Snoop Dogg responds to Facebook's decision to ban Louis Farrakhan from its social media platform.
It didn't take long for Facebook to face backlash, and a potential boycott, over its decision to ban Minister Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan, who's made some questionable comments in the past, was removed from the social media platforms, along with Milo Yiannapoulis, InfoWars Alex Jones, and several other prominent right-wing figures, earlier today. However, this isn't flying past Snoop Dogg well who suggested a boycott against the social media platform is in order.

"Facebook and Instagram banned Minister Louis Farrakhan. I want to know for what," Snoop said. "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?" He continued. "The fuck y'alll gon' ban Minister Louis Farrakhan? For puttin' truth out there."
Farrakhan's been a strong supporter of the hip-hop community for years, helping rappers during times of need. Snoop pledged his loyalty to Farrakhan before apologizing to the Minister for his language.
"I stand with him. Ban me, mothafucka. Ban me. Because I'm gon' keep posting his shit, I'mma keep putting Minister Louis Farrakhan out there," he said.
"We've always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology," a Facebook spokesperson explained regarding the ban. "The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today."
