CJ Pearson, the pre-teen, conservative wunderkind who became a YouTube star on the right for his rants against President Barack Obama, had a fresh reason Wednesday to rail against the White House.
Pearson, 13, posted an image to Twitter that suggested Obama’s official Twitter account had blocked him:
Well, this sucks. pic.twitter.com/S9jESl5ybi

The alleged Twitter snub came days after Pearson racked up another viral video hit. Pearson’s most recent screed was about the invitation Obama extended to Ahmed Mohamed, the Muslim 14-year-old who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to class at his Texas high school, to visit the White House.
“When cops are gunned down, you don’t invite them to the White House. You never did,” he said in the video. “But when a Muslim kid builds a clock, come on by. What is this world you’re living in?”
The White House’s assistant press secretary, Frank Benenati, responded by stating that the President’s Twitter account doesn’t block any users:
Public Service Announcement: Nobody is or has ever been blocked from the @POTUS twitter account
