Facebook Banning All Mentions of ‘Stop the Steal’ Ahead of Biden Inauguration

Facebook said Monday it is removing all content containing the phrase “stop the steal[.]”
The phrase refers to President Trump’s false claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him. Trump supporters also organized a rally in November after the election called “Stop the Steal” that drew thousands of Trump supporters to the nation’s capital.
“We’re removing content containing the phrase ‘stop the steal’ under our Coordinating Harm policy from Facebook & Instagram,” Facebook announced in a press release on Monday afternoon.
“We removed the Stop the Steal group in November and continue to remove Pages, groups & events that violate our policies,” Facebook said.
