Anthony Scaramucci said Friday Twitter locked him out of his account for "fat-shaming" his former boss, President Donald Trump Thursday night.

The former White House communications director, who has been locked in a war of words with Trump for the past week or so, told Axios he got his time-out notification at about 8:55 a.m. Friday, telling him he was locked out for violating Twitter's rules, and that he would not be able to post for another seven hours and 40 minutes. 

He sent Axios a screenshot of the notice, which reporter Jonathan Swan posted on Twitter. 

During his rally in New Hampshire Thursday night, Trump ridiculed a protester, telling his supporters that the "guy's got a serious weight problem. Go home, start exercising."

Scaramucci posted a video of Trump's comment and tweeted about the president's comments "Said the fattest President since William Howard Taft…" The tweet was Scaramucci's last before Twitter put him on hold. 

“I should have said [Trump] is the largest-proportioned President," Scaramucci told Axios.  My bad.”

Twitter, in an email to The New York Post, confirmed that Scaramucci had been "suspended, not locked."

"The account is suspended, not locked,” a rep said. “The user is temporarily locked out of their account for violating our abusive behavior policy."

“If a Tweet was found to be in violation of our rules, and has yet to be deleted by the person who Tweeted it, we will hide it behind a notice. The account will remain locked until the Tweet is removed.”

As of Friday afternoon, Scaramucci's tweet was still online.
