Facebook Confirms Rapper Lil B Has Been Banned for ‘Hate Speech’



It goes without saying that Lil B is a certified internet legend … a social media dinosaur and a Youtube triple OG. But Facebook has apparently banned the Berkeley rapper for the next month, temporarily cutting down his substantial online presence.

Motherboard reported that a Facebook representative confirmed that Lil B was temporarly banned from the platform for 30 days for violating the site’s hate speech policies and the offending posts were deleted from the his page.

On Sunday, Lil B tweeted that he was banned for “talking about white people” on the site. He normally posts multiple times a day on Facebook, but his page has been silent since October 4.

Lil B has been on a recent social media tear discussing, in blunt terms, complex issues about race in America. On Twitter and on Facebook, the rapper has recently called out everything from the double standards around visual codes for “threatening” and “safe” in society, to the legacy of slave ownership in the US. There’s no question that the Base God is mad, but throughout it all he’s peppered his critical posts with a message of love for everybody, no matter their skin colour.

Fans have been deeply divided in their reactions. Some have lauded Lil B for speaking so forcefully, while others bristled at what they perceived to be broad generalizations about white people. Facebook previously banned activist Shaun King for posting a racist message he received, but the company quickly removed the ban. Other prominent black activists, such as Didi Delgado and Ijeoma Oluo had also previously been banned by Facebook for their posts.

Facebook deleted the posts that incurred the 30-day ban before Motherboard could view them, and we’ve been unable to find archives or screenshots of them. (The Facebook rep wouldn’t specify the offending posts, citing user privacy.) Requests for comment to Lil B over Twitter and email weren’t immediately answered.

Regardless, with a Twitter following of more than one million people, Lil B will persevere. He’ll be back on Facebook in no time. It’s also not the rapper’s first tangle with the social networking giant—in 2014 he claimed to be banned for 30 days from Facebook for his posts.

More importantly, we still have Black Ken, Lil B’s triumphant 27-song mixtape from August. And for that, I have to simply say thank you, BasedGod.

XXXTentacion Jailed After Being Charged With 7 New Felonies



According to reports obtained by TMZ, Jahseh Onfroy better known under his rap moniker XXXTentacion was sent to jail this morning, Friday, December 15, after prosecutors handed down seven additional felony charges related to his 2016 domestic violence case which include witness tampering and witness harassment.

Earlier this month, the defendant demanded for the charges to be dropped, which resulted in a delay of his trial. Following the investigation, prosecutors hold responsible Jahseh Onfroy of harassment against the ex-girlfriend who he was prosecuted of assaulting. Judge ruled that the Broward County rapper had violated initial arrest’s bond and with the added charges the 19-year-old emcee could face decades in prison.

In his last public posts on Intagram, the rapper shows his positivity against adversity and gives it all back to his fans and supporters:

We love you X.

“Doesn’t matter how dark it gets the sun will always come out again, and let the sun be a reminder to you that negative feelings and emotions shall pass. Let it be a reminder that you will outshine all that try to take you off your path. You are a star. You are divine. Your life is your own your purpose is yours to choose.” 

“And when the moon comes, come to terms with yourself, are you on your path? Do you deserve to rest? How much have you progressed, and when you have, look to yourself and thank yourself for becoming the person you want to be. Thank the moon for shinning her light in the darkness, day in, and day out.”

“I love you all, and no matter what, I will continue to and support you all, dead or alive. Seek out your path, your answers. Find yourself. I am here, with you, always.”
