Rumor: Rangers shut down Tony DeAngelo's Twitter account

The Rangers blueliner and part-time right wing mouthpiece finally crosses the line.


If you follow New York Rangers defenseman Tony DeAngelo online you know that the right-leaning DeAngelo isn't one to keep his opinions to himself. Love him or hate him, there's no doubt that DeAngelo is outspoken in his support for Donald Trump and the Republican party. DeAngelo has managed to inject himself into seemingly every political controversy on Twitter and now it appears that the Rangers have finally had enough.

Head to DeAngelo's Twitter account today and you'll see that it no longer exists.

Whether DeAngelo deactivated his Twitter account himself or whether the Rangers forced him to still isn't clear, but many fans online seem to think that the Rangers are the ones pulling the strings on this one.

It's worth pointing out that Twitter actually added a note to DeAngelo's most recent tweet, warning essentially that DeAngelo was spreading Fake News.

In any case... this isn't the first time that DeAngelo has been deactivated...
