So here’s the story of how I found out that William Shatner blocked my ass on Twitter. I was scrolling through Twitter, as I do, and I came across a tweet from Mark Hamill retweeting something from William Shatner and this is what I see.
My first thought is that perhaps William Shatner deleted his tweet and that’s why it’s unavailable, so just to be sure I tap it and this is the next thing I see.
WHAT? Why in the world did William Shatner block ME? I’ve never said anything negative to him. I’ve admired him my entire life. I loved him in “Star Trek”, heck, I played with his action figure when I was a child. I loved him in ALL of the “Star Trek” movies. I loved him in “T.J. Hooker” and “Haven” and “Weird or What?” I absolutely loved him in the Priceline commercials, and I think that’s why he blocked me.
So when I found out he blocked me, I went to Twitter and searched my Twitter name which is @Xanapus and his Twitter name, which is also his actual name, and I found this tweet that someone had RT’d of my tweet. I couldn’t find my actual tweet.
So my tweet was referring to this article here from E Online saying Priceline Kills Off William Shatner’s Negotiator—Watch His Grisly End. So what is wrong with me saying rest in peace to “William Shatner’s character in the Priceline commercials.”???? What did I do that was so wrong? I was sad, I was upset, and I was in mourning for his character. Was what I said a blockable offense? No, it’s absolutely not. There was not one negative thing in my tweet to him.
Priceline did kill him off, he went over a bridge in a bus and his character did in fact die, but they brought him back with a daughter. Kaley Cuoco Is Now Priceline Negotiator William Shatner’s Secret Daughter. I was so happy they brought him back from the dead and I love Kaley Cuoco as his daughter.
You know what? I’m really hurt that he decided to block me over such a harmless tweet, but if he has such thin skin that me saying RIP to his character is going to make him block me, then fine, I honestly don’t care. I won’t love him any less than I have my entire life. He will always be a hero to me, so you do you William Shatner.
Update: Ok so here’s some new information. Apparently he is blocking a LOT of people. Check it out. Go to Twitter and search Blocked by William Shatner. Someone said that William Shatner is a huge Trump fan, so perhaps he is going through the list of his followers and finding out who has tweeted anything negative about Trump and blocking them. Someone else told me it is a badge of honor to be blocked by William Shatner, so I added that badge to my Twitter profile.
