Another one bites the dust...on Twitter. Stephen King claimed Trump blocked him.


Horror fiction extraordinaire Stephen King has become the latest high-profile figure to be added to the #BlockedByTrump list on Tuesday, the Washington Post reported. The best-selling author has been a frequent critic of Trump before and after his January inauguration. 

“A Trump presidency scares me more than anything else,” King said during a Washington Post Facebook Live interview. “I’m terrified that he’ll become president.”

It's unclear what prompted the immediate Twitter blocking, but it could be related to King's tweet about Trump's Cabinet and daughter Ivanka Trump.

Fortunately for King, another vocal Trump critic and best-selling author came to his rescue.

Either way, King isn't going to let Trump silence him.
