Outspoken conservative actor James Woods — a target of Twitter censorship at the Democratic National Committee’s behest ahead of the 2020 election — is threatening to lead a class action lawsuit against the social media giant and the DNC over the damage done to his career and reputation.
“How would you like to fund a class action suit for those who were suppressed?” Woods asked Elon Musk Saturday, in a tweet thanking the billionaire — Twitter’s new owner — for exposing politically motivated suppression of Republicans on the site. “I’ll be happy to be lead plaintiff.”
A Woods tweet from 2020 featuring a photo of a half-naked, apparently drug-smoking Hunter Biden — taken from the scandalous laptop that The Post exposed — was targeted for removal by Democratic Party operatives, according to a Friday document dump of internal messages among Twitter insiders.
“An additional report from the DNC,” an unnamed Twitter employee wrote on Oct. 24, 2020 in an email linking Woods’ tweet — which plugged the embarrassing photo of then-candidate Joe Biden’s son into a Biden campaign badge. The tweet was later removed.
“I will be getting a lawyer. I will be suing the Democratic National Committee no matter what,” Woods told Tucker Carlson of Fox News late Friday.
“I’m hardly recognizable anymore because my career has been destroyed by these very people,” Woods said. “I will sue. And I’m hoping other people will sue.”
