Facebook has today banned Tommy Robinson from their social media platform.

They have stated “Material that uses dehumanising language” and violated policies around “organised hate” are the reason behind the banning.

The ban comes just hours after Robinson released undercover content in protest to the BBC.

4000 people gathered outside of the BBC HQ in Manchester where he aired the premiere of his documentary which showed undercover footage of members of the BBC getting drunk on BBC expenses funded by the tv licence payer.

Which included footage of John Sweeney getting drunk and claiming it’s all on the BBC after Robinson alleged they were planning a documentary about Tommy labelled “Tommy takedown”.

Facebook stated that it prohibits hate speech and claimed that Robinson has “repeatedly” violated that rule.

Robinson has today released a statement saying “I’ve breached no laws of Facebook, everyone is going to know that I’ve breached no rules.

“What I’ve done is shown people the truth and that is what they are removing, the truth. People will still find me.”
