Blogger claims Facebook suspended him for 24 hours for defending Milo Yiannopoulos in a post
James Delingpole writes (on Breitbart ) that he was suspended from Facebook for 24 hours for posting a piece that defends Milo Yiannopoulos.
It’s not clear if he linked to that page or included it inline. The latter sounds more likely. But he did not provide a link to a page showing what had written to defend his claims. This is the first I have heard of 24 hours suspensions on Facebook.
Nevertheless, the story of the suspension is disturbing, as is this story about the permanent removal of Polandball.
And then there is a blog called “Zelo Street” with more to say about this, which I can’t make sense of.
Milo's account on Facebook still appears to work normally. But he had been banned from Twitter in 2016 over his behavior with respect to actress Leslie Jones. Milo linked to Delingpole's Breitbart story on the suspension today on Facebook himself.
