Updated April 22, 2018 11:23:28 An online comic blogger has been told to “get your head out of the sand” as he defends his “sarcasm and innuendo” and “sadism” on Twitter.
The former journalist, who goes by the handle @TheRabidGamer, has been using the handle to share his “fans” and tweets on Twitter under the name “The Rabid Gamer” since January last year.
“This is what the internet is for, this is the internet, this internet is the only place that allows me to get my head out,” he told ABC News.
Mr Rabid has since used his account to share some of his “riff-raff” tweets.
He has written “this is my favourite piece of internet history”, “this isn’t funny at all” and said he wanted to “destroy the internet”.
“I’ve just found a little bit of truth in everything,” he said.
Mr Trump’s administration has taken a different tone towards the internet.
Earlier this month, Attorney-General Jeff Sessions said that internet service providers would be fined if they did not block websites containing illegal content.
The US President has been criticised for his criticism of free speech online and has been forced to back down on some of the more controversial stances.
“I think that it is very important to understand the difference between the First Amendment and the First amendment of the US Constitution,” he tweeted on March 3.
“That’s the difference.”
