Louis Farrakhan was among a group of prominent figures banned from Facebook and Instagram today and Snoop Dogg is not having it
The Nation Of Islam leader joined right-wing provocateurs Alex Jones, Milo Yiannapoulis and Laura Loomer in getting the boot from the social network for spreading "dangerous ideology.
“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”
Snoop Dogg raged at the decision to include Farrakhan on the banned list in an Instagram post.
"Facebook and Instagram banned Minister Louis Farrakhan. I want to know for what," Snoop said. "All he ever do is tell the truth. But y'all gon' ban him, though? Alright, what if we ban y'all? What if we stop fuckin' with y'all? The fuck y'alll gon' ban Minister Louis Farrakhan? For puttin' truth out there.
"I stand with him. Ban me, mothafucka. Ban me. Because I'm gon' keep posting his shit, I'mma keep putting Minister Louis Farrakhan out there," he continued.
Farrakhan has long been criticized for his anti-Semitic views and in 2018 one of his videos was removed from Facebook because he referred to Jews as termites. Facebook owns Instagram.
