Facebook Bans AmericanAF (Somewhat Reinstated)

Facebook Banned

Facebook banned AmericanAF, a political merchandise shop, without warning for promoting their brand in a “misleading way.” The five year old page had over 1.6 million followers. American Military News reported:

A Facebook representative said the brand was promoting merchandise with “’Trump’ and ‘Keep America Great’ branding in a misleading way – namely that this was official Trump merchandise, affiliated with the Trump campaign.’”

Facebook apparently allowed AmericanAF to start a new page which can be found here (for now). A post on that page reads:

This is the OFFICIAL American AF page. The rumors are true! Our original page was taken down by Facebook, unfortunately.
