Since the roll out of the newly written community standards rules that Facebook published after the public backlash over data harvesting and Zuckerberg’s congressional hearing, FB went out of their way to essentially redefine what “hate speech” is and how it should be determined on their platform. In their shiny new packaged CS rules they published, they wanted to make clear that they do not tolerate any type or form of harassment, hate speech, and/or abusive content, they even went into great detail on how any kind of insinuation of calling someone or dirt, trash, bacteria, or feces was strictly prohibited by FB’s rules. Basically what FB did was, instead of acknowledging what every reasonable person in America understands what hate speech actually is, FB decided “hey let’s make everything hate speech and just keep enforcing the rules so only white men are protected like we’ve always done and call it a fix?!”
Because here’s what FB actually means when they put in their CS written polices that using “trash” or synonyms thereof isn’t against community standards therefore hate speech:
So all these posts which were removed by FB and deemed “hate speech” all have 1 thing in common, they all “men” in them. However, when you make a post calling any one else who isn’t considered a “straight white man” trash then weirdly, FB seems to have a different response to what their own hate speech rules are.
Huh?? ain’t that funny how when it’s not a woman calling out sh*tty men on FB then suddenly FB couldn’t care less about calling others “trash” on their platform. What. a. mystery!
I just got banned (for a second time) for saying “white trash.” Actually, this time I didn’t even say “white trash” I just said, “I like seeing white and trash together.” Apparently facebook thinks “white trash” is a “racial slur.” Um.. What?!
I got banned for saying “what in the white trash?!” I’m white LOL who am I offending
That happened to me today. Here’s the post that got me jailed; Chad Baier No, no. Not Progressive leaders. There are none worth speaking of (AOC, Bernie, and Tulsi Gabbard notwithstanding) at the moment. No Chad. Republicans and corporate Democrats own this dumpster fire of a country. Homelessness and opioid use? Those are white trash problems caused and exacerbated by the very people they voted into office in the first place. Either Republicans who are taking money from so many different entities they don’t even know who their working for anymore or Democrats trying so hard to sound like Republicans they forgot they were Democrats ( See Claire McCaskill and Beto O’Rourke). Either way, its it’s your fucking mess. I’d ask you to clean it up, but you folks couldn’t find your own asses in a dark bathroom with both hands and a flashlight.
Facebook will silence blacks for having an opinion yet allow whites to do what they want. I’ve been flat out called a ni***r and that’s not hate speech. Just last night in a post about klhoe trashdashian a white woman said her baby would pretty if she choose a white man also said she wouldn’t be parenting alone. Another white woman said her comment was racist because it is stereotypical racism. I reported it that doesn’t meet the standard. I say she should have let him stay with his pregnant fiance instead of being white trash and hopping on BBC. I’m in jail for 7 days for being black and having an opinion.
I got banned again for calling a white person white trash.
I was banned for 7 days last December for saying “white trash” in a post that was a month old. I said it a second time this last weekend, and I’m now banned for 30 days.
Funny how conservatives tell us to “fuck (our) feelings”, while being far more thin-skinned.
Same here. Got banned for Seven days for calling a white person. “White Trash”. So much for freedom of speech on Facebook.
I’m white. Andi believe their is white trash. Especially repugs that support a white trash ass called trump as he is a racists and a a natzi loving peice of deification.
I just got a warning for using the term white trash.
Same here. I called a white couple who were caught on video calling a black family the n-word and harassing them “white trash”. So apparently if you call something what it is it’s a no-no.
Just got banned for white trash but blatant white trash being bigots towards everyone is acceptable. Oh you hate blacks? That’s ok! But you think white people who hate black people are trash? 30 days suspension. Wtf.
Me too! So nice when is “white trash” hate speech?
Did someone have to report me for this to happen?
I just got banned for saying we have a trash president. That is particularly egregious because only in a communist country can you not speak out against your leaders. This same leader who along with the help of Alexander Nix, and the online Russian campaign of propaganda won an election. WoW. The first time it was for calling one of the Wild Wonderful Whites of WV, trolling my friend Tara’s facebook, every post. THIS GUY LITERALLY HAS A TATTOO THAT SAYS “WHITE TRASH.” That female calling these shots has it all wrong and I’d jump on a class action in a heartbeat.
Same here. However, it’s perfectly acceptable for people to use the N word or call me a fag. I am so completely tired of the hypocrisy.
Me too. White trash is banned. They are a-holes.
I just got banned for using the phrase “white trash.” This place has turned into a total joke.
I got banned too for saying that about a woman who was screaming racial slurs at black people.?
She is white trash .
Same thing happened to my husband. He asked me to post on his page letting people know about it. Guess they’ll ban me too. Like I give a crap!
And the white trash was able to live her best life and continue to call my people names as if we haven’t been through enough. Facebook racist as hell.
Me too! I called the rumps white trash and got banned for a month
I just got a 7-day FB jail sentence for using the term “white trash” as well (referring to my neighbor who was just arrested on felony drug possession charges for selling out of his house) – and I’m as white as wonder bread. How about a warning or something instead?
The reality is Facebook is trying to social re-engineer the world into a big happy kumbaya Utopian society out of the book Brave New World or even the “future” as depicted by the Sylvester Stallone movie Demolition Man. So much for inclusion and acceptance of alternative viewpoints. I grew up when All in the Family was on TV, Eddie Murphy was making ‘fag’ jokes with regularity and the maintenance guys at the factory had Playboy centerfolds hanging up on the wall in their shop. Fast-forward 20-30 years and it’s all about soy milk and tolerance.
I got reported for saying white trash in a joking way, because technically I -am- white trash! I live in a damned trailer park, I’m poor, and I never got to go to college. I’m well-read, an author, and pretty savvy, but FFS, if we have other demographics calling one another slurs in a good-humored way, can’t I reclaim my white trash slur in the same manner?
Fact smh I’ve been calling ni***r report it and that’s not hate speech but dare I say white trash oh now it’s jail for 7 days
Please email me the screenshot of the you getting called the n word and Facebook saying it’s not in violation. email@example.com
I got banned for referring myself as white trash thought it was a slip up so i screen shot it and posted it with my other account and got banned for that as well fb is getting dumber by the day
I posted a recipe for white trash per Alton Brown… WHO KNEW?
I just got banned this morning for using the term “white trash”. Came as a surprise to me. I’ve used it before, and no problem.
I was banned 3 days for saying “I grew up poor white trash and today I am the Millionaire Next Door.
I did not get banned but my comment “typical white trash” was removed and l got a notification that it violates their community standards.
I just got banned for saying White Trash White House. I was referring to trump tweet fighting with a porn star, lol.
Like Facebook’s rules, this article is also a joke… I’m a white guy who got a memory pulled because I called MYSELF white trash. I live in a rural area, drive big ugly trucks, literally have half a car on blocks, a set of car tires as end tables in the living room, and tell people to look for the redneck white trash house when they visit for the first time ?
I got banned for telling others not to use the expression white trash.
I too just a 24 hr ban for writing white trash. WTF?
Does FB read everything or does someone report you? Wow
I just got banned for 10 days for saying “white trash” in response to the four white folks arrested for killing a lot of white folks in drug-related murders. I am white.
I got banned for using white trash, but porn, animal abuse, and that suicidal pic are all ok.
I was banned for 3 days for calling an article about Cindy Hyde-Smith’s racist history white trash. Umm, she is a horrible human. I have deactivated my account. Twitter is more fun anyway. FB has changed so much it’s catering to the senior citizen demographic only.
I was put in Facebook jail for three days, for calling someone trash. Well I deactivated my Facebook account
Just got banned for saying white trash for 3 days. No warning. Meanwhile, there are groups called “white Trash…..” on Facebook. Great! Now I can’t communicate with FB friends and family over Xmas.
I got banned for a week for posting a picture of a girl in my dads neighborhood stealing Christmas decorations off a porch and calling her white trash?? Then another neighbor posted that some jackass cut all the cords on their decorations and i told her to watch the name calling lol because i was kicked off for calling the thief white trash and they kicked me off again. Then when i was back on someone ask where i had been and told them and fb kicked me off again ??? So guess they are sighting with the white trash thief and not the poor victim of her crime ….
I just got jailed for 3 days for calling an old neighbor “trash can stealing White Trash” – I didn’t name them at all but I am guessing that “White Trash” is now “hate speech”? I totally agree, a warning or something would be nice – perhaps we should all have English majors and Attorneys to review all of our future posts – paid for by Facebook of course.
Just got banned for 30 for saying “bye bigot”
WTF is with Face Book lately? They let posters call each other c*&t and every other name but I called Trump supporters “white trash” and I got banned for HATE SPEECH!!!! Since when is the term white trash classified as hate speech? Have those idiots lost their bloody minds?!!! I think I may just delete the account, seeing as they are now so stupidly sensitive!
I just got 30 days FB jail for complaining about some guy asking to see my tits and trying to brag about his 12 inch dick and posted it
Saying men are pigs
Because another guy asked me if I was dtf nd for nudes when I said no he blocked me. It’s a reaccuring situation
Yea dude dont act like pigs I wont call you pigs
what gives such epic bull
someone said that the hamburgers that trump gave to the team is that only wt eats it, so i asked so you are saying that only white trash eat mcdonalds. and boom i got a warning
I got a one year Account Violation Warning for commenting “white trash” (white myself, btw) on my sister in laws video of violent protesters with guns wanting US Government to lift lockdown! And meanwhile, Facebook is responsible for at least hundreds of “Moderators” suffering with mental health problems after having beeen forced to watch horrific videos of child abuse, torture, etc. while paying them peanuts (at least the ones here in Dublin, who are contracted through agencies are paid a pitty for this work). I think I may get rid of my account soon, it’s ridiculous how hypocritical they are. And another thing, I keep seeing “we’re hiring” ads from Facebook, which seem to be little but self-promotion, hitting us over the head with how “diverse” they are, only ethnic minorities in each picture. It’s pathetic and wrong – it’s like they’re exploiting and humiliating minorities by doing this. I bet that in reality, like 99 per cent of their work force is white and conservative, and that while there’s an algorythm catching “white trash”, there’s nothing in place to “arrest” other, much more unacceptable racial slang. Buuuh
I got banned for saying “white trash like to blame immigrants for their own problems”.
There is definitely a search algorithm that goes through every post, private and public, and looks for those specific words.
Wonder if they would ban you if you typed “I threw my white Nikes in the trash.”
I got banned for three days for saying white trash because some old guy called me a moron for questioning trump’s Immigration policy! How Ridiculous!
I was threatened with a suspension because I referred to a Jersey Shore cast member and her ex-husband as “white trash with money”. I was told that this is “hate speech”. Mind you, I am Caucasian myself. This is utterly ridiculous.
Someone posted a picture of a cat looking at a dog. In that picture a dog is asleep and a cat is looking at that dog. The caption says: “When you think the argument is over but for her it is not.” This implied that a cat is female. So I asked if MEN ARE DOGS. Now I’m in jail.
I typed two words. White. Trash. Just like that. Banned for a month. Not long ago, Conservatives were whining that Facebook was targeting them. I guess FB decided that they should target a different group. Make things look “fair.” So now, “white trash” is treated the same as every cuss word. Wow. From now on, I’ll type “Whyte Trasch.”
Just for three days for saying white trash again. That’s all I said and boom.
Now I’m gonna post pictures of white trash bags once my ban is over. ?
Just got a 30 day ban for calling a cop killer “white trash”. I’m white so I don’t see it as hate speech. But reading this page as proven me otherwise.
I was banned for all of November for referencing “animals”, got another 30 day ban in December for calling a girl fat who called me a name first and now this.
What a fucking joke. I deleted the app and yesterday I was wasting way to much time on FB anyways. These FB bans are really healthy for me.
I got put in Facebook jail for 30 days for saying God is acting like he doesn’t exist and asking why… Facebook is run by fucking cunts
If I can’t use the term “white trash” anymore, can I use the term “black trash”? If “white trash” earns a ban of three days to a month, what’s the penalty for “black trash”??
If either (or both), is forbidden, then how can we have a meaningful social discussion about trash bags? You know, the thin, little 15 gallon white trash bags vs. the larger, thicker 33 gallon black trash bags???
Inquiring minds want to know.
I got Banned for saying Crazy Cracker ???
“Crackers come in many shapes and sizes – round, rectangular, triangular, or irregular. In American English, the name “cracker” usually refers to savory and/or salty flat biscuits, whereas the term “cookie”, or “biscuit” in UK English, while similar to a cracker in appearance and texture, means it is sweet.”
So i’d like to know how this is racist?
I was just put in jail for saying an animal abuser is “White Trash”. Facebook is an assault on our freedom of speech. They are ridiculous.
so i found out today saying moron is hate speech facebook is a bunch of cowardly fools
I also got banned for 30 days for using the term white trash. Taking away my right to free speech is unconstitutional. It would be great if someone could afford a lawyer and start a class action law suit.
Just got 30 days in Facebook jail.for calling Robert Deniro ,white trash . Too funny
I got warned for saying, or itsw the white trash blowing in from Colorado. I am raising hell because they’re not checking the context of the comment.
Just got my post removed about the Texas guy that got the death penalty for dragging a black man miles from his truck. I called him white trash. I that isn’t white trashish, what is?
I said Trumps only accomplishment was proving you don’t have to be poor to be white trash. Which #1 is the truth #2 is speech directed at one orange idiot not an entire race #3 not a comment on race but class …I live in the white trashiest town in my state so I’m an expert 🙂 sad as I’ve reported actual hate speech and dog whistle racism that gets a pass. This article is 100% Facebook had better not solicite me to advertise anymore cause lord knows I’m not Also on race facebook deemed me to be black I’m not sure why and I guess my ads were targeted that way which is messed up on so many levels. I’ve plain as a sheet of a paper 🙂
Chalky garbage is not allowed on the pro white nationalist FB site. Part of the problem is the enlightened folks over at places like NPR’s Code Switch who seem to think if we all use Mr. Rodger’s language, our country will be healed by divine intervention. My experience having come from extreme poverty and having lived amongst chalky garbage is that calling a digging stick a shovel is what is necessary in this life. We have two problems in this country, the latte liberals who are out of touch with reality and their friends on the other side of the race line who think that the answer to everything is correct speech. You can’t fix a problem until you can identify it with labels. FB is clearly pro Trump and pro Putin. Not sure what the problem is over at Code Switch at NPR–too much education I fear and not enough time on the street with reality. This country has always had some pretty nasty chalky folks whose only call to fame is the fact that they think their skin tone makes them morally superior to those darker. How else to explain the grandson of a pimp who was expelled from his own country for cowardice getting elected to the Oval House? Only pond scum would elect fellow pond scum. So sorry, latte privileged liberals. Rev Al is right. We’re in a street fight.
I was in Facebook jail for three days because I remarked on a post shared by friend that the all white welfare cheat in the mugshots accompanying the article were white trash. It was INSTANT. The moment I posted, I got the suspension notice popup. And I have a LOT to say after being silenced.
Apparently Big Brother Zuckerberg’s AI algorithms read those two words you can see in the suspension screen grabs as not “following their community standards”, telling me that my post was attacking people based on their “race, ethnicity, national origin or caste”.
Meanwhile actual hateful posts I found on Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Facebook profile during my suspension, by a bigot named Sebel Meshesha telling LBQT people they’re going to Hell, apparently WEREN’T hateful enough to elicit termination by the Zuckerbots.
One thing is for sure. Zuckerberg’s AI is not programmed to understand context, and he’s too cheap to pay an actual staff to review content that their AI automatically tags as violating their “guidelines” because when I appealed their suspension, all I got for three days was crickets.
The reason I called out the welfare cheats as such is because usually white racists insist it’s black and brown people engaging in welfare fraud all the time causing “all” of America’s problems. As brilliant as Mark Zuckerberg is, apparently his “community standards” algorithms can’t discriminate between irony and hate speech.
So I couldn’t share any articles I found interesting, or respond to personal messages. Thanks to Zuckerberg’s indiscriminate censorship, it also prevented me from taking care of any business on my business pages like announcing that registration had opened for a film festival I produce, or send birthday wishes, etc.
After sharing this explanation with friends regarding my absence and posting a screen grab of the suspension screen with my words “white trash”, Markie’s AI once again suspended me for SEVEN days. This after I was asked by them for my feedback regarding the action and I pointed them to my post describing what had happened above.
I’m not done paying for any more of their shitty Facebook advertising which doesn’t lead to any sales anyway because I don’t take well to being treated this way. The irony there is I constantly report phony ads to them from companies selling unlicensed movie memorabilia, or offering high ticket collectibles for ridiculously low prices knowing that those companies aren’t picturing what they’re selling, as proven by people who comment on those ads as having been ripped off, but Mark lets those ads run and rakes in the cash while his AI punishes people for things like what I wrote while getting rich also selling all our personal information.
Facebook is now a way of life for everyone to stay connected, there aren’t any other platforms that come close to toppling it so we’re at it’s mercy if we want to stay current with friends and family while expressing opinions as guaranteed by our constitution so long as we are not promoting violence or criminal activity or inciting to behave inappropriately against others. I thought Facebook’s new policies were meant to prevent Nazis and racists and white supremacists from harassing people, but it appears we’re all targets now for sharing an opinion that would turn those same hate mongers into snowflakes.
This is some serious fucking BULLSHIT
I got 7 days facebook jail for calling a white woman ‘ white trash’ for telling Puerto Ricans to go back to Mexico… she was allowed to say that and it’s on facebook – but me calling her white trash ( me being white and growing up trash) it’s hate according to facebook… can we not start a class action lawsuit on their censorship regulations because they don’t match up to actual hate speech???
I JUST GOT 3 DAY FACEBOOK BAN FOR CALLING DUANE CHAPMAN WHITE TRASH SMOKING DRUGS IN FRONT OF BETH giving her cancer, letting her die.
FB really needs to get a clue….. I was speaking about a show (Southern Charm)….. ” We all have or still have friends from college that acts like Madison and some of the other girls, who at times, has acted like white trash……and people in this forum would not have regurgitated that if Shep had not have said it…….I have friends that act just like Dani did with her theatrics and they know or knew their ass was burning; Shep has probably been with all of those girls…..” this is what got me banned…..I just hope the other people that said white trash on the thread got banned too.
i said a toilet on someone’s back porch adds a little “white trash panache” to their exterior design…in a private group and BOOM 7 days of fb jail. This is ridiculous. I use fb messenger as my primary means of contacting a TON of people and now i can’t even communicate because their computer doesn’t understand context. fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.
Lol! Glad it isn’t just me! Facebook is out of control. They blocked a comment of mine last week then very quickly admitted they were wrong and put the comment back up, BUT EVEN AFTER THEY ADMITTED THEY WERE WRONG, THEY STILL WOULDN’T LET ME LEAVE COMMENTS ON FACEBOOK FOR A WEEK! And now, they’ve just done it again! I posted a comment saying white trash racists are out of control on a news article about a racist white woman terrorizing and threatening 4 innocent young black boys selling things door to door. It’s an article about a disgusting, trashy racist white woman terrorizing black boys. Hello! It’s a very clear case of disgusting white trash racism. And they block my comment??? Who is making these judgment calls? This needs to be reported to the news. Why are they punishing people for defending equal rights while protecting violent white trash racists?
Waiting out my time in 24-hour FB jail for third use of the term “white trash” (over a period of ~4 months).
I get automatic 30-day sentences for the use of “White Trash.”
I just got thrown in FB jail because I read a story about a woman from Arkansas who answered a knock on her door and when she saw it was 4 African American kids, she called the cops, despite the fact that they were just selling fundraiser items for school. I said she was just dumb, uneducated white trash and BOOM, I’m banned. Yes, I am fucking pissed. She is exactly what I called her and I regret nothing. It should be noted that I am a lily-white Midwesterner.
Happened to me too! Twice actually. I swear I don’t understand what is so bad about saying “white trash” and I am white and from the part of Ohio where Hillbilly Elegy was written. Meanwhile men have called me a “cunt” and nothing has happened to them and I have seen them say every offensive thing in the book to black people. Someone needs to tell Zuck that “reverse racism” is not a thing.
I got banned for saying isnt it funny white trailer trash here in texas only will get 4 years in prison for 4 counts of grand theft but the black man got 55 years.
And I’m white and from texas.
Yet in 4he same debate they didnt ban a mans comment that said ” tje monkey got what he deserved”
I confronted them . Captured the cached comments and luckily my uncle is a state prosecutor
This year I was jailed by FB for a combined cool 100 days for remarks against the Trumpista regime and its gullible rubes. I surely hope that MeWe will be taking off successfully.
I’m currently in facebook jail for saying “donald trump is proof that you don’t have to be poor to be white trash” in response to his ridiculing of Greta Thunberg.
Ditto. Happened to me as well.
I am really hoping that the investors will throw Zuckerberg. He’s just a little kid in an adult’s world.
I caught a 30 day ban on Facebook and messenger for commenting “white trash” on a video of a white woman throwing her food back at a Taco Bell worker for getting her order wrong. I’m white myself. How does that work?! I see people call other people c*nts, f*gs, b*tches, wh*res, every other name in the book, and racist slurs all day long but they never get reported or banned. I call someone else white trash for, in fact, being white trash and I get the boot? Ridiculous.
Facebook is a joke I was commenting on a post about facebook jail and said I got thrown in it for calling Taylor Swift white trash and was again banned I didn’t even call her Whit trash this time
I think that it’s automatically flagged and they instantly ban you no matter the context of the comment
I literally just said the word “trash” agreeing with a male user in response to a racist meme, I’ve been banned 30 days 😂 the original meme is still there! I won’t be using Facebook for its purpose when I go back and will be deleting all my data. Just using it for my charity page now.
I just got Facebook jail for calling a trump lover sarcastic. Can you believe this shit.
I’ve had two warnings for using the term ‘trailer trash’. I think that some can report you for saying anything and they will automatically take action.
Facebook deleted a post I made and restricted my account because I referred to NASCAR fans who are upset about the banning of the Confederate Flag as “white trash”.
I just got blocked for a day or something for saying ‘white trash’ related to Cardi B? Stated that she behaved like one. Did you know btw that when Zuckenberg founded facebook at Harvard it was meant to rank co-eds….How far this nimskol has come. lol. Hail Julius Ceasar…because that is exactly how his hairdo looks like. That is whom I see whenever hes on tv.
Mark Zuckerberg is a racist and a classist for making the phrase “white trash” a bannable offense. Anyone who’s offended by calling white trash white trash is a racist and a classist as well.
I got dinged for calling white supremacists white trailer trash. Where I live, most everyone who lives in a dumpty trailer has a confederate flag in the yard so what I said what not hate speech. It was the truth!
I just got banned for saying someone’s a piece of trash if they work in the medical field and discriminate. Quite literally “someone’s a piece of trash”. 😀 and when I reported that I disagreed that my post went against community standards, my 7 day ban went *all the way up to 30 days*
I’m a gay man that got a 30 day hate speech ban for saying ‘faggot’ February 2021. I disabled my Facebook account February 2021 and only enabled it once since then to say Facebook sucks. Then disabled it again. This gay man doesn’t have time for a double standard carrying, ‘faggoty’ social media network like Facebook. Especially when I have screenshots of black people using the ‘n’ word and not getting hate speech bans on Facebook. All I’ve learned from Facebook is that it’s fine for black people to use the ‘n’ word, but gay men get 30 day hate speech bans for using faggot.
