Facebook Deletes Hong Kong Singer’s Page After He Condemned Police Brutality

2020-06-03 20:44
Tommy Yuen (Yuen Man On), a Hong Kong singer who supports Hong Kong’s protests against the Extradition Bill, recently had his Facebook fan page with 80,000 fans suddenly closed by Facebook and could not even search for his own name. After much effort, the fan page was reopened on May 3rd. He expressed in an interview with The Epoch Times that he has a fear of “being disappeared” and suspects that Facebook is being manipulated and controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. Tommy Yuen has been managing his Facebook fan page since August 2019 and since then, many pro-communist netizens have been attacking him for his posts and reporting them to Facebook. For nearly two weeks, his posts about police brutality have been deleted and he was accused of “spreading discriminatory speech against the police” by Facebook. Yuen suspects that Facebook in Hong Kong might have been controlled by the CCP, who does not want the public to know about the problems of police brutality. Yuen believes that if Facebook can suddenly silence a public figure without recourse, then it will be able to do this to any account in the future, so he must come forward and speak up.
