Don’t criticize #China or express support for law enforcement to @espn. It makes them real mad @Outkick pic.twitter.com/WJDxrotUBD— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) July 10, 2020

At least one political candidate is accusing Hawley of violating Senate rules.
Let's get this story right:— Lindsey Simmons (@LynzforCongress) July 12, 2020
Senator Hawley violated Senate rules when he blasted a @wojespn's email on his campaign Twitter account.
He did it to silence his own constituents--a display of muscle that if he can end Woj's job, he can end yours too. #FreeWoj
Many around the NBA also tweeted out support with #FreeWoj
