The Hollywood Reporter says popular conservative street artist Sabo had his Facebook page taken down after he created posters saying F* Zuck 2020 sporting a middle finger. He posted them in various cities in California.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly considering a run for President in 2020.
The reason given for the cancellation is that it’s ‘hate speech’: “Your page has been unpublished for using hate speech,” read the message at the Unsavory Agents fan page run by Sabo.
Sabo is the artist’s pen name and Unsavory Agents is the name of his website and business where his artwork is sold.
It is a pretty vulgar poster but many would say it doesn’t meet the standard of ‘hate speech’.
Sabo has also created disparaging street art aimed at Hillary Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lena Dunham, Cher and many more. Any of those could have gotten him banned.
All of it is politically incorrect, Sabo freely acknowledges, but not “hate” worthy of censorship.
His Google fake ads were much better.
