Events supporting Black Lives Matter are allowed to stay up on Facebook. But not events that support the police force.
According to Law Enforcement Today national spokesperson Kyle Reyes, the page for the Long Island “Back the Blue” rally scheduled to take place on July 25 was taken down on Facebook. “We had more than 6,300 people who had already RSVP’ed to the event on Facebook. And as of last night, Facebook took down the page with no explanation,” he said on the July 24 episode of Fox and Friends First.
Reyes told Fox News correspondent Todd Piro, “Now we know that Facebook has taken down the pages of other rallies and events over the last six months. We just didn’t expect it to happen with the Back the Blue event.”
Facebook was not available for comment at the time of this publication.
