Actor John Cusack Can’t Just “Say Anything” on Twitter: Account Disappears, “No Warning Notice, No reason given”


John Cusack’s Twitter account has gone missing. The star of Cameron Crowe’s 1989 hit, “Say Anything,” has learned you can’t just do that on the social media platform. Someone at Twitter has objected to the content of his Tweets, whether they’re about supporting the war in Ukraine, prodding Merrick Garland, or repeating info about Tesla’s recalls.

Cusack’s account isn’t the only one from a popular 80s actor that’s disappeared. Also gone is the one belonging to Rat Pack actor Andrew McCarthy. He posted to Instagram that “someone has hacked my Twitter account…Twitter is totally unresponsive…Thank God I don’t own a Tesla…” Seriously, McCarthy had no political posts, so no one knows what’s going on there.

Cusack’s post is below as well. Maybe it’s time to call a meeting of the Breakfast Club to figure all this out!

Hey there
Looks like Mr free speech absolutist
banned my twitter account –
Totally frozen out – no warning no notice – was it the Ukrainian children action fund i work with ? Which he has now blocked me from publicizing?
The Shitty battery comments ?
Or my pointing out his spreading disinformation propaganda
And fascist sympathies?
No access to my account no warning notice – or reason given –
If you care to ask him why – I’ll try to make it an issue he has to deal with.
