Have You Been Blocked By Travis Tritt Yet? Here’s How You May Have Triggered The Country Singer

If you’ve spent a little time on social media, especially if you’ve engaged in political discourse, you’ve likely been blocked at some point. It’s a little more surprising, though, when you find you’ve been blocked by someone you’ve never interacted with — or perhaps never heard of.

When Travis Tritt made headlines for canceling shows at venues that enforce COVID-19 safety protocols, a lot of people were surprised to learn that they fell into that category. So, why had Tritt blocked people who had not tweeted about him or to him, some of whom weren’t even sure they’d ever heard of him before?

How did so many people catch Tritt’s attention without putting in any effort? At some point, they likely tweeted a hashtag that upset him.

In fact, Tritt’s blocking spree dates back more than a year — it’s just that a lot of the people he’s blocked apparently had no reason to notice until now.

As reported in September of last year, Tritt picked up an idea from Trump-supporting actor James Woods. The plan was to search the hashtag #resist on Twitter each day, and block 20 accounts that came up in the search.

If he’s been doing this for a year, that’s thousands of accounts blocked — regardless of whether they’ve ever interacted with him, or whether the users even know who he is. So, if you’ve been blocked by Tritt and are confused about just what you did to end up on his radar, the answer is probably that at some point you tweeted either “#resist” or another hashtag or phrase that he found upsetting.
