Twitter, Facebook & Instagram disabled Donald Trump's Video Tribute to George Floyd

AlbertflexAlbertflex in June 08, 2020

Social media giants, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram disabled US President Donald Trump's campaign tribute video to George Floyd on their platforms on Friday, citing copyright complaints.

The video, which shows photos and videos of nationwide protest marches and instances of violence as follow up to Floyd's death, has Trump speaking in the background.

Floyd's death last week after a fatal encounter with a police officer has led to nationwide protests. In the widely circulated video footage, a white officer was seen kneeling on Floyd's neck as the African American gasped for air and repeatedly groaned, "I can't breathe," before passing out.

"We respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives," a Twitter representative said.

Facebook, which owns photo and video-sharing network Instagram, said it removed the post after receiving the creator's copyright complaint under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

"Organizations that use original art shared on Instagram are expected to have the right to do so," it said in a statement.

Exactly! That serve him right,but he shouldn't have created the video in the social media background whereas his people the rules has a strong protest. Thus,he should have know the consequences before doing so. But to my own opinon,he doesn't presided over his people well.

President Donald trump would have allowed his video to thrive and it should have been in respect of Floyd. At least all should be aware that no one is against the law

Deleting his video is very suspicious, And the truth can never be hidden, Floyd's death is not just ordinary, something is behind it.

That's normal thing because he didn't give a considerable response towards the man's death even when they were protesting, he was against it by ordering armed men to pursue them so for that his response wasn't justifiable

Floyd will be remembered for changing the us political sphere. Creating a video with others creativity without their consent is bad

He wants to live off someone else's efforts. Serves him right. In my own opinion I think Donald thrump is very lazy and incompetent to continue to rule America I say they vote him out!!!

That's not nice at all, even though he may be a racist, but it doesn't limit his rights as a social media user and he is free to express his opinion. It is a free world.

BlecynBlecyn in Jun 12, 2020 Reply

I think he needs true justice... It should be done because his death wasn't a minor one. Trump didn't do right by deleting his video..

Black life matters.... Deleting the video only gives off that the blacks are not safe wherever they are.... Justice for Floyd

I love that. Great work to those social media. 👍 Trump is the first racist president I've ever seen

BrainyBrainy in Jun 15, 2020 Reply

Trump has been one of the best president the world has ever produce but when it comes to Floyd's death I think something is behind it. Now that Twitter, Facebook and Instagram has disabled Donald Trump's tribute to Floyd's death we should not put the blame on him.

This is serious, and it shouldn't be blanked out of Media, in order for individuals and citizens to know what going on. In fact they have no reason to do that.

A man of selfishness, only cares about himself. Though he may speak the truth sometime but there are some truth that don't deserve to be known.
