Facebook is silencing users for a reason too absurd to believe

Online censorship is a growing problem.

The public square is largely digital today, so Big Tech platforms wield significant power.

And Facebook is silencing users for a reason too absurd to believe.

Pop singer Lizzo is supposedly being protected by the powers that be at Facebook.

Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, was supposedly “fat-shamed” on social media, which led to a tearful breakdown.

And censors at the company purportedly removed negative comments from her page.

TMZ reports:

“Facebook is stepping in to scrub hateful comments directed at Lizzo from its social media platforms . . . and some trolls are even getting their accounts removed. Sources at Facebook tell TMZ . . . the company’s already removed a number of comments left on Lizzo’s recent Facebook and Instagram posts, and FB will continue reviewing reports of hateful comments on an ongoing basis. As we reported . . . Lizzo broke down on video over the weekend, crying over being the subject of fat-shaming and racist comments.”

Online personal attacks are shameful, but unfortunately that’s the cost of being a public figure.

Republicans are treated savagely not only by anonymous users online, but by the so-called “mainstream” media.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was essentially called fat to her face, and Tim Scott and other black conservatives who spoke at the Republican National Convention were called a “minstrel show.”

Perhaps compounding the attacks on Lizzo is the fact that she is a big proponent of the body positivity movement and has posed for glamour shots in bathing suits and lingerie.

Lizzo recently collaborated on a song with rapper Cardi B, who came to her defense:

Ironically, Cardi B has engaged in her own online slander, levying scurrilous charges against conservative commentator Candace Owens.

Harassment against Lizzo or any other public figure is regrettable, but there’s a clear double standard on who gets protected and who doesn’t.
