Former US President Donald Trump has condemned Facebook’s decision to extend his ban as they plan to review his case for another six months to determine a defined penalty.
Recall the social media giant had announced in January that Trump was locked out of his accounts on Facebook and Instagram indefinitely following the deadly Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol by his supporters.
On Wednesday, Facebook’s Oversight Board temporarily upheld the ban on Trump’s accounts for another six months to final decision.
Within six months, “Facebook must reexamine the arbitrary penalty it imposed on January 7 and decide the appropriate penalty,” the board said Wednesday. “This penalty must be based on the gravity of the violation and the prospect of future harm. It must also be consistent with Facebook’s rules for severe violations, which must, in turn, be clear, necessary and proportionate.”
Trump responded to the board’s ruling, saying in a statement: ‘What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country.
