Twitter suspended “God’s” account over a pro-LGBTQ post, claiming the comment violated the site’s hate speech policies, according to Pink News.

“If gay people are a mistake, they're a mistake I've made hundreds of millions of times, which proves I'm incompetent and shouldn't be relied upon for anything,” Twitted comedian David Javerbaum, who runs the popular account.

Twitter flagged Javerbaum’s post and suspended his account on June 11, but allowed him back on the site that same day, citing an error form the company’s support team. “We’ve determined there was no violation and have restored your account to full functionality,” read the company’s email.

“Don’t try to make all kissy-kissy with Me now, Twitter. It’s too late. You messed with the wrong Near Eastern Bronze Age sky-father-king projection. By the time I’m done with you, MYSPACE will laugh at your relevance,” the comedian wrote immediately after his account was restored. The post referencing Twitter's apology was liked 44,000 times and retweeted almost 7,000 times

Javerbaum’s account was originally an attempt to publicize his book The Last Testament: A Memoir by God which later became a Broadway show. It has since morphed into space with more than 6 million followers, in which the television personality frequently comments on political and religious subjects.
