official complaint with the Bluebird.
Later, James received a message from the Powers That Be informing him, “We have received a complaint regarding your account, @RealJamesWoods, for the following content.”
“We have investigated the reported content and could not identify any violations of the Twitter Rules or German law. Accordingly, we have taken no action at this time.”
I’m going on context clues here, but I’m gonna guess the Oscar nominee didn’t appreciate the episode.
He provided merely a two-word response:
Dear Twitter, Blow me. Sincerely, James Woods pic.twitter.com/taZtkJiB2d

James might just be a little tired of scrutiny. In April of 2019, he was locked out of his 2-million-follower account.
According to girlfriend Sarah Miller, the discipline was due to his statement, “If you try to kill the King, you better not miss. #HangThemAll.” It was posted around the time the Mueller investigation reported no sufficient evidence of collusion.
Sarah provided a screenshot:

Woods was gone for 10 months, but he returned thusly:
I’ve tried so hard this past year to live without the wealth of knowledge available on Twitter, but this kind of blazing insight can be found nowhere else, so… I’m back! #AOCStillAMoron pic.twitter.com/kB0oDXmArB

As for his two-word letter to the social network, users had ideas:
Or German law? WTF?

That’s hilarious. I had an account nuked for no reason.

Unbelievable… There is absolutely NOTHING that should even allow that Tweet to be reported..

Don't understand people who put the energy into trying to get accounts they disagree with banned. It would take less energy to block their account.

I don’t expect Twitter to ask my opinion any time soon, but I believe social media would be a better place if free speech existed there as it should across the nation.
In my estimation, outside of something fairly objective like a no-nudity rule, restriction of content is primed to spawn political targeting.
Either way, a prominent Hollywood actor apparently wants to have his hair dried or something.
