Two North Carolina women who proudly proclaim to be President Trump’s biggest supporters are in hot water with Facebook.
Diamond and Silk, real name Lynnette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson, were in a tizzy after Facebook determined the duo’s videos were inappropriate and “unsafe to the community”. The decision is reportedly irreversible. Diamond and Silk are losing followers, notifications aren’t working and new potential viewers aren’t able to “Like” their page. The potential loss of revenue caused the women to nearly have a meltdown.
The duo let off some steam on Twitter and on Fox & Friends who accused Facebook of “bias censorship and discrimination.”

The ladies also tweeted that Facebook violated their own policy and said the company should give them a refund on the money they spent on ads.
“It’s offensive, it’s appalling, it taints our brand,” the sister continued on their rant. “They have gave us several bogus response on this and that… They’re trying to become a dictator.”
When one of the Fox hosts asked Diamond and Silk, what they plan on doing next to solve the problem, the sisters responded, “Facebook gone get this together, because we not Afraid of no Facebook… They gone get their act together or they gone be a face without the book.”
The duo said Mark Zuckerberg, owner of Facebook, needs to “suck it up buttercup and allow Diamond and Silk to speak our truth.”
