Old tweets from the “warlord” of the radical Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle, Washington created an ironic twist to the narrative as they were uncovered on social media.

Seattle based rapper Solomon “Raz” Simone has essentially declared himself and some friends the new police of the encampment covering six blocks of downtown Seattle. Videos and photos have shown the 30-year-old activist posing with weapons and patrolling the “cop-free” area.

But Simone is now under fire for old homophobic tweets found on his Twitter account which have left him on the defensive.

**Warning: Graphic language**

Simone was soon denying the tweets were his, claiming his account was hacked much like MSNBC’s Joy Reid did when she claimed in 2018 that anonymous hackers were behind the offensive posts on her old blog.

But the seemingly legitimate tweets kept coming as the rapper’s social media history was revisited.

Twitter users pointed out why Simone’s excuse of being hacked did not hold water.

“Never have I ever. I’m from Seattle. I definitely never tweeted that. That would be the dumbest thing I could ever do,” he tweeted claiming, “I wasn’t even on twitter in 2010.”

Some of Simone’s other tweets with offensive content have apparently remained on his account.

The hip hop artists and leftists organizer claimed he was “not a Terrorist Warlord” after President Trump’s condemnation of the lawlessness in a tweet saying, “Domestic Terrorists have taken over Seattle, run by Radical Left Democrats, of course. LAW & ORDER!”

But a video posted on Twitter this week showed Simone assaulting a ­graffiti artist in the so-called CHAZ area.

Twitter users mocked Simone’s claims of being hacked and many wondered how long it would be before the “warlord” would be “canceled.”
