Twitter is blocking a racial slur that was trending describing South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott.
"Uncle Tim" trended after Scott delivered his GOP rebuttal to President Biden's address to a joint session of Congress.
Scott said the Democratic approach to combating racism is wrong and argued that America is not a racist country. He said "I get called Uncle Tom, and the N-word by by liberals."
A Twitter spokesperson told Fox News the company is blocking the phrase from appearing in Trends.
Scott is the lone Black Republican in the Senate.
