‘The Scoop’ Co-Founders Permanently Banned From Facebook For “Violating Community Standards”
This week, both co-founders of The Scoop, Steeve Strange and Cameron Shizznit, had their personal profiles permanently banned from Facebook.
Upon trying to log in to our respective accounts, we both received this message:
When we clicked ‘Go To Help Center’ to submit an appeal. This is the response that we received:
This message let us know that our ‘Facebook account was disabled because it did not follow our community standards.”
Facebook also confirmed that “this decision can’t be reversed.”
The only warning that Facebook issued to us was about our new group that Facebook town down called ‘Patriots Against Joe Biden.’
Apparently, peaceful law-abiding groups/pages that are anti-Joe Biden do not comply with Facebook’s “community standards.”
It is clear from this warning and takedown that Facebook considers people who don’t agree with Biden’s policies are “hateful,” “threatening,” or “obscene.”
Another group that was created by The Scoop was called ‘Patriot Party,‘ The Scoop co-founders were the only 2 admins of the group, so that group with over 67,000 members will no longer be able to be accessed.
Luckily, The Scoop still has other admins who have access to our ‘The Scoop’ Facebook page that has over 200,000 followers. However, the ban of our two personal accounts will no doubt make our ability to post on The Scoop’s page very difficult.
Facebook appears to have gone on a purge yesterday with banning accounts. If you search ‘Facebook disabled’ on Twitter, you will see thousands of tweets like these from over the past week:
Anyone else randomly get kicked off Facebook? I have no idea what could’ve caused it but they disabled my account.

This just happened to me yesterday afternoon!! Someone on here @backup_support messaged me claiming they could help but scammed me. I have tried everything to get in touch with @Facebook, I don’t want to lose 10+ years of pictures 😭

Weirdly enough, our personal accounts on Instagram have not been affected, except for a serious shadow ban that restricted our accounts reach, lowering our reach from 2 million profiles a week down to just 300,000 in less than 1 months time,.
You can follow us on Instagram here.
Facebook was a major source of funding for The Scoop that we have now completely lost. We also humbly ask if you can to donate to us on Patreon while we are transitioning to alternative free-speech platforms during these dark times.
We will not bow to this social media censorship! Fighting back is the only way to make us stronger in the long run.
Stay tuned, you all are going to love what is coming next!
