Presidential candidate Ferdinand Marcos Jr.‘s spokesperson and chief of staff Atty. Vic Rodriguez cried foul after Facebook suspended his account on April 25, alleging the move was “censorship of the highest degree” and an “interference on a sovereign act.”

Atty. Rodriguez yesterday posted a screenshot of his suspended Facebook account.

“FB/Meta suspended my account because I am for Bongbong Marcos.

“This is censorship of the highest degree and interference on a sovereign act, digital terrorism.

““I will not appeal for I have not violated anything. My duty is to the Filipino people and not to FB/Meta.

“I will continue communicating with the many other forms of media available that are free from filter, censorship, or manipulation from foreign platform providers,” he said in his post.

Based on screenshots shared by Atty. Rodriguez, Meta suspended his account after it found that the account or activity on it did not follow the community standards of Meta, the parent company of Facebook.
