Following the rioting and violence on January 6, 2021 after a mob breached the United States Capitol, GLAAD is calling on social media companies to ban President Donald Trump permanently. Trump has consistently used social platforms including Facebook and Twitter to stoke violence and spread misinformation. The risk of allowing President Trump to continue this behavior using these platforms is too great.
GLAAD’s Trump Accountability Project has been tracking the Trump administration’s attacks against the LGBTQ community - 181 and counting in negative policies and dangerous rhetoric over the last four years, and a number of them happening on social media.
Facebook announced that Trump will be banned from Facebook and Instagram indefinitely, but we urge them to make this move permanent, and we urge Twitter to follow suit.
