Twitter lit up again on Monday amid accusations that the site banned a conservative journalist for repeating the same message first tweeted by a liberal actress.

The tweet, sent by Kassy Dillon, a writer for Campus Reform, was directed at Leslie Jones, a black female actress. The message imitated, letter for letter, a tweet originally written by Jones toward another user on the site on March 8, 2015. "You and your friends are bigots," the tweet said. "If you don't like me why the [expletive] do you watch let alone contact me. Kill yourself bigot."

Jones was connected to last week's permanent Twitter ouster of conservative personality Milo Yiannopoulos, a tech editor for Breitbart News who was banned from the site amid allegations that he had bullied the actress over a role she played in the new "Ghostbusters" film. The ban sparked an outcry from users, who noted that Jones often sent messages of her own laden with expletives and racial innuendo that seemed to violate the site's terms of service.

The new message sent by Dillon was originally noted by Mikael Thalen of InfoWars early Monday morning, and had been retweeted more than 1,700 times by noon along with a new hashtag, "#FreeKassy."

In a statement, Twitter declined to comment, saying, "We do not comment on individual accounts, for privacy and security reasons."

The issue comes as the third controversy for the site in a week. Users erupted on Friday after "DNCLeaks" briefly disappeared from the site's "trending" bar, only to return as "DNCLeak" and eventually disappear again. Responding to a question on whether the site had sought to suppress the issue, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey would only say in a tweet, "False."
