Former Covington High School student Nicholas Sandmann, the young man who was harassed at the National Mall while on a school trip, defamed by the media, and then made millions off suing the MSM, asked the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, to release any files he might have that regard the social media company allowing people to make death threats against him following the incident.
Posting that request on Twitter, Sandmann said:
“As I’m watching this all play out, I’m wondering if @elonmusk has any hidden twitter files relating to what went on here. Let’s be clear: under the watch of @vijaya they allowed these illegal threats when I was 16 years old.”
He then attached to that tweet asking for the death threat files, or “death files”, as Wayne Dupree called them, a tweet of his own in which he included screenshots of hysterical leftist accounts making threats on his life and he had said “REMINDER: Twitter allows these two Verified accounts to remain on the platform after making Death Threats against me and my classmates. This not only against their rules, it’s illegal. But they banned @ALX for nothing. Why is this ok? cc:@vijaya @TwitterSupport”
The horrific threats on Sandmann’s life included such monstrous lines as:
“Lock the kids in the school and burn that bitch to the ground”
“If you are a true fan of Shoes I want you to fire on any of these red hat bitches when you see them. On sight.”
“Hey Twitter, we need to have a talk. Last night I learned & confirmed the name of the “main student” from the #CovingtonCatholic incident. The kid grinning in front of the Native elder. Hop in this thread because I’m going to walk you through some deep but important stuff.”
And, worst of all, “#MAGAKids go screaming, feet first, into the woodchipper.”
REMINDER: Twitter allows these two Verified accounts to remain on the platform after making Death Threats against me and my classmates.
This not only against their rules, it’s illegal.
But they banned @ALX for nothing.
Why is this ok?

Fox News Digital wrote an excellent reminder of what happened to Sandmann in 2019, saying:
Sandmann was at the center of controversy in 2019 after the March For Life, where he was photographed smiling while wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat as he was being confronted by Native American activist Nathan Phillips. Many media outlets portrayed the incident as a group of White teenagers harassing an older Native American, though full video of the incident later showed Sandmann and his fellow students remained calm after they were initially confronted by Phillips.
And, given the recent Twitter revelations, he has cause to expect Musk might release something useful and expositive. Musk recently tweeted, for example, that there are “more smoking guns” on the way, saying:
“We’re just gonna put all the information out there try to get a clean slate we will be iteratively better and it will force other media companies to also be more truthful or else they’ll lose their readership,”
