Rapper Snoop Dogg, left, took to Instagram to strongly disagree with Facebook over the banning of Minister Louis Farrakhan, right. In a profanity-laced video, Snoop invited Mark Zuckerberg to ban him from Instagram. He also suggested a boycott of Facebook and Instagram. "What if we ban y'all?" he asked.

Minister Farrakhan was banned along with conservative bloggers Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, Paul Joseph Watson and others who are deemed "dangerous individuals and organizations."

Facebook explained the banishments were necessary because Farrakhan and the others were "dangerous individuals... that promote or engage in violence and hate."

"We've always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology," Facebook said in a statement on Thursday. "The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today."

Minister Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam which is considered a hate group. The Southern Poverty Law Center cited Farrakhan as "deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT."

    Lmao @ that pic ?

  • AmericanDream

    I’d never understand the appeal of this Farrakhan character . I mean what has he ever done of substance except being an agitator? He’s the light skin equivalent of rush Limbaugh and those other screaming right wing degenerates .

    Anybody can get on their soap box and call out whites , I doubt that blacks need help in that department . So this Farrakhan guy has always left me dubious

  • Luvi

    What in the country fried Sunday church chitlins kinda suit is snoop wearing?

  • Whirl

    I’m not caping for any group that openly disparages women leading men. Causes all kinds of problems on fronts like politics, on the job, and in corporate America. Shouldn’t have taken this long.

  • Whirl

    It’s 2019. When are we gonna be done with belief systems? Ughhhhhhh

  • Karen Brady

    Snoop's suit. Must have been rummaging around in Steve Harvey's basement.

    LOUD azz country mo fo at my job dresses like this every day.

  • Yoni7

    Although not as highly regarded as Mr. Farrakhan, I can see them going for Shaun King and Tariq Elite next. Maybe even DL Hughley too.

  • Karen Brady

    lol

    Is that a Steve Harvey suit?

    #NasEtherVoice NE-GRO PLEASE! Snoop needs to stop. I respect the music he gave us (up until 2004 at least), but he a muppet now. Get back in that kitchen with Martha and make some snickerdoodle cookies!

  • Naomi

    Snickerdoodle cookies sound SO good right now.

  • T865!

    They banned him to keep it from looking like a full out right wing fringe band.. I don’t listen to Farrakhan so I have no idea what he talks about. I didn’t even listen to him eulogize Nipsey?????

  • Whirl

    Exactly. That may work for him but it doesn’t benefit me as a woman with them constantly trying to put a woman “back in her place”.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    How did I miss the Choppa suit lol

  • Hair Lova ??

    Here’s the issue. It’s past what Farrakhan stands for. It’s about freedom of speech. So now we no longer have the right to speak and express ourselves freely?

    But 45 gets to rant and rave about non sense on Twitter daily? Please

    Hope it ain't Lake Death (Lake Lanier) whew shyt !!!

  • U gon learn today

    The argument is that Farrakhan’s speech is antisemitic, racist and anti-LGBT. I get both sides...if we demand that these social media sites shut down the platforms of racists like madman conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, then how do we justify Farrakhan’s brand of black nationalism speech, even if black nationalism seeks to tear down systematic racism? I get where you are coming from and even I would side w/Farrakhan on many issues, but we can’t have it both ways.

    Don’t even know where to begin to address the detestable lifeform known as Donald Trump. I guess he will get to keep his access because of his position...I guess telling 10,000 lies in 2 short years isn’t on the same same level of crime as posting anti-Semite, or white/black supremacy views.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    IDK he rubs me the wrong way... especially after Malcolm X's daughter said Farrakhan's words incited her fathers murder as well as him being a part of the group who admitted to plotting X's assassination...how can you cape for someone who had a hand in the murder of one of the most prolific men in AA history...

  • Whirl

    I checked out their instagram pages and they look like a happy family to me. Who knows. I can’t see him leaving her cause he starting to look like he getting up in age now.

    ALL of these so called "Minister's" and "Pastors"need to go sit down somewhere they are some of the most evil, hateful people I've ever met in my entire life.
    Who cares if he's blocked from Social media, doesn't he have a dwelling for his followers?

  • LeeSeeCee

    My dislike of Farrakhan has more to do with his shifty ways and his culpability in Malcolm X being murdered. He is a power hungry man who is a master manipulator.

  • LeeSeeCee

    ^^THIS^^^^^ All day, every day...

  • Tee Tee

    I didn't even watch it.
    Tasha K is messy for putting that story together using Ashanti's name. I usually ride for Tasha but I just couldn't bring myself to watch that particular video?????

  • Alextra Ballard

    Snoop wearing one of Steve Harvey’s Zoot Suits....smmfh

  • Nunya Business

    Exactly. People have been outraged for some time that Alex Jones and the like were banned on Twitter and Farrakhan was not since his rhetoric can be seen as equally as offensive to some people. I believe they really wanted Alex Jones, Milo, and Laura Loomer off and the only way to justify it without having the conversation being said that it was only far right people being banned was to get rid of Farrakhan also. He was collateral damage.

  • Guest

    Snoop's suit makes me wanna play some checkers. Did Steve Harvey's tailor make that? I thought the long suit trend passed.

  • speakinmymind

    It's a website. Farrakhan's 1st amendment rights haven't been violated.

  • speakinmymind

    The visual...???

  • Hair Lova ??

    It’s past the website. Everything has a starting point. I’m looking beyond that.

  • http://www.findyournichewithme.com Low E. 30BELOW

    FROM WHAT I GATHERED IT TOOK 4 MONTHS FOR HER TO PULL IT TOGETHER...I BELIEVE THIS VICTIM THOUGH. SHE WAS DISTRAUGHT THE MORE SHE STARTED DREDGING UP. TOO MANY RECEIPTS TO DETAIL; TASHA DID THE LEAST OF THE TALKING HERE TOO.

  • Hair Lova ??

    I get all of that but if you’re going to do it for one, do it for all. And that includes 45 as well. Like you can’t pick and chose if you’re going to create rules, regulations and guidelines.

  • KJBibleOnSlavShips

    Farrakhan,he one of the wies5t woke leaders the black comunity has.But I bet you care about what fake ,white ,massa Jesus has to say!!!

  • WhoKnew

    That suit looks like the suit Snoop will be laid out in. Do you Snoop Doggy arrgh, roof, roof.

  • TriniHarlem

    Sad part is most people won't even understand the bigger issue here due to a dislike. Y'all won't care until white people muzzle our mouths shut literally for you to understand. Farrakhan will be fine I believe but if this isn't telling then IDK what is.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    ??

  • Dori Day

    Please call them out. I still want to know how they are a danger to us?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I haven't gotten around to watching it, but I guess its worth a watch??

  • Navybeans95

    Nope. I don't "stan" for any Human... I also don't believe anyone on this planet knows what color Jesus was.. including you....

  • Dori Day

    I hear and read opinions, but not one example of how they are a danger to us.

  • MsPam

    If Snoop wants people to protest IG and FB let him delete his pages. Let him lead by example, if not sit down and shut up.

  • Karen Brady

    he just walked by.

  • U gon learn today

    Its not realistic to expect Trumps social media to be banned because we don’t like his content. He may be crude, unprofessional and highly ignorant; but it is also his right to communicate with the constituency via social media and he hasn’t posted any extremist views or hate speech that violates terms of use like these others. The issue is not as black and white as do it for one, do it for all. If that’s the case, these social media sites would have to ban 90% of the world because anything anyone posts can be deemed as offensive by someone else. But there is still a difference between offensive vs. hate speech.

  • U gon learn today

    Yeah your probably right. But we know Farrakhan doesn’t keep it politically correct either so that doesn’t help.

  • cheechee1x1

    I believe the victim!!

  • Chocolate Bliss

    Not only that, but the Minister practices colorism. I got to work with him and his crew for several years for his speeches. His crew is mostly made up of light skinned curly haired individuals. My people and I watched everyone of his crew be accounted for, and we were all stunned like, son you are not serious!!

  • Whirl

    My issue with all belief systems is they generally attempt to suppress women progressing. Not just them, christianity too.

    Man, when they had those with lunch in elementary school WITH the chocolate milks!? Heaven.

    I would say all black and Muslim cash out their stocks. However black peoples don’t invest much in stock markets lol

    Noam Chomsky — 'If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.'

  • Victorious82

    Farrakhan is a danger to white sensibilities and the white establishment.

  • Victorious82

    You must’ve missed the video where Malcolm X’s daughter did WITH the Minister saying he had nothing to do with the assassination of her father. White films have touted that narrative to discredit the Minister for years. Please do some research on your own and don’t let people tell you what they want you to think is the truth.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I love me some Snoop, just because..."Gin and Juice"...whatever...

    Just him speaking out, saying something, while doing a show with Martha Stewart gets my respect!

  • Li-Wright

    Don't worry about the NOI, they will get their message out.

  • Anji

    His extended family like grands are chocolate. Seems u may have a bias lol.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Snoop(whom I worked with twice) would look like Nipsey's long lost darker twin if he grew a beard.They have a strong resemblance to each other. Plus sound exactly alike.

  • rockstar2142

    Are you an actor or something?? Cause you stay working with folks.

  • Whirl

    I tend to agree. Leaders of belief systems are built up to be godhead super heros but truth is they just as human as the rest of us. Some of the nastiest people I’ve come across have been christian. I will be glad when the day come that we evolve beyond belief systems which always seem to factor down to control.

  • rockstar2142

    I can’t stand that witch Tasha. She is a known liar. And she messed with my girl ti. Has done nothing but lie & defame her.

    I remember when Steve Harvey suits first came out I thought they were elegant yet affordable. I’m not sure what’s going on now.

  • KJBibleOnSlavShips

    There'a no J in the Hebrew language .Jesus was made up by the cave Neanderthal Roman catholic church.

    THE MOST HIGH YHWH QUOTED:Isaiah 43:11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.

    Hosea 4:6
    6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:
    because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee,
    that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

    Black people are dying because lack of knowledge.Some of you don't know who your enemy is.

    Anyone with Neanderthal DNA wasn't created by THE MOST HIGH YHWH.

    White scientists even concluded that white people were created by the blk man interbreeding with cave NEANDERTHAL BECKYS.
    The blk woman couldn't get pregnant from the Neanderthal.So it's blk men that unleashed Pandoras box onto this world wich is evil white supremacy.

    God's didn't create anyone with Neanderthal DNA.God only created the blk woman and blk man and anyone else without Neanderthal DNA.

    I have researched that southern indians don't have Neanderthal DNA either.But a scientific jounal published says that blk people are the only one without neanderthal /Denisovan DNA.
    If a blk person does have neanderthal DNA than they were r!ped or interbred.I don't believe everything the white man wrote in that book called the bible.

  • Navybeans95

    ..u have a belief system..someone taught you and u believe it...it's your right to do so...I believe we are all human and racism, hate, and evil has been a flaw of all human beings since the beginning of time...I also believe that we (the human race) will never have all the answers because we aren't ready for it...this system has an expiration date, things can't go on the way they are and to get overly involved with belief systems is what we do but not necessary for survival...everything we know is temporary...I made a decision not to bash others and what they believe in because I know we will never all agree and it serves no purpose..

  • Tee Tee

    You'd be surprised the people that comment on these blogs. My husband works in the music industry as a video director and independent film maker.
    I don't go with him to work but the stories he tells me? and the raw footage while he's editing OMG?????

  • Tee Tee

    Thanks! Because of your comment I watched it. I agree with you!
    I just hate that because of who his daughter is she had to make that headline to get those clicks.
    I too believe his victim.
    I understand now why Tasha did what she did.

    Black folk kill me with this nonsense. How long we been whining about unfair treatment in this country but we still running to their goods and services?

    I don't know about that..but I AM puzzled by why the NOI is hooked up with Scientology. THAT, I don't get at all.

  • Disgustd

    Why is it ridiculous to leave FB/IG? All they are doing is spying on every damn body and conducting social experiments via algorithms. Life existed before them and will go on without them. MySpace used to be the shiddd and they faded, one day FB/IG will be replaced by something else too. I don't miss either one. More constructive time to devote elsewhere.

  • Disgustd

    Talculm X is controlled opposition so I doubt it. Maybe Tariq or DL tho.

  • Disgustd

    You can say the same for Malcolm X. I doubt you are black or you would understand that many of us are attracted to black people that appear to fearlessly tell truth to 'power' b/c many of us feel the exact same but don't have the platform and/or courage to say the same thing publicly. But trust, these are conversations we have had privately for centuries. I personally believe that any black leaders with a national platform who were a REAL threat to the status quo have already been murked by the US government and the only ones left today are the co-opted,neutralized and bought and paid off.
