UPDATE: This story has been corrected to note James Woods intends to sue the Democratic National Committee, not Twitter.
Actor James Woods says he is suing the Democratic National Committee after the group apparently coordinated with Twitter to censor his account.
Internal Twitter documents released by Elon Musk revealed that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) ordered Twitter to remove his tweets for speaking out on the 2020 Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
Fox News reported Friday evening that Woods announced his intention on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
"I can guarantee you one thing more than anything else you'll ever hear in your life: I will be getting a lawyer. I will be suing the Democratic National Committee no matter what," he said.
He added that cancel culture ruined his career and he does not care whether he wins or loses.
“Whether I win or lose, I am going to stand up for the rights that every American – not a so-called celebrity. I'm not a celebrity -- I'm hardly recognizable anymore because my career has been destroyed by these very people.
“And I will sue. And I'm hoping other people will sue. And if it turns out there are a lot of us on this list where the DNC targeted us, then I will quote the immortal words of Joseph Welch when he attacked [Wisconsin Senator] Joseph McCarthy for the enemies list he had – 'At long last or have you no shame?’’
He considers it as a compliment that the Democratic Party chose to go after him personally, but he laments the loss of his career.
"I think it is a compliment, but, it's a big price to pay. It's not a lot of fun. I loved my career for 50 years. I was happy to be an award-winning and honored and appreciated actor, and I miss my career," he said.
Woods later thanked Musk for fighting for free speech.
“Thank you, @elonmusk, for giving back to all Americans, and voices around the world, the most precious of gifts - free and open speech,” he tweeted. “I admire you and I salute you, sir.”
