Diamond and Silk: No one from Facebook has spoken to us about being labeled ‘unsafe’

As we and others reported earlier, Facebook, the social media giant once dubbed the “world’s most dangerous censor,” told Fox News they had spoken with Diamond and Silk after declaring them “unsafe” for the “community.”  The popular pro-Trump duo, however, said, not so fast.

Sadly, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act has been interpreted by a federal judge to mean that companies like Facebook are immune from legal action for censorship.

Perhaps, but keep in mind that many of those hearing Zuckerberg’s testimony have accepted campaign donations from Facebook’s PAC, so it’s a bit like two wolves discussing dinner with a sheep…

Some, like this Twitter user, said they would be deleting their Facebook account:

Then there was this guy, who offered to take the duo out to lunch.

One person went right to the heart of the matter:

It certainly seems that’s the case…
