Facebook Takes Down White Nationalist and Fake Antifa Accounts

Facebook announced Tuesday that the company removed accounts associated with white nationalism after some of the accounts encouraged bringing weapons to protests.

Some of the now-deleted accounts were related to The Proud Boys and The American Guard, two groups that Facebook had deemed dangerous for their white nationalist rhetoric.

Facebook also deleted accounts that falsely claimed to be antifa to discredit the movement. The accounts were allegedly removed for behavior and not for political content.
