Tila Tequila should’ve been out of here long ago, but on Monday her often-bizarre Twitter account was suspended for hate speech.

Twitter confirmed to BuzzFeed News that it had taken down Tequila’s account. Though the social network did not elaborate on the process by which it decided to deactivate the account, Tequila’s tweets have in the past generated controversy for apparently including hate speech.
Earlier this month, Tequila, 35, tweeted, “Are you and your people ready to be rounded up to FEMA camps? Actually, that may be letting you off too easy!”
Over the weekend, Tequila — born in Singapore to a Vietnamese family and raised in Texas — shared an image of herself performing a Nazi salute with two men. The image was taken at a gathering of the white nationalist National Policy Institute in Washington, DC. She tweeted it with the caption “Seig heil!”
Tequila has been expressing sympathy with Nazism for years. Before her account was suspended Monday, her Twitter bio included the description “Alt-reich queen! Literally Hitler!”
In 2013, she posted an image to Facebook showing her standing in front of the notorious Auschwitz concentration camp wearing a Nazi armband. Though in 2015 she claimed to not be “a racist nor antisemitic and absolutely not 100% a Nazi supporter,” this year she tweeted “Happy birthday, mein Fuhror!” on Hitler’s birthday and shared other images of herself sporting Nazi imagery.
Tequila has also been a vocal supporter of President-elect Donald Trump. In July, she shared a photoshopped image of herself in Nazi attire with the then-candidate. As of Monday, her Facebook profile picture showed her wearing a Trump hat.
Now, we just need for Twitter to get rid of all those dog avi and egg accounts!
