James Woods’ girlfriend revealed this week that her actor boyfriend’s Twitter account was locked after he posted a picture purportedly showing a Florida politician in a compromised position.
The conservative actor’s triumphant return to Twitter in February following a 10-month hiatus has proven short-lived.
Sara Miller tweeted on Tuesday that Woods had been “locked out of his account again for sharing ‘intimate media’ of a drunk, naked, puking politician.”

Days earlier Woods had tweeted a photo to his millions of followers allegedly showing failed Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum lying naked on the floor, presumably passed out.
According to Miller, Woods responded to Twitter’s disciplinary action by saying: “Twitter is, of course, protecting Andrew Gillum because no one should ever know how vile these Democrat scum truly are.”

It’s far from the first time Woods’ incendiary tirades against liberals have prompted Twitter to remove him from the platform.
Twitter locked his account in May for tweeting what appeared to be a warning to the “deep state.”
Woods was previously locked out of Twitter in Sept. 2018 for joking about a satirical male feminist meme, which he acknowledged was probably fake.
In 2016, Woods briefly quit the platform out of frustration with alleged censorship.
“This has been a wake-up call for me”
The photograph tweeted out by Woods was obtained and published by a “far-right gay blogger,” LGBT news outlet The Advocate reported on Saturday.
Gillum announced last Sunday he would enter rehab for alcohol abuse after police found him in a hotel room with an overdosed male escort.
“After conversation with my family and deep reflection, I have made the decision to seek help, guidance and enter a rehabilitation facility at this time,” Gillum said in a statement. “This has been a wake-up call for me.”
Photos published by the Daily Mail on March 20 purportedly showed empty beer bottles, bags filled with white substances and pills strewn across the hotel room where police found Gillum.
Gillum, 40, a one-time Tallahassee mayor who has served as a CNN political commentator since January 2019, said last week he would leave public life for the “foreseeable future.”
According to a police report, Miami Beach Police Department officers responded on March 14 to a suspected drug overdose at the Kimpton Epic hotel.
Police said Gillum, who was not arrested, vomited in the bathroom and was too drunk to answer questions. They also said officers found three clear plastic sandwich bags of what appeared to by crystal methamphetamine on the bed and floor.
Another man in the room, Aldo Mejias, 56, had called the paramedics after 30-year-old Travis Dyson of Miami became unresponsive. Mejias later told police he believed Gillum and Dyson, an openly gay male escort and adult film performer, were “under the influence of an unknown substance.”
Paramedics treated Dyson of Miami for an apparent heart attack in the room with Gillum an Mejias on hand, the Miami Herald reported.
Gillum, who had been traveling without his wife, confirmed that he was in the hotel room. But he denied using meth and said he’d had “too much to drink” after celebrating a wedding.

“While I had too much to drink, I want to be clear that I have never used methamphetamines. I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this has caused our movement. I’m thankful to the incredible Miami Beach EMS team for their efforts,” Gillum said. “I will spend the next few weeks with my family and appreciate privacy during this time.”
