Columbus Filmmaker Peter John Ross Has Twitter Account Suspended
Ross has endured over a decade of allegations that he's a cyber predator
There was no indication of why his account was suspended, but in recent weeks Ross could allegedly be seen abusing the tweeting service's blocking system by making abusive commentary about minor children on other Twitter accounts.
Twitter said, "We may suspend an account if it has been reported to us as violating our rules surrounding abuse. When an account engages in abusive behavior, like sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts."
It's been a tough year for Ross, who lost his fourth local Emmy bid for "best instructional video" to a video about butter sculptures.
Then, according to Ross, himself, he had his cable access show removed from local PBS after allegations of 15 years of online abuse against others surfaced.
On his blog, Ross said that he cyber bullies people for the "excitement of having stories to tell," and that he prefers bullying people with [developmental disabilities].
(Editor's note: we've edited his commentary remove hate speech against the disabled)
Ross claims that anyone who responds to his attacks is "harassing him," and that his "famous film career causes [him] to get stalkers," in defense of his actions.
His most recent short film, called Touching Kids, about a pedophile named Uncle Pete, which makes light of child molestation, has 137 views.
