Facebook has informed Karoline Leavitt, MAGA Inc. spokesperson, that her Facebook page, which has 12,000 followers, is being deleted. The warning came soon after Leavitt declared her intention to join MAGA Inc., a political action committee supporting Donald Trump’s candidacy.
Leavitt received a statement from Facebook accusing her of running a page that “violates our community standards.” Following her appeal, Facebook told her that her page was slated for deletion.
Leavitt stated in a tweet that the event happened barely a week after she enrolled in the Trump-supporting PAC.
“I just got a message from Facebook saying they’re planning to DELETE my official account…one week after becoming part of the @MAGAIncWarRoom as Spokeswoman,” Leavitt said on Twitter. “Strange timing, Meta? Please explain!”
Donald Trump was banned from the site for more than two years following the platform, alongside other internet behemoths, moved to blacklist the president in the aftermath of the events of January 6, 2021.
After a two-year suspension, Facebook removed Trump’s ban on both Instagram and its main platform in January, and the former President posted his first new post on Facebook in almost two years last month.
YouTube, which is owned by Google and similarly barred Trump after January 6, restored Trump’s access immediately after Facebook.
Both of these reinstatements were done just months after Twitter reinstated the former president’s access to the site following the company’s purchase by Republican-voting billionaire Elon Musk.
Trump, who founded the TRUTH Social Twitter alternative after being blacklisted by Silicon Valley, has failed to post any new tweets since he regained access to the network.
