Jackie Hill Perry’s Twitter
Jackie Hill Perry permanently deactivated her Twitter account in May 2022. The events that led to Jackie Hill leaving Twitter started when she posted a video of some verses she created out of the beat of one of Kendrick Lamar’s recent songs. Her lyrics were tagged racist as she talked about white boys stealing her body and trying to kill her.
Following the release of this video, she posted a tweet where she agreed with one of Louis Farrakhan’s submissions. Farrakhan is well-known as a racist and the leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI) the largest Black Nationalist Organization in the United States. Nation of Islam is a religious movement that promotes black supremacy and is prejudiced against white race. When Jackie received criticism for her support of Louis Farrakhan, she tweeted about how the opinions of the public opened her to new people and new ideas. She also agreed to be interested in what people had to say on the matter. Her final tweet, however, confirmed that Twitter had worn her out and she would only be active on her Instagram account. Her last post was made on May 22, 2022.
Allegation against Jackie Hill Perry
In August 2019, Jackie Hill Perry posted a picture on Instagram calling one of Bethel Music artists, Jenn Johnson, her friend. This caused many of Jackie Hill’s followers to attack her for being sinfully yoked with false preachers. Also, her invitation to speak at Answers in Genesis’ women’s conference got revoked.
Surprisingly, Jackie made another post on Instagram justifying her actions and Jenn Johnson. She explained that she was not judgmental of others where the ministry of Christ was involved. In her opinion, the Church of God was multifaceted and complicated, so she had to be open-minded. Even though doctrines, spiritual gifts, worship styles, and so on varied, Christians were joined together by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jackie Hill declared that some preachers who were ‘theologically sound’ were irrationally complicit in discrimination.
Jackie Hill did not stop there. She made a Twitter post explaining her activities of the previous week. After a report of how she had shared a platform with Bethel Music and posted photos of the worship set, clips of her teachings, and a clip calling Jenn Johnson her friend, she expressed shock at the reactions she got. She declared that she was not writing to appease folks who made a ministry out of calling people out but wanted to clear the air for genuinely confused people. She agreed to be grieved and concerned about the swiftness of the way people judged others based on their opinions of them. She also said there was a difference between a false teaching and a false teacher.

Even when the Bible constantly showed Christ as one who related with and loved sinners, Christians found it hard to do the same.
