Hi, I was just wondering why it appears @LossThief is liking and spreading transphobic Japanese tweets on their Twitter feed? I've seen more than a few that deadname the character Lily from Zombieland Saga as well as refer to the character as a boy posing as a girl

Examples:

It seems really tone-deaf to me to spread and support these kinds of tweets.

Hi. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. The two tweets you screencapped are both fanart tweets that I'd seen come across my feed at some point. I can't read Japanese, so I didn't realize they were deadnaming Lily when I liked/RT'd them. I apologize for making people upset, and I appreciate you letting me know what happened. If you spotted anything else I RT'd that is doing the same, please let me know. [/url]
