Jordan Peterson Quits Twitter, Says Platform’s Design ‘Dangerously Insane’ After Torrent of Woke Vitriol

Dr. Jordan Peterson has quit Twitter after facing backlash for declaring that plus-size Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Yumi Nu is “not beautiful.”

“Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that,” Peterson tweeted Monday afternoon in response to a New York Post tweet about Nu, who is featured this year on a Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover.

Peterson was subsequently attacked for his comment, with one Twitter user writing, “‘authoritarian’? Chunky women on magazine covers? You sound like a parody of you.” The account owner, known as “Vaush,” is a socialist YouTuber frequently mocked for his hot takes on lowering the age of consent and child pornography.

Peterson responded, stating, “It’s a conscious progressive attempt to manipulate & retool the notion of beauty, reliant on the idiot philosophy that such preferences are learned & properly changed by those who know better,” and he included links to two academic papers on attractiveness.
