Less than one week after permanently banning multiple conservatives from their platform after calling them “too dangerous” to have on the site, Facebook has removed the popular Bounding Into Comics page which had over 250k+ followers before the shutdown. Bounding Into Comics, a popular news blog for movies, comics, games, and other sectors of entertainment, received a notice earlier today that their page had been removed from Facebook.
The page that had over 250,000 followers was removed without warning and was given no reason for its removal. Bounding Into Comics had recently had a post removed because it violated “the Facebook Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.” Shortly after that message, the entire page was pulled.
John F. Trent, who runs the site, says that he was not provided with any actual concrete examples of the alleged violation that could have lead to his shutdown, but states that he was likely targeted due to the content his site covers online such as Marvel Comics’ treatment of their customer base and inflammatory comments made by celebrities. You can read John’s full explanation here.
Bounding Into Comics is currently still active on Twitter and YouTube as it looks into it’s Facebook situation. As social media platforms continue to purge dissidents from being able to affect popular culture, the needs for alternatives has only become stronger as censorship continues to grow.
