While many praised Twitter permanently banning Donald Trump from its platform, Keri Hilson is questioning the “democracy” behind the decision.
As reported, the sitting president has been slammed by a large portion of the public as well as fellow politicians – who accuse him of inciting and stoking the shocking storming of Capitol by his supporters this week.
Indeed, so intense is the backlash that there are continued calls for Trump to be impeached – even though there are just 10 days to go before he cedes The White House to incoming president Joe Biden.
As for the social media ban? Keri seems to have an altogether different take.
Full story below…
In an alleged Instagram story (now deleted), the singer shared a screen-grab of Trump’s suspended page and added the caption:
“This may be funny. But it is a little dangerous too. Take Trump out of it for a moment…A democracy must include freedom of speech. Imagine other leaders or popular figures not being able to voice their opinion if it opposes the majority of the world leaders. Our freedom of speech being taken from us. Slowly but surely (censorship). If the leader of the “free world” can be removed, imagine that same right of civilians. Imagine believing every time you read “false information detected” and propaganda. Deceptive reports. And flat out lies being the only thing we see.”
Ms. Keri’s point totally omits the reason WHY Trump was banned.
Things that make you go..hmm.
