From BBC - October 12, 2017

US rapper Lil B, known for his outspoken views on social media, is facing a 30-day ban under Facebook's hate speech policies.

The musician has expressed anger over the suspension and fans have criticised the ban on Twitter.

Facebook said some of his posts violated its policies on hate speech.

The posts, according to publications with which he later shared the messages, related to white people and gun violence.

Political news website The Hill republished two of the banned posts.

They read: "White people are the only ones who really love they guns U can tell they are violent people! I do not live in fear I do not need a gun - Lil B."
