Comedian, writer, musician, actor, radio host, man-about-town and style icon Dave Hill has been suspended from Twitter for seven days, following a 30-day marathon of tweeting mom jokes at Trump supporters who engaged with him on the social media platform. The suspension is expected to last through Saturday, December 8th.
“I would tweet something or another at Trump, Trump supporters would tweet something back at me, usually about how I look like a woman or whatever, and I would happily take it from there,” Hill explained of his process.
Hill’s replies usually involved highly specific details about how he engaged in passionate, consensual sexual intercourse with their moms, and sometimes got into weird shit with their dads too. The tweets have since been removed.
“Twitter asked me to remove some and I just went ahead and got rid of all them as a preemptive strike,” Hill said. “I guess it’s kind of like how Tibetan monks make those beautiful sand mandalas and then completely destroy them afterward.”
Hill took to Facebook to announce his Twitter suspension.
“I have finally been suspended from Twitter for an entire week,” he said in a lengthy post. “Was it worth it? Sure. Am I a hero? Probably. But the important thing to remember here is that we all have a job in the #resistance. For some, it’s speaking out against injustice. For others, it’s getting people registered to vote. And for more than 30 days straight in the Fall of 2018, mine was telling Trump supporters I porked their moms, sometimes in the butt and often with their husbands filming and buying us pizza afterwards.”
Although Hill is temporarily suspended from Twitter, he will continue to offer his services of telling Trump supporters that he had sex with their moms on other platforms.
“If anyone needs me to tell a Trump supporter on Facebook that I porked their mom or even got up to some weird shit with their dad, I am more than happy to do so,” Hill said on Facebook.
A Twitter campaign has been launched to protest Dave’s suspension using hashtag #SaveDave. Emmy-nominated comedy writer Caissie St. Onge expressed her displeasure with the comedian’s suspension in a tweet:
“Guys, one thing that brings me joy in these dark times is @mrdavehill’s “Your mom” (& your dad) jokes, but some goober reported him & he’s suspended for a week. Why is the punishment for being a hilarious idiot swifter & harsher than for being a Nazi here? #SaveDave” –
The Ettes frontwoman and Merge Records recording artist Coco Hames also voiced her support for Dave in a tweet:
“#SaveDave the best and most important part of Twitter.”
After comedian Dave Anthony declared Hill’s suspension is “a digital crime,” fellow comedian Michael Ian Black got in on the #SaveDave action with:
“Your mom is a digital crime. #SaveDave”

Twitter suspended Dave Hill for making ridiculous jokes to Trump supporters that he was banging their moms. This is a digital crime #savedave

My friend @mrdavehill was suspended from twitter for saying he porked the moms of some Trump supporters harassing him. This is not a crime. If porking a conservative's mom were a crime, Dave would've gone to jail long ago. #SaveDave

Some heroes go to Twitter jail for talking about making love to the mothers of Trump supporters, some of them deceased. That’s what @mrdavehill does. He’s not going to handcuff himself to Twitter offices, he’s too busy bringing erotic joy to all of your moms. #savedave

@mrdavehill has been documenting his relationships with bracing honesty, and it's been some of the most inspiring content on Twitter. And what happens? Twitter suspends him. It's an outrage. #SaveDave
