Twitter has blocked the account of the Sevillian bullfighter José Antonio “Morante de la Puebla” for posting several videos of yesterday’s bullfight in Algeciras (Cádiz) and considering that this was promoting “sadistic pleasure”.
The cigarette bullfighter has been in charge of condemning this action by Twitter with a message stating that “freedom does not exist in this country. Enough already ”and he has also uploaded a screenshot of the reasons why this social network has temporarily blocked his official account.
According to Twitter, these publications (a moment of the slaughter of his second bull and the third of the banderillas that he also starred in this same bull) violate several of its rules, specifically the one that prohibits the publication of multimedia content that shows “free bloody scenes.”
“You cannot share excessively graphic multimedia content (eg serious injuries, torture …) Exposure to gory scenes can be harmful, especially if the content is published with the intention of causing delight in cruelty or for sadistic pleasure” notes Twitter.
Twitter thus joins other platforms and social networks such as YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook that also restrict and eliminate this content uploaded by their users.
