Facebook, Instagram Censor New York Post Story On BLM Co-Founder Buying Million-Dollar Luxury Homes

Facebook and Instagram are censoring a New York Post report detailing how Black Lives Matter Co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors has spent $3.2 million on luxury homes in predominantly white neighborhoods.

Published on Saturday, the Post reports that the self-espoused Marxist purchased four different homes, and also looked at purchasing a residence in the Bahamas at a lavish resort where both golfer Tiger Woods and artist Justin Timberlake have homes. The Post learned that apartments and townhouses in the resort run from $5 million to $20 million.

Last month, the BLM leader purchased a $1.4 million home in Los Angeles in a mostly white neighborhood. After journalist Jason Whitlock posted about the controversy last week, Twitter removed the post and claimed Whitlock’s account “violated the Twitter rules” for “posting private information,” when in fact, this information is publicly available.

Facebook and Instagram have followed suit and attempted to conceal the public information. When a user attempts to share a link to the Post’s story, they are blocked from doing so, then notified that “the link goes against our community standards.”

Spokesman Andy Stone for Facebook did not respond to a request for comment by The Federalist.

Currently, Facebook and Instagram permit users to repost an initial article by The New York Post on the $1.4 million home purchased in Los Angeles. For some reason, the platform is not allowing the follow-up piece to be redistributed.

The BLM co-founder began purchasing homes in 2016, just a few years after the Marxist movement took off. That year, Khan-Cullors purchased a home in Inglewood, California for $510,000 which is now estimated to be worth $800,000.
