Shana Chappell is the mother of Kareem Nikoui, one of the 13 Marines killed in Afghanistan last week. She is now reporting that her Facebook and Instagram pages were temporarily censored last night.
Angry about the incompetence of the Biden Administration, she took to Facebook and Instagram to vent.
Here is the censored post.
Shana then had her Instagram account disabled, and her Facebook account temporarily deleted. Facebook owns Instagram, so Ms. Chappell was silenced on both platforms.
As of this morning, her accounts have been reinstated. Facebook issued a statement in which they claimed that they had ‘accidentally banned’ the account.
We express our deepest condolences to Ms. Chappell and her family
Her tribute to her heroic son does not violate any of our policies. While the post was not removed, her account was incorrectly deleted and we have since restored it
State Senator Melissa Melendez tweeted out this statement last night in support of Ms. Chappell and her family.
Shana Chappell, mother of Marine and American hero Kareem Nikoui killed in Kabul, has had her FB and Instagram accounts suspended for posts she made about her son.— Senator Melissa Melendez (@senatormelendez) August 31, 2021
Kareem Nikoui is an American hero. His family deserves NOTHING but our total respect. What was done to this fallen Marine’s mother is absolutely TERRIBLE.
The White House has made clear that they work with Facebook in the past. You may remember a few months back when Jen Psaki admitted that the White House was FLAGGING posts to be deleted by Facebook.
Is that what happened here?
We aren’t sure. Facebook surely had no business censoring this grieving mother in any way. She is already dealing with the loss of her son. Then to have her communication lines cut off is just absolutely disgraceful.
Who banned her?
