Facebook apologizes for suspending Mark Dice's account for comments about Dove's controversial transgender mom ad

Conservative YouTuber Mark Dice recently had his Facebook account suspended for sharing his opinion about a controversial Dove ad featuring a “transgender mom”.

Dice posted an article about the ad and wrote that, “Excuse me now while I go grab some Irish Spring to clean up my puke.”

He was then given a notification from Facebook saying he violated their “community standards” and blocked him from posting for 24 hours.

After reports from Heat Street and other outlets, Facebook reversed the ban.

“A member of our team accidentally removed something you posted on Facebook. This was a mistake, and we sincerely apologize for this error,” Facebook said in a notification to Dice.

If it wasn't for Dice's influence, one has to wonder if Facebook would have corrected its mistake. It wasn't long ago that the site faced criticism after it was revealed to be suppressing conservative opinions while promoting left-wing ones.

That baby will have a confusing life trying to explain that his father and mother are the same.

Deborah: I agree.
I had words with them a couple of years ago when I challenged them on ‘using’ women to sell their product(s). Their products are equally inferior to many and it is only through their marketing tactics that they are luring women into believing this company and their products are working ‘for’ women. Sorry, women are ‘working’ for Dove. People like Oprah were endorsing this ‘average’ looking woman campaign.
Hogwash!
They’re manipulators and users.

Dove is the company that covers little ducklings in oil, and then promotes their liquid dish soap. What a joke!

I’m glad I don’t buy dove products, and if I did, I would take them back, and exchange them for products of a different company, that isn’t warped beyond belief. You can’t even watch TV now because every ad and every show is promoting evil.
