Facebook Demonetizes Babylon Bee Over a Joke - Not Kidding
Quote:Facebook is demonetizing the Christian, political satire page “The Babylon Bee” after they published an article satirizing Sen. Mazie Hirono’s comments during the Amy Coney Barrett hearings in a fictional depiction.

The Bee’s CEO Seth Dillon announced the demonetization on Tuesday in a tweet, claiming that the big tech company pulled down the article based on a “regurgitated joke from a Monty Python movie.”

“So after a manual review, Facebook says they stand by their decision to pull down this article and demonetize our page. I’m not kidding,” he wrote. “They say this article ‘incites violence.’ It’s literally a regurgitated joke from a Monty Python movie!”

Remember the "she's a witch!" scene in the movie? Read this to see how they skewered the dumbest Senator in the U.S. over her performance in the Barrett hearings for the SC.


I was unaware that Not The Bee is a page also owned by the Babylon Bee for real news.
