All major social networks on the web banned former U.S. President Donald Trump earlier this year after the Republican showed a certain appreciation for the protesters who violently invaded the nation’s Capitol. Since then, Trump no longer has a Facebook profile, but it seems that the ban is more comprehensive than we imagined and netizens can no longer even publish a video in which the politician’s voice can be heard.
After receiving complaints from the activist NGO Media Matters for America, the platform removed the clip from an old interview with Trump participation that had been published by her daughter-in-law, Lara Trump. Lara posted, last Tuesday (30th), a screenshot of an email that would have been sent to her by the Facebook moderation team. In the message, moderator Katelyn confirms that the content has been banned and also warned that future violations of this type will be punished.
“We are contacting you to inform you that we have removed the content from Lara Trump’s Facebook page that featured President Trump speaking. According to the blocking that we put on Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, the posting of new content posted with Donald Trump’s voice will be removed and will result in additional account limitations, ”explains the email. It was not clear, however, whether the rule is only valid for Trump’s family or any user of the social network.
It is worth noting that Facebook is not the only social network to enforce a severe ban against Trump supporters – Twitter has also excluded multiple accounts affiliated with the Republican who were dedicated to “advertising” the former president, disseminating his statements . Zuckerberg’s company has been working to mitigate conspiracy theory groups QAnon, whose main thesis is based precisely on Trump’s defense.
