Facebook Suspended Us For Posting The Turtleboy Statue Because It’s “Sexual Violence,” Then They Took Down Our Post About It, Then They Took Down Our Post About Them Taking Down Our Post

Our goal at this point is to document the ridiculousness of Facebook every chance we get. You might think we’re fucking around when we say we’re gonna sue Facebook, but we’re not. The world’s largest social media platform, which claims to bring communities together while being the number one medium for sharing information, has been taken over and manipulated by a convicted killer who lives in his mother’s ouse in Fitchburg, and an unemployed cheesehog who makes white women buy her cars. They can literally just mass report anything they want and take down any page. Kevin Lynch and Didi Delgado are more powerful than Mark Zuckerberg. That is insane!!
Here’s today’s episode of Facebook madness:
Yup, one of our accounts was suspended for 30 days because the profile picture is an image of the Turtleboy statue in downtown Worcester for whom the blog is named after. It’s literally an iconic statue in a public square, and it’s not allowed on Facebook because they “don’t allow offers of sexual services,” and it violated their “policies on sexual exploitation and violence.”
Once again, the official policy of Facebook is that human beings make these decisions. Facebook is sticking with the story that everyone they employ is an incompetent moron who thinks a statue in a public square is sexual violence.
We “appealed” it:
But of course no one will read it because no one works at Facebook. They just give you the option to appeal so you’ll think that they employ people to do so. They don’t.
But wait, it gets better.
We posted on our Facebook page, using one of our personal accounts, that images of the Turtleboy statue cannot be shared on Facebook because it violates their standards, and that the account we used was banned for three days:
This post was up for five minutes before it was also pulled down for violating Facebook’s policy on the solicitation of sexual favors:
Ya got that? A post about a post being pulled down for sexual violence was pulled down for sexual violence. And for that the account we used was suspended for 24 hours:
You cannot make this stuff up people. This is the world’s most powerful social media site. A company that Congress believes was manipulated by Russians to the point where it determined the outcome of the Presidential election. Little does Congress know that you don’t have to be a Russian hacker to manipulate Facebook for your own purposes. You can live in your mother’s basement at 48 Cedar Street too.
We’re hardly the only ones either. Google it. Here’s a page with 6.5 million viewers that was taken down in a similar manner. They went through the exact same shit we have, and when Facebook found out about it they said that one of their employees “made a mistake” and they restored the page. Because they have to keep up the lie that human beings at Facebook actually review the millions of anonymous daily reported Facebook posts.
In 2016 Bernie Sanders Facebook pages with over 50,000 were all shut down for 24 hours when “Bros for Hillary” mass reported them all for pornography.
Once again, Bernie Sanders is kind of a big name, so this obviously came to the attention of higher ups at Facebook, and they fixed it and said it was a “mistake.”
But it wasn’t a mistake. It happened because anyone can do this to any page whenever they want. It’s the most underreported story in the media. And as usual, we’re the only ones talking about it.
Anyway, I love the idiots in the comments saying, “you can’t sue Facebook, because it’s their website and they can do whatever they want.” You can always tell who didn’t actually read the blog they’re commenting on. Had they done so they’d know that the terms and conditions are a legally binding contract, and Facebook has agreed not to disrupt your page so long as you’re not violating those conditions. Clearly we have not violated those, and yet they’ve punished us anyway and this has had a financial effect on the company.
This is the easiest slam dunk lawsuit you will ever see. Picture a judge in a California courtroom being confronted with this image:
And asking Facebook’s lawyers which of the terms and conditions it violated.
This is humiliating for them. It’s embarrassing. They’re gonna wanna throw us a bone by restoring our page, but that’s not gonna be enough. We will go to ANY length to make this a national story that everyone knows about.
