Destroy Status not working on retweet of blocked user


I am attempting to remove retweets programatically… I get a status_id usually and call api.destroyStatus() in an API python.

this fails, and states the user has blocked you.

I read somewhere you need to instead pass the Retweet-status-id… so I see a property called ‘retweeted_status_id’ … that returns a ‘that page does not exist’ error…

am I stuck with these retweets?
