Nashville comedian Joshua Black (real name: Joshua Lipscomb) has joined the ranks of Mike Lindell and Donald Trump by having his account (@SirJoshuaBlack) suspended by Twitter. Twitter is the latest entity to suspend Black for his behavior on social media, as his employer, the Nashville Fire Department, has suspended and reprimanded him multiple times for his conduct. Twitter has not yet disclosed if the current suspension, which Black received after photoshopping a confederate flag into the photo of a Nashville reporter and passing it off as authentic to support his claim of racism, is temporary or permanent.
The Nashville Fire Department has a Joshua Black problem. Firefighter Joshua Lipscomb, who moonlights as a local alcoholic comedian using the moniker ‘Sir Joshua Black’, has received poor reviews for his “professional conduct” on medical runs and was recently suspended for 8 days after some social media antics with a local business owner. Despite those woes, ‘Joshua Black’ now faces yet another complaint against him as he volleys accusations of racism towards any journalist he disagrees with, including Jason Steen and Meghan Mangrum.
