The Nation of Islam leader is banned from both social media platforms.

Following news that Louis Farrakhan has been banned from both Facebook and Instagram for being “dangerous,” rappers Jay Electronica and Snoop Dogg have spoken out against the ban, with the latter even threatening to boycott the two social media platforms.

“So, Facebook and Instagram banned Minister Louis Farrakhan. I want to know for what,” Snoop said in a video uploaded to his Instagram account. “All he ever do is tell the truth. But y’all gon’ ban him, though. Alright, what if we ban y’all? What if we stop fuckin’ with y’all, Facebook and Instagram? The fuck y’all gonna ban Minister Louis Farrakhan? For puttin’ truth out there? I stand with him. I’m with him. Ban me, mothafucka. Ban me, ’cause I’m gonna keep posting his shit.”

Electronica responded to the ban via Twitter.

“You (Synagouge of Satan {Rev 2:9} ) can ban The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan from social media, but you can’t ban him from the H E A R T S & M I N D S of ppl (of all races and nations) ALL OVER THE WORLD…,” the rapper wrote. “In the end, we will see who is banned and who is not by God, and no matter what you do…”

Along with Farrakhan, the two social media platforms banned Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos.

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