Facebook bans rapper Lil B for ‘hate speech’
American rapper Lil B has been banned from Facebook for 30 days after violating the website’s hate speech policies. “Found out Facebook banned me for 30 days becuase I was talking about white people,” he wrote on Monday (Oct. 9) on Twitter, and a representative for Facebook confirmed he’s been suspended following a violation of the social media’s hate speech policies.
We don’t know what Lil B said, as the offending posts have since been deleted from the site. But while it’s uncertain when the ban went into effect, the rapper had also previously tweeted about it on Oct. 4, writing, “Everyone let the world know that lil b Facebook has been blocked and I can’t log in! Please let Facebook know I’m only spreading love!”
Moreover, it’s also not Lil B’s first time being banned from the social network. In 2014, the rapper claimed he was banned for 30 days for posts related to racial issues, sex trafficking and more. In that occasion the rapper tweeted “WOW HAHAHAA AYYY YALL FACEBOOK JUST BANNED ME!!! HELP ME GET MY PROFILE BACK! I KEPT IT TO REAL!!!!!!! I GOT OVER 500k LIKES.”
