‘Green Book’ Writer Deletes Twitter Account After Muslim 9/11 Tweet Surfaces
 

 

“Green Book” writer and producer Nick Vallelonga has deleted his Twitter account after one of his old social media posts from 2015, in which he seemed to back Donald Trump’s claim that New Jersey Muslims cheered on 9/11, resurfaced online.

In November 2015, Trump made headlines after the then-presidential candidate said without evidence that he “watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.”

Vallelonga replied to Trump, “100% correct. Muslims in Jersey City cheering when towers went down. I saw it, as you did, possibly on local CBS news.”

Reps for Vallelonga did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday. But a publicist for the writer told IndieWire: “The twitter account has been deleted… not sure if any comment is actually needed here.”

The resurfaced tweet comes just days after “Green Book” took home the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy on Sunday. But Wednesday was a bad day for “Green Book” all around: The film’s director, Peter Farrelly, apologized for repeatedly flashing his p*nis two decades ago in an attempt to be funny.

Universal did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

In November 2015, Trump told ABC’s “This Week” that “there were people that were cheering on the other side of New Jersey, where you have large Arab populations. They were cheering as the World Trade Center came down. I know it might be not politically correct for you to talk about it, but there were people cheering as that building came down — as those buildings came down. And that tells you something.”

Weeks later, Trump doubled down on his story, telling Alex Jones’ “InfoWars” that he heard from “four or five” supporters after making the claim who said, “‘Mr. Trump, I saw it myself! I was there!'”

But Trump’s version of events was challenged by major news outlets, including The New Yorker and The Washington Post, which, after trying to fact-check the story, concluded: “This is a bit like writing about the hole in the doughnut — how can you write about nothing?”

Vallelonga’s tweet was deleted Wednesday evening shortly after it was resurfaced. The writer’s entire Twitter account was deleted soon after.

The contentious tweet comes as the writer and producer is on tour to promote his award-winning film — based on his father’s real-life experience driving concert pianist Dr. Don Shirley through the deep South in 1962.

Like anything will happen to him. That said, nothing should. That sh*t is light and who can prove he didn't see what he said he saw? He is likely lying his a*s off but he gotta ride that sh*t out to the end and give no fu*ks.

Its gonna come back to k*ll them, and it looks like that might happen very soon actually. Only so long everyone can go without saying or doing anything. Also, I’ve been noticing I been getting a lot more females expressing real interest in me and even going as far as to make plans. Talked with my cousin a few months ago and she said she absolutely hates this generation of men for being so feminine.

You can only f*ght Nature for so long.

Black people have lost their jobs and opportunities for just being black. Also not gotten jobs and opportunities for being black. If racist are shamed (not losing opportunities or jobs) on social media for being racist, I don't see anything wrong with that. Anyone who sees it as the end of the world has to be a racist as well.

Exactly what I thought. Lol at them trying to change the narrative and it being Muslims. What Muslim would be dumb enough to do that. Only people cheering were the ones involved.

Not a trump supporter or left or right supporter. But, I'm from JC and can say that it did happen. Not sure about thousands of Muslims cheering but theres a local store in the Indian square section of JC who were cheering when the second plane hit. My uncle lived in the neighborhood and told me about this the same day it happened. They got their a*s beat up by a bunch of Puerto Ricans from the neighborhood.

Yeah I was pretty sure I remembered that happening but it was a long time and lot of drugs ago so I wasn't 100% on it. So this dude is in the process of getting "canceled" for tweeting facts. America is slowly moving to becoming like 1984
