“I don’t like censorship”
As people are still reeling from the coordinated banning of President Trump across social media platforms, Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador condemned the decision of America’s Big Tech tyrants.
Mexico’s president on Thursday blasted social media companies for blocking the accounts of President Donald Trump for his part in chaotic scenes in Washington on Wednesday, again appearing to cleave to his U.S. counterpart in a contentious dispute.
. . . . Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was reluctant to comment on what occurred at the Capitol, reiterating a position that his government does not meddle in the affairs of other nations.
Twitter Inc, Facebook Inc and Snap Inc temporarily blocked Trump’s accounts as they scrambled to contain his baseless claims about the presidential election amid the riots.
That decision, said Lopez Obrador, was not acceptable.
“I don’t like censorship,” he told a news conference. “I don’t like anyone to be censored and for them to have their right taken away to send a message on Twitter or on Facebook.”
