After Facebook banned several prominent personalities for posting things they didn’t agree with and acting too much like Nazis, the company was forced to ban themselves for acting too much like Nazis.
“Facebook has been censoring opposition speech, intimidating users, and generally acting like fascist scum,” a company spokesman Hans Gobbels said, “so as a result, we are shutting down.”
Many users were shocked to hear of what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg called, “Facebook’s Final Solution” to end fascism but others were supportive of the decision.
“I mean, at least they’re being consistent. If fascism is the problem, then banning people you don’t agree with is part of the problem,” Facebook user Billy Jenkins said.
Facebook had recently removed Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Louis Farrakhan from the platform.
“Facebook has fallen into a viscous cycle of banning people that eventually, it caught up with them and they banned themselves.”
It’s unclear whether this is a temporary ban or if it is a long-term solution. “Is it just Facebook jail or a permanent unpersoning?” Jenkins tweeted.
