Rapper Lil B banned from Facebook for 30 days over ‘hate speech’  


“As I have lectured at some of the best institutions around the USA, I felt that I was only starting a blunt but positive discussion with no hate intended,” he responded.

“I respect Facebook for its policies and staff and would love to work together in the future on ways to combat hate as well as praise free speech and protect all people …”

Facebook defines hate speech as “content that attacks people based on their actual or perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, disability or disease”.
