Nick Loeb, the director, producer and actor in the new Roe v. Wade film told Page Six that the social media site is censoring his ads for the film.
“They don’t like conservative content so they shadow-banned us.”
“This is a PG movie, no profanity, no gore. They are afraid this movie will overturn Roe v. Wade,” the 1973 US Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.”
Breitbart reports that this is the ad they tried to run, but were refused due to new rules regarding advertising policies that Facebook adopted recently.
Facebook told Breitbart:
The ads involve advocacy for an issue under our “issues of national importance.” As you know, in May we made big changes to the way ads related to politics or issues work on Facebook.
As a result, this ad requires authorization, disclosure before it can run on Facebook under this ad policy. Here are some details about the authorization process. To get authorized, advertisers will need to complete the following steps.
Previously, Facebook blocked the Roe v. Wade fundraising site.
The movie will star Jon Voight and Stacey Dash, with cameos from Tomi Lahren and Milo Yiannopoulos. it does not yet have a distributor but the trailer is set to premier at today’s March for Life events in Washington D. C.
