Sargon has been suspended before in early 2017 because he tweeted some offensive content towards other Twitter users the ban was temporary and so he was able to get back on Twitter in no time. but it seems like this time the social media giant won’t be given him another chance.
Sargon Of Akkad has always been one of the most controversial YouTubers around who don’t care if people find his video offensive but has presented his arguments with proper facts.
In his early days of Youtube, he mainly covered stories on GamerGate and Feminism which made him popular. he has been portrayed as an alt right by Major news publication site. but he claims himself to be a classical liberal.
