“Going to get back on Twitter,” the account tweeted. “It’s been a long time. Pretty sure Instagram is about to kick me off so I need a backup plan. Let’s do this.”
In referencing Instagram, Cutler is alluding to the fact-checking on the platform that has led to some of his posts and stories being flagged as false information. Cutler has been outspoken about issues related to COVID-19 and is adamantly against regulations related to the virus, including masks and the vaccine.

On Friday Cutler revealed that he lost a sponsorship deal with Uber Eats over his vaccine posts.
Lost a commercial with Uber eats partnering with the NFL. Was going to film in LA, "views aren't aligned." Guess they don't like future School board members. Frees up my weekend.
