The equivalent would be if during WWII comic books were stripped from store shelves for portraying Nazis ‘in a bad light’.
‘Draw Mohammed’ Winner Bosch Fawstin Suspended on Twitter
Former Muslim Bosch Fawstin, who won the “Draw Mohammed” competition in 2015, has been suspended from Twitter.
In an article for Frontpage Mag, Fawstin announced his suspension, claiming the platform accused him of “hateful conduct,” before criticizing Twitter for refusing to sanction Muslim accounts which sent him death threats.
“They’re ignoring my challenges to my suspension, replying that my suspension stands. But unlike last time, they cited a particular tweet/reply of mine to someone on Twitter who took exception to my criticism of Marvel Comics and their Muslim superhero character,” he explained. “If you’re not aware that Marvel Comics is engaging in Islamic propaganda, I’ve been writing against it since they began a number of years ago. Here’s the gist: Marvel’s Muslim superhero comic book, Ms. Marvel, is being published during wartime, while Muslims are on the warpath, and the comic book, which has been around for about four years, completely avoids the Only reason we began to discuss Islam: Jihad.”
“I take great exception to that, as an American and as a cartoonist who writes and draws a comic book that takes on Islam and Jihad, The Infidel, featuring Pigman. If you don’t know, I’m a recovered Muslim, and the winner of the Mohammad Cartoon Contest,” Fawstin continued. “Jihadists came to kill those of us at the event and died for it. I mention this to show that I’m committed to this fight of telling the truth about the enemy and his ideology, despite death threats. And speaking of death threats, I reported two death threats that I got from Muslims on Twitter, and Twitter did Nothing about them, leaving their accounts intact.”

Twitter has suspended me again. The last time was in January, 2018. Strangely, they thought they could oust me without citing any particular tweet of mine. I challenged them a number of times, demanding why they suspended me, and every response was that my suspension stood. A number of my friends and supporters caused an online backlash, demanding that Twitter restore my account, and after a few days, Twitter wrote me that my suspension was a “mistake”. It was definitely a mistake, as I’ve never threatened anyone, and I criticize “hateful conduct”, I don’t engage in it. But I figured that they would pull it again, and they have.
Now, they accuse me of “hateful conduct”, and like last time, they’re ignoring my challenges to my suspension, replying that my suspension stands. But unlike last time, they cited a particular tweet/reply of mine to someone on Twitter who took exception to my criticism of Marvel Comics and their Muslim superhero character. If you’re not aware that Marvel Comics is engaging in Islamic propaganda, I’ve been writing against it since they began a number of years ago.
