Facebook and Twitter Remove a Video Posted by Trump and Some Call It Censorship

President Trump recently posted a video online where he mad some questionable comments regarding the pandemic, the virus in general and whether or not children are “immune” to the disease.Facebook and Twitter decided this misinformation could be dangerous and even cause harm to those that believe it and they quickly removed the video from their respective platforms.

This whole situation has stirred up quite a debate about freedom of speech and just where we should draw the line with it, with many feeling this is liberal censorship of the president while others feel it’s not about politics but more about the general safety of the people that might believe the video’s statements.

Let’s take a look at some of the reactions from Twitter.

Another reason given for the video’s removal, honestly this part doesn’t feel any worse than any other political ad these days.

They even locked the accounts, not sure if this has been undone yet.

Lol when did caring about our children become political…

Yea sure numb nuts punish them for looking out for public safety.

Some people are applauding Facebook and Twitter for their quick action and response to the video.

At least it’s opening up some discussion about the 1st amendment I guess.

Anyone that disagrees with your beliefs must hate America right? seems legit…

It’s a tricky situation because yes you have freedom of speech but too many people just believe whatever Trump says so they can’t exactly allow a misinformation campaign…great time to debate with each other , too bad no one can do that without hating each other.

No one is going to boycott shit, we all need to argue with each other online too badly.

Sure, as you tweet this on Twitter…

What are your thoughts?

Censorship or a good choice by Facebook and Twitter?
