Twitter appears to have de-verified Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on Friday, two days after he ranted about “Satanic Jews” and the “Synagogue of Satan.”
Farrakhan is a notorious racist and anti-Semite who has close ties to several Democraticmembers of Congress.
“I wonder will you recognize Satan? I wonder, will you see the Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan, which has many races in it, because Satan has deceived the whole world, and think about the message that I was blessed by God to give you today,” Farrakhan said in a video he posted Wednesday.
“Think about what they’re gonna say when they have been so thoroughly and completely unmasked. Whenever you read that God has told the Jews to hear and obey, and they say, I hear and I disobey, that’s Satan,” he continued.
Farrakhan was still verified sometime on Friday, internet archives show, but by Friday evening the blue checkmark has disappeared from his account. Twitter has in the past taken similar punitive measures against racists and white nationalists.
A Twitter spokesperson said the company is “unable to comment on individual accounts, for privacy and security reasons.”

The tech company drew criticism in November after refusing to de-verify Farrakhan at that time.
Conservatives renewed that criticism on Thursday and Friday in response to Farrakhan’s tweet about “Satanic Jews.”
