Krewe of Nyx Deactivates Twitter After Liking ‘White Power’ Tweet

Following a tweet that they were accepting applicants for next year, the Krewe of Nyx quickly deactivated their Twitter after favoriting a tweet “on accident,” according to the Krewe’s Lawyer. Captured by Reddit user @cityofnewlaurens, the official Krewe of Nyx Twitter account favorited an inappropriate tweet in response to accepting new rider applications for 2021. View the tweet below. 

 

A screen recording of the tweet was also captured and can be viewed here, and the original “White Power” tweet from Twitter user @Rbreua can still be viewed on Twitter here

The Krewe of Nyx, an all-female Mardi Gras Krewe, has lost many of their rider after Julie Lea – Captain – posted an image with the hashtag “#AllLivesMatter” on the official Krewe of Nyx social media post. 

Lea apologized for the post, claiming she was unaware of the meaning of “All lives matter.” Since her apology, protests calling for her resignation took place, with over 50 members gathering outside the club’s headquarters earlier this summer. Lea did not resign. Read more about the call for resignation from Nyx Lieutenants here.
