A spokeswoman for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis reportedly harassed a reporter via Twitter – so the social media platform temporarily closed his account due to “abusive behavior.”

Christina Pushaw apparently disagreed with a Tuesday story from Associated Press reporter Brendan Farrington about a multi-million dollar DeSantis donor who also invested in a company producing Regeneron, a drug used to treat COVID patients.

DeSantis has been pushing for the drug as a COVID-19 treatment in his condition.

Pushaw shared Farrington’s report on his Twitter account and asked his followers to “drag them” before deleting the post.

The spokeswoman also threatened to detonate Farrington if the story was not changed and retweeted a post on the AP, adding the words “Light. Them. Up”.

Farrington received a number of threats after Pushaw’s tweets, according to the Associated Press.

When she learned that Farrington had been threatened, the spokesperson deleted the “drag them” tweet, telling her followers “no one should threaten anyone”.

“I’m fine, I hope. Freedom. Please don’t kill me,” Farrington later tweeted of the threats.
