As 2020 drew to an end, it was time to thank all the things that made the horrible year less horrible.
While some people considered thanking social stars like Luke Millington Drake (famous for his Kiera Knightley impression), or Mary-Alice Farina, or Tabitha Brown (a TikTok sensation) first, the other group of people, without a second thought, wholeheartedly thanked Jordan Firstman, a quarantine comedian and a writer, first for his “Impressions” series on Instagram.
The California-based comedian rose to prominence in the coronavirus pandemic after his funny and relatable impression videos were successful to put a smile on thousands of people’s faces.
The Instagram star, who even got featured in a pop-culture website called The Cut, recieved a lot of hate after Diet Prada posted his racist and disturbing tweets from 2012.
Join us as we explain the story of Jordan’s offensive tweets from 2012. Also, get insights into Jordan’s general wikis, net worth, and dating life in the wiki-article below.
Jordan Firstman Offensive Tweets From 2012
On December 23, 2020, Diet Prada dug up a string of since-deleted tweets of Jordan where he made fun of homeless people, black lives, and the Indian race.
Although nothing can be found on Jordan’s Twitter handle except a Spotify ad now, Jordan’s tweets from 2012 went viral on the Internet.
One of his tweets was “speaking of homeless, people..has anyone tried killing one?”. Another tweet was “RT if you are a strong black woman. I’m looking to hire someone to fight in my place when needed.”
Among the series of tweets was “I hate Indian people because at my last Dublin donuts they knew my name and order and at this one they don’t.”
Although some people like actress Jameela Jamil came to Jordan’s defense calling his tweets “satire,” the majority of people pointed out that such sensitive things should never be the subject of a joke in the comment section.
One user named modello9 wrote, “All the folks in here saying, “But it’s from 2012″ Ok, and? You don’t get to slip out from being held accountable for racism just because it was 8 years ago. People should have room to grow, sure. But people should also be held accountable. Period.”
The other user named @totesmckee wrote, “Also….jokes need to be funny. These are more just unfunny, mostly racist statements.”
As soon as the tweets began taking the Internet by storm, Jordan wrote a lengthy apology letter on his Instagram which read: ‘I wrote some offensive jokes on Twitter in 2012 when I was 19 that is now being circulated online. I am deeply regretful and sorry for these tweets; I was young and dumb and trying to find my comedic voice. I have grown a million lifetimes since and I do not stand by them in any way. I say this with 100 percent confidence and purity, all I want is for everyone on earth to live a happy, equal, and fruitful life filled with love and laughter. I will continue to work on myself and continue to grow as I have always sought to do. I love you all. Truly all.’
Though Jordan has apologized to everyone for his racist tweets, only time will tell if Jordan will be forgiven or not.
