Facebook bans admin of new ‘Boycott A&E’ page

1517582_220873054762092_767069816_n(Examiner) Social media erupted in a firestorm of backlash yesterday immediately following A&E’s announcement that it had placed Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson on indefinite suspension. Robertson was suspended over comments he made during an interview with GQ Magazine.

In response to the suspension a new “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck Dynasty” page was created on Facebook, and fans of the show flocked to it like ducks to water. By Thursday afternoon the page had already generated 570,000 “Likes.”

Fans who went to the page saw a message that read: “This page is to show support for the freedom of speech of Americans. Unless Phil is reinstated to the show, we refuse to watch the A&E Channel!”

Apparently this didn’t sit well with Facebook. The administrator of the page was banned for 12 hours because of the overwhelming positive response. Apparently gaining 4,500 followers in just one hour isn’t acceptable.

The post read “This is Wayne Dupree Show, posting for the host of the page, Michael. Last night he received a BAN from facebook because of the page. Here is a photo of what was received. He got the page running again but cannot post for 12 hours. ” The post also included a image of the ban.
