Actor Samuel L. Jackson’s homophobic, anti-Trump tweet did not violate Twitter’s community guidelines, according to an email the social networking service sent to Jackson.

The email said that people reported his tweet about the president on Trump’s birthday as offensive.

“We have investigated the reported content and could not identify any violations of the Twitter Rules or applicable law. Accordingly, we have not taken any action at the time,” Twitter said in the email to Jackson.

Jackson tweeted a photo for President Trump’s birthday suggesting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker of the House Ryan, and the president’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani would perform oral sex upon the president. (RELATED: SAMUEL L JACKSON MAKES HOMOPHOBIC TRUMP BIRTHDAY JOKE)

This is not the first time Jackson has received notifications from Twitter that people have flagged his content as inappropriate.
