Outspoken Rangers defenseman Tony DeAngelo has been tweeting his way through the presidential election, but his account appeared to have been temporarily deactivated after a tweet about COVID-19.
DeAngelo’s Twitter account was back by Thursday afternoon, but it did not include the tweet that may have gotten him in hot water.
“What happened to ‘COVID-19’ the last 48 hours?” DeAngelo wrote Wednesday afternoon in a since-deleted tweet, according to a screenshot from the user @MerOutLoud.
What happened with COVID-19 on Wednesday was the United States setting a one-day record with 102,831 new cases, according to Johns Hopkins. There were also 1,097 new deaths reported.
Before the election, DeAngelo offered his support for President Trump, who had previously tweeted that “Until November 4th, Fake News Media is going full on Covid, Covid, Covid.”
“Well this be be [sic] my final tweet until the results are in,” DeAngelo tweeted Monday. “I hope the people will vote to keep America GREAT and keep an America FIRST agenda. Goodluck Mr. President! #MAGA #KAG”
DeAngelo didn’t quite stick to his word, retweeting multiple tweets throughout Tuesday, congratulating Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell on his reelection and also claiming that Pennsylvania was trying to “rig” the election.
The 25-year-old DeAngelo, a New Jersey native, has not tweeted since his account was seemingly reactivated Thursday.
