People Are Furious With Twitter Over Trending Hashtag #QuestionsForAProstitute

By TheBlast Staff

The hashtag #QuestionsForAProstitute started trending today on Twitter and many users are enraged over the "sexist and vile" way social media is treating sex workers.

The trending topic comes just over a week after Twitter started enforcing expanded rules cracking down on hate speech.

A handful of users are jokingly tweeting out questions about money, condoms and Donald Trump, but many more are raking Twitter over the coals for allowing what they're calling a "misogynistic" and "degrading" hashtag that turns vulnerable human beings into punchlines.

Several women who identify as sex workers are among those tweeting their disgust at the hashtag.

The Blast has reached out to Twitter for comment — so far, no word back.

FYI, if you or someone you know is a victim of sex trafficking here is the number for the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888.
