Facebook Just Banned Faith Goldy And Other "Dangerous" Canadians And People On Twitter Are Celebrating

The social media giant has labelled them "dangerous individuals and organizations."

As part of its effort to remove white nationalist organizations and rhetoric from its platform, Facebook has banned 6 Canadian accounts, according to Global News. The accounts have been taken down under the "Dangerous Individuals and Organizations" policy, the CBC clarifies.

Faith Goldy, a Canadian nationalist who espouses what many describe as racist views, is among those who have been banned. 

The Trump-supporter and former candidate for mayor of Toronto has taken to Twitter to express her frustration. "Our enemies are weak and terrified," she claims.

🚨BANNED FROM @FACEBOOK & @INSTAGRAM🚨

Somehow 🇨🇦’s state media had enough advance warning to get a piece out before even I found out!
