Facebook Suspended Candace Owens For A Post Reading ‘White Supremacy Is Not A Threat’

Posted 5.17.2019 by Steeve Strange

Conservative commentator Candace Owens, widely known for starting the #BLEXIT (Black exit from the Democratic Party) movement, was suspended by Facebook for 7 days.

Owens, 30, took to Twitter to inform her followers that she had been suspended from Facebook for “posting that white supremacy is not a threat to black America, as much as father absence and & liberal policies that incentivize it, are.”

Owens followed up her initial tweet by calling out Facebook for allowing “every post that has falsely and horribly accused @realDonaldTrump of white supremacy to remain on its platform. But when a black woman begins discussing the TRUTH—which is that liberal policies have systematically ruined black homes—they censor.”

Several hours after tweeting about her Facebook ban, Owens tweeted out another tweet let her followers know that Facebook had restored her page and ended the suspension.

If Owens receives another suspension from Facebook, she will be at risk of having her Facebook page permanently deleted.

Earlier this month, Facebook permanently banned conservative commentators Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos.

A few days ago, The Trump White House launched an online portal for individuals to report claims of politically motivated censorship by social media companies.

If I were a betting man, which I am, I’d bet that Owens will be filing a report with the White House portal.
