Hell hath no fury like a woma scorned. That's one lesson that Nicholas Fuentes learned the really hard way!
If there's one thing that the internet has taught us, it's that one should always think before they type. Letting your tongue run wild online can result in a lashing out of its own, and there have been too many people who have had the opportunity to get schooled for their poor choice of words.
It's an important lesson that conservative media personality and host of 'America First' Nicholas J. Fuentes was handed. The co-host of the 'Nationalist Review' podcast openly identifies as an avid supporter of the alt-right and even goes to the length of spreading those views across multiple media platforms.
But back in 2018, Fuentes stepped straight into muddy waters after Tweeting a rather controversial statement. After being banned by Twitch.tv for spreading a hateful message with several other political commentators, he stuck his foot in his mouth yet again when he tweeted: "Women shouldn't say bad words. RT if you agree."

I’m doing a story on men that have never pleasured a woman sexually.
May I use your tweets?
The immediate backlash that Fuentes received was remarkable. The first blow came from fellow journalist Kaj-Erik Eriksen, who flat-out mocked the insensitivity that the alt-right show host had expressed. But his response isn't the one that took the Tweet and ripped it to shreds.
Several women lashed out at Fuentes, adding a slew of curse words to tell the conservative show host to rethink his Tweet. The virality of the post seemed to be a little too much for Fuentes because he ended up deleting the original Tweet. Thankfully, the replies to the Tweet didn't disappear along with Fuentes's confidence.
It's a good learning lesson. That saying 'look before you leap' speaks volumes in this situation, which is why people often caution us to think carefully before we speak. Fuentes didn't get the memo, but hopefully, this incident should remind him to be careful the next time!
