Twitter blocked a divisive hashtag comparing Senator Tim Scott to racist "Uncle Tom" that depicts Black people as sellouts.

The Republican Party chose Scott to deliver the rebuttal to Joe Biden's first ever speech before 200 members of Congress on Wednesday night.

The 46th president spoke for about an hour to a nearly empty room due to Covid concerns -- despite the fact that he is fully vaccinated.

After Biden's speech, Scott, the Republican senator from South Carolina, said the United States is not a racist country and most Americans are not racists.

Scott spoke of an unfriendlier time in America when he experienced discrimination.

He argued that the same party that claims to fight white supremacy is the most intolerant of others.

"I get called Uncle Tom and the N-word by progressives ... I know first-hand, our healing is not finished,' he said.

"Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country."

The hashtag "Uncle Tim" began trending on Twitter soon after he spoke.

Bishop Talbert Swan, a black pastor from Massachusetts, tweeted: "Uncle Tim Scott has perfected the art of sycophantic bootlicking. He's a master step n fetch it artist and cunning white supremacy apologist, who demonstrated his buck dancing skills in front of the entire world."

But others pointed out the hypocrisy that exists on social media.

One Twitter user wrote:

"The fact that "Uncle Tim" is trending on Twitter tells you all you need to know about the left."

Another user tweeted:

"Not stunned that Uncle Tim is trending because how dare even one black person not follow the Democrats like the Pied Piper. How dare Sen Tim Scott have his own opinions and principles?"

Twitter allowed the hashtag to trend for hours before it was finally blocked.

He was tackled to the floor by the home's occupants, but he escaped and was caught by police about 2 blocks away.

According to gossipmongers, Silentó went into the home in search of his girlfriend who leaked a vulgar image of him online.

Silentó, real name Richard Hawk, trended online after the photo went viral on Twitter.com. The photo was originally posted in a private sub on Reddit.com titled Silentó bussy. "Bussy" is a colloquial term for "boy pu**y."

The graphic image shows a young man snapping a graphic selfie after engaging in a tryst with another man.

But the person in the photo is not Silentó.

The man was identified by Twitter users as an Internet p0rn star named Da Don (not to be confused with Lori Harvey's new boyfriend, Da Donn.

Da Don (the p0rn star) is a 26-year-old male who earns a living posting p0rnograpic material to sites like OnlyFans.

Although he is 26, he looks like a teenager being sexually abused by grown men in videos.

Da Don's filthy images and videos are easily accessible to children on Twitter.com.

Monday, Jan. 20, is Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a federal holiday in America. Black Twitter users sent the hashtag #MLKDay trending on the social media platform.

The hashtag generated tens of thousands of tweets paying tribute to the slain civil rights leader. But one tweet in particular caught Black Twitter's eye.

The tweet was sent by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), who many accused of tapping Dr. King's phones in motel rooms and sending tapes of his sexual exploits to his wife, Coretta Scott King, pictured below with King and their first child, Yolanda King, in 1956.

The tweet accompanied a nighttime photo of a memorial to Dr. King installed at the entrance to the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

"Today, the FBI honors the life and work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A quote from Dr. King is etched in stone at the FBI Academy's reflection garden in Quantico as a reminder to all students and FBI employees: "The time is always right to do what is right." #MLKDay

As they do every year when the FBI remembers King on his holiday, Black Twitter was ready to throw jabs and daggers.

Not willing to let bygones be bygones Black Twitter reminded the FBI that ex-director J. Edgar Hoover tapped Dr. King's phones and hounded him to his grave.

Twitter users threw an impromptu party after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced an official impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Black Twitter also celebrated under the hashtag #ImpeachmentParty on Tuesday.

In a tweet on Tuesday Trump called the impeachment inquiry a "witch hunt."

"There has been no President in the history of our Country who has been treated so badly as I have. The Democrats are frozen with hatred and fear. They get nothing done. This should never be allowed to happen to another President. Witch Hunt!"

Twitter's hopes are high that the Senate will vote to impeach Trump who is under fire for allegedly asking the Ukrainian president to give him dirt on his political rival Joe Biden.

One Twitter user wrote: "I know this is just a first step, but damnit we've waited SO. LONG. for the start of *something* more tangible, lord knows we deserve an #ImpeachmentParty".

Others wondered why Pelosi took so long to begin the impeachment inquiry into Trump's alleged high crimes and misdemeanors.

Political pundits criticized the Democrats for attempting to impeach Trump with the election just one year away. They say the impeachment process will distract from the Democratic candidates and possibly backfire on the Democrats.

Trump's good friend, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee had the best response to the impeachment party celebrations.

"I'll release later today an unredacted transcript of phone call I had with @PapaJohns ordering a pepperoni pizza. Jerry Nadler has subpoenaed it and AOC demanded that the pepperoni be removed to save the planet. #ImpeachmentParty".
