Tommy Robinson, real name Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon, has been banned from Facebook and Instagram after repeatedly breaking hate speech policies.
A Facebook spokesperson has said:
“Tommy Robinson’s Facebook page has repeatedly broken standards, posting material that uses dehumanising language and calls for violence targeted at Muslims,”
“He has also behaved in ways that violate our policies around organised hate. As a result, in accordance with our policies, we have removed Tommy Robinson’s official Facebook page and Instagram profile.
“This is not a decision we take lightly, but individuals and organisations that attack others on the basis of who they are have no place on Facebook or Instagram.”
Facebook owns Instagram, hence him being banned on both platforms.
