Snoop Dogg blasts Facebook for ban of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan

Facebook has caused a backlash after announcing the ban of Nation of Islam leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan.

On May 2, the social media giant announced that Minister Farrakhan would be banned for using anti-Semitic language. After the ban was announced, Snoop Dogg shared his displeasure with a post on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook.

“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 f—‘ with y’all?” He continued. “The f– y’all gon’ ban Minister Louis Farrakhan? For puttin’ truth out there.”

Minister Farrakhan has remained a powerful voice in the hip-hop community for decades. Several weeks ago, the Nation of Islam leader spoke at the homegoing service of Nipsey Hussle.

Along with Farrakhan, others who were banned on Facebook include right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, and right-wing media personalities Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Joseph Watson.
