Published

on

One of the largest social media giants in the world banned a video that mocking the mainstream press for spinning every story into a hit piece on President Donald J. Trump and his supporters.

“The Firefighter” is a video created by DWECK comedy group, which had over 2.5 million views on YouTube before it was banned as “hate speech.”

In the beginning of the comedy sketch, the firefighter is being interviewed about saving an entire family from a burning building, and is called a hero. But then the interviewer then spins the narrative, showing the firefighter wearing a Make America Great Again hat and calls him a racist.

The video is a clear spoof on how the mainstream press dictates narratives by providing only context that it wants its viewers to see, allowing it to frame stories in any way it sees fit.

“Facebook took our viral sketch “The Fireman” (2.5M views) down for ‘hate speech,; and starting removing our content. We won’t take this sitting down. In the meantime, here’s the YouTube version:” DWECK said on Twitter.
