White Nationalist Claims Website Photoshopped A Photo Of Him With A Gun—But Twitter Had The Receipts

By Mark Pygas

Tim "Treadstone" Gionet is a 29-year-old internet troll widely known as Baked Alaska on Twitter. Gionet is perhaps most infamous for being removed as a headliner of the pro-Donald Trump 'DeploraBall' back in December 2016 after it emerged that he had a history of anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi tweets about the “Jewish question.” 

Gionet also led a boycott of Netflix over their new show Dear White People, which Gionet labelled as an "anti-white show that promotes white genocide."

On Wednesday, Gionet took to Twitter to accuse AJ+ of photoshopping one of his images to appear as if he was holding a gun. He went on to claim that the video that featured the image put him in danger, and threatened the news outlet with a lawsuit.
