Hailing from North Carolina, the sisters ― real names Lynette Hardaway (Diamond) and Rochelle Richardson (Silk) ― have shown an enthusiasm for pretty much everything Trump does that appears unmatched by any in the Republican establishment.
“They deemed us, our brand—because Diamond and Silk is the brand, we’re two women, we are the brand—unsafe to the community,” Diamond said.
“We are two women of color, how are we unsafe?” Hardaway said, according to Fox News. “We don’t sell drugs. We don’t belong to no gangs. It’s offensive, it’s appalling, it taints our brand.”
Diamond and Silk are sisters and fervent Trump fans with 1.4 million Facebook followers. They recently said they were deemed “unsafe” by Facebook for their humorous and provocative pro-Trump videos and began to have the reach of their posts limited by the social media behemoth.
A Facebook spokesperson seemed to confirm the email, saying, “We have communicated directly with Diamond And Silk about this issue.
The message they received last week was inaccurate and not reflective of the way we communicate with our community and the people who run Pages on our platform.
Mark Zuckerberg admitted that censoring videos from a pair of sisters known as Diamond and Silk was a mistake.
Zuckerberg said, “In that specific case, our team made an enforcement error, and we have already gotten in touch with them to reverse it.”
Just so you know, we will always have our Presidents back.
