Twitter Censors Photo of GOYA Can Wearing a MAGA Hat As 'Potentially Sensitive'

The culture war over Goya continued on Tuesday after Twitter said it mistakenly censored a photo containing the company’s products.

A spokesperson for the company told Fox Business Twitter had flagged at least one post, but did so “in error” and eventually corrected the mistake.

The offending images: The Media Research Center on Monday reported that two images posted on July 11 by the same Twitter user, Frank Rizzo, were marked as “potentially sensitive” content.

One of the posts depicted a can of Goya-brand black beans wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Some conservatives interpreted Twitter’s actions as a deliberate shot at them and at Goya, which has faced backlash from liberals after its CEO last week voiced support for President Donald Trump.

Goycott: Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and failed 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro, have pushed a boycott of the Latino-owned company over the issue.

Meanwhile, Trump, his daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump and other prominent conservatives have promoted Goya products.

Big tech censorship: The president in May threatened the business model of many internet platforms after Twitter started placing warning labels and fact checks on his tweets.

Like many on the right, Trump has alleged that powerful tech companies are actively suppressing conservative viewpoints while claiming to adhere to ideologically neutral user policies.
