Conservative commentator and black exit activist Candace Owens is suing Facebook claiming its fake fact-checkers have defamed her.
Owens claims that Facebook’s so-called fact-checkers are targeting her and their fake fact-checking has served as the basis for Facebook to demonitize her page, according to the Daily Wire.
“Quite literally a doctor gave his opinion about COVID-19, which I shared, and Facebook issued a strike on my account because they said only information that they agree with about COVID-19 … was acceptable,” she explained. “I decided I was not going to give up and sit down. The fact-checkers … are activists for the left that shut down your speech if they don’t like it.”
“It is time to fact-check the fact-checkers,” Owens added. “I’m going to put these suckers through discovery and figure out what the relationship is that they have with Facebook.”
Owens recently launched a website to raise money for her legal battle against Facebook.

“Our freedoms are being stripped away. The overlords of Big Tech are determining what Americans can and cannot say, share, like, and post. Support our legal efforts today as we fight back against Facebook’s fact-checkers, confronting those who are suppressing free speech, thought, and expression across our great country,” the website says.
For this fight, Owens hired attorney attorney Todd McMurtry — who was part of former Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann’s legal team.
