Facebook Bans Shane Trejo Without Reason

Facebook Banned

Facebook banned Shane Trejo, a reporter for Big League Politics, without a warning or explanation. It happened very shortly after Facebook announced its crackdown on QAnon related accounts, but Trejo is not a QAnon supporter and had actually been critical of the movement. According to National File:

Trejo, however, was not a member of a militia group, and had previously criticized QAnon on social media. However, he did recently publish an article that was critical of outgoing Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA) for heaping praise on a rant by CNN’s Jake Tapper against the QAnon movement. Even in that article, however, there was no expression of support for QAnon itself.
