An Australian model is waging a campaign to get gun rights activist Kaitlin Bennett kicked off of Twitter.
In a since-deleted tweet, Kaylen Ward on Tuesday offered to send a nude photo of herself to anyone who “blocks” and “reports” Bennett on the social media platform.

Ward’s campaign appeared to be aimed at getting Bennett banned from Twitter.
“If we all report her maybe her account will disappear,” Ward said in a tweet, which she has not deleted.
Videos showing Ohio University students protesting Bennett during her visit to the school on Monday were shared widely on social media this week.
Bennett claimed she’d been harassed because of her support for President Donald Trump and that “leftists” at the school had started a “riot.”
This is what happens when a Trump supporter goes to a college campus. Leftists at @ohiou started a riot when @Joelpatrick1776 and I showed up, and the @oupolice let it happen. I think @realDonaldTrump should strip funding from universities like this that harbor terrorists. pic.twitter.com/5TMlfdto9O

Ward, 20, made international headlines last month after she said she’d raised $1 million in donations for Australian bushfire relief by selling nude photographs.
She announced in January that she would be sending nudes to anyone who donated at least $10 to organizations actively engaged in fighting the damage caused by raging bushfires in the country.
Since September, the bushfires in Australia killed at least 25 people. Almost 2,000 homes were destroyed, and millions of animals died in the blaze. The fires scorched some 16 million acres of land.
New South Wales Rural Fire Service declared last week that the fires in the region most affected by the disaster had finally been “contained.”
Some accused her of shameless self-promotion.
Ward responded by saying proceeds went directly to charities.
“I raised $1mil for Australia at the sake of my naked body being exposed on the internet to millions and millions of people. That’s a scary feeling to be that vulnerable and exposed to the world. But I did it because I wanted to do something good,” Ward tweeted at the time.
