Last week it was reported that Facebook has limited the page of the pro-Trump YouTube sensations Diamond and Silk.
In a post on their Facebook page, Diamond and Silk, an internet commentating duo that became popular during the 2016 election for their vocal support of President Trump, stated that after much deliberation, Facebook has deemed their content and videos “unsafe to the community.”
The censorship of Diamond and Silk, who Facebook categorized as “unsafe for the community,” was repeatedly cited as an example of the social network’s anti-conservative bias by Senators and Congressmen over the past two days, as Mark Zuckerberg answered questions from lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
But, it looks like that was just a beginning. Now, Facebook has suspended conservative comedian Terrence K. Williams for posting screenshots of hate mail he received from liberals.
For the second time in a week, Facebook has suspended a conservative user for posting screenshots of abuse they received on the platform. Shortly after the suspension of columnist and editor Jamie Glazov, who posted screenshots of threats he received, comedian Terrence K. Williams has been temporarily suspended for posting screenshots of abuse and ridicule he received from liberals on the platform.
Here are the examples of the threats Williams received :
And, the 24-hour suspension from posting to Facebook.
In a statement for Breitbart, Williams said: “I don’t post all my threats anymore because I fear that Facebook may suspend my account and I have a large platform and people that look forward to my messages every day and I’m going on tour so I don’t want to break any violations and throw everything away so I don’t post all my stuff all the time. Facebook said they would ban me permanently if I kept posting screenshots of the death threats.”
Williams stated that despite multiple reports drawing Facebook’s attention to the screenshots and the abuse he received, Facebook failed to act: “Facebook said that they reviewed the screenshots and said that none of the threats violated Facebook’s guidelines.”
Breitbart News asked Williams if he felt that Facebook was specifically targeting minority conservatives such as himself and YouTube stars Diamond and Silk who have alleged that their Facebook page reach has been limited by the social media platform. Williams said, “I do believe that Facebook is targeting not only conservatives but they’re really targeting minority conservatives such as myself and Diamond and Silk, they have a million followers and their posts are only reaching eight people are you serious? And Facebook does the same thing to me, I lose followers every day and I do not believe that my fans are going to my page to unfollow me.”
So Facebook feels that the ugly abusive threats posted DO NOT break their rules, BUT posting screenshots of those same, violate their rules?? So in other words, you are free to abuse and threaten someone, but the abused CAN NOT bring attention to it. It is sad how Facebook treat this man after those threats! If this doesn’t prove the left’s never-ending hypocrisy nothing does or ever will.
I think it is time for a lawsuit by conservatives in mass against Facebook for their discrimination!
