Patti Labelle’s Son Is Allegedly Running A Trump-Supporting Twitter Account

Patti Labelle’s Son Is Allegedly Running A Trump-Supporting Twitter Account

It seems that Patti Labelle’s son, William Holte, is the face behind a Trumpsupporting Twitter account. On November 8th Dean Browning, a Republican politician who lost his race for Congress earlier this year tweeted

“What Trump built in 4 years, Biden will destroy in 4 months.”

After receiving criticism from an individual on Twitter who said that President Trump ruined everything Obama did, Dean Browning responded by tweeting he’s a gay black man, and Obama “did nothing for him.”

“I’m a black gay guy and I can personally say that Obama did nothing for me, my life only changed a little bit and it was for the worse. Everything is so much better under Trump though. I feel respected – which I never do when democrats are involved.”

Following his tweet, many people started to speculate that Dean Browning, who is not gay or black, meant to send that tweet from his fake burner account instead of his actual Twitter account. The burner account in question is @DanPurdy322, which was created in October of this year. The account has recently been suspended but while it was up it regularly interacted with Dean Browning and his tweets.

Following his alleged Twitter slip-up, Dean Browning claimed that the tweet he sent out was from a fan’s DM and he didn’t mean to tweet the message.

Dean Browning also shared a video of a man he claims is the real Dan Purdy and who is behind the DanPurdy322 Twitter account.

It didn’t take the internet long to figure out that Dan Purdy more than likely doesn’t exist and the person who is claiming to be him is actually William Holte, the son of Patti LaBelle. Twitter users were also able to find William Holte’s Facebook page, which is under the username ‘Byl Holte’, and discovered that he is a self-proclaimed “anti-feminist TV critic.”
