A Facebook post going virally across the social media site that shows what looks to be a Messenger chat Mark Zuckerberg’s  agreeing to remove presidential candidate Donald Trump from Facebook if that screenshot can accumulate over 500,000 likes, 50,000 comments and 20,000 shares.

The post received 613,000 likes, 95,000 comments and  66,000 shares.

Despite the post getting plenty of attention, most online sources claim it is clearly “fake“, given that Zuckerberg and Facebook are always closely monitored and often criticized over the controversial subject of freedom of speech and censorship.

HuffingtonPost reported that the post had been deleted after Callan Brown posted a statement revealing that the conversation was fake.

The chances that the highly-visible CEO will publicly grant the wish of a random Facebook user to remove a presidential candidate from Facebook if a post can accumulate an arbitrary number of social media engagement is, to say the least, highly unlikely, an online blog reports.

zuckerberg-scamAside from the post, there’s a google chrome extension that is also available for download dubbed, “Remove Donald Trump from Facebook Homepage“. The extension is set to remove posts on Facebook that contain a combination of “Donald” and “Trump”.

“I got sick of seeing Donald Trump on my feed so I made this,” Derek Story writes in a description of the extension.

“It won’t remove all instances of Donald Trump on your feed, but it will take care of most of them. For instance, if only his first or last name is referenced, the post will still show,” Derek notes.

There’s also an on-going petition that was started by Michael Castelli with a single signature, now has 83 supporters needs 100 supporters to have Trump scrapped off the social networking site.

In a letter written to Mark Zuckerberg that reads:

Dear Mr. Zuckerberg,

Please remove Donald Trump’s Facebook pages from Facebook.  He continues to arbitrarily target individuals and groups according to his racist, bigoted, and delusional beliefs.  Most recently, Mr. Trump has targeted our Muslim brothers and sisters.

You were recently quoted as saying:

“If you’re a Muslim in this community, as the leader of Facebook I want you to know that you are always welcome here and that we will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you.”

Please stand by your statements and help make Facebook a “peaceful and safe environment” for all of our brothers and sisters, by removing Donald Trump from Facebook.

Thank you.

Watch the space, we shall keep you posted………….

  • Deplorable HC For Trump

    This will be the first step in flurry of anti-trust lawsuits against FB. While some banks may be too big to fail, some companies are too big to allow to survive and FB would be one.

      Don’t think it would be “anti-trust” but Drumpf would take FB to court since he may have posted nothing wrong – unless he posted something against FB rules.
      You [for example] can’t do anything to remove a mass murder from posting if s/he didn’t do anything against FB rules.

  • gisabun

    What a dumb subject line. If the article states that the FB posting is fake, why does the subject line says Drumpf was removed?

    The totalitarian left in America has absolutely no respect for people with opinions other than their own . But , like all the great leaders of the left , Stalin , Hitler , Mussolini they have no problem forcing their opinions on YOU , at the point of a gun if necessary .

    • Cat Robson

      It would be a good idea to have a bit of knowledge of history and political ideology before referencing Stalin, Hitler, and Mussolini, as part of the ‘left.’ Totalitarian, yes, but far from left. Hitler and Trump share many values. If you don’t see that, look again.

      • Kevin

        How are Trump and Hitler alike?

      • robbo

        Yeah they both shat in a toilet and farted, ohh wait they both had 2 eyes. You Libturd dipsh-ts are brain dead,
        Hillary over 30 years has been involved in the systematic slaughter of millions of people for resources and the control of Money, like Hitler. She gets money from terrorists and countries who stone women and chop gays heads off in the street and push them off buildings.
        She has stockpiled hundreds of millions of dollars just being a politician with no business, and creating no employment.
        Trump has NOTbeen involved in wiping out countries and caused no deaths.
        Ohh but he said the word “pus y” so all you PC losers whine like the word was coming to an end.
        If she is elected, dont frikken whine like little bit-hes when the TTP wipes out your jobs, and the skirmish continues in Syria, resulting in a nuclear war.
