Facebook censors Babylon Bee for this?

from The Babylon Bee,

It’s been quite a week.

You may have heard that Facebook penalized the Babylon Bee a few days ago by demonetizing our page for violating their community standards. We submitted an appeal immediately, but after a manual review, Facebook said they stood by their decision. I’m not kidding. They said this article “incites violence.”

Take a minute and read the article. The joke is derived from a frequently quoted scene by British comedy troupe Monty Python. It’s hard to believe this really happened. They actually penalized us for rehashing an old Monty Python joke about burning a witch at the stake — and they stood by the penalty after manually reviewing it!
