Facebook temporarily suspended – then restored — conservative commentator Candace Owens’s account this week after she posted about the “liberal supremacy” threat to black Americans.
In a statement to Fox News, Facebook said they reinstated her account a day later after determining the post wasn’t in violation of community standards.
“We’ve restored Ms. Owens’ post and removed the block on her account after confirming that the content didn’t violate our policies,” a Facebook spokesperson said Friday.
On Thursday, Owens, who is black, posted a statement along with statistics showing the poverty rates among African-Americans, whites and African-Americans who are married. The statement read: “Black America must wake up to the great liberal hoax. White supremacy is not a threat. Liberal supremacy is.”
