Evangelist Franklin Graham was banned from posting on Facebook for 24 hours last week, a spokesperson for the social media giant confirmed to The Charlotte Observer on Saturday.

The spokesperson said that Graham was mistakenly banned from the site due to the contents of a post he shared in 2016 that was flagged for violating a company policy banning “dehumanizing language” and excluding people based on factors like sexual orientation and race. 

The representative went on to say that the mistake was made by the company’s content review team — which is comprised of 15,000 members — and that the company has since restored Graham’s account and the post in question.

The company has said it will also apologize to the administrator of Graham’s Facebook page, according to the spokesperson.

    A mistake, my eye. Facebook does not believe in free speech, especially when that speech comes from conservative Christians.
