Man behind Trump's eclipse meme laughed at liberals - then lost his t-shirt store for 'hating Jews' [View all]

24 AUG 2017 AT 15:06 ET

President Donald Trump has retweeted an apparent white supremacist for the second time in a month.

As noted by MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin, the author of Trump’s retweeted solar eclipse meme has expressed anti-Semitic sentiments on Twitter before.

Life came at Jerry Travone, the author of the eclipse meme, fast.

Earlier in the day, he was mocking “libtards” who reacted to the image — but soon found himself locked out of the account for his t-shirt store, Pro Wrestler Tees.

Travone, who describes himself as a “YouTube actor and political junkie” on Twitter, claimed the account for his wrestling t-shirt store was hacked when he was exposed for anti-Semitism. In response, the company OneHourTees said they closed his store because he “hates Jews.”
