Keri Hilson is under fire for her comments about censorship in the wake of Donald Trump’s social media ban.The R&B singer shared her thoughts after Twitter permanently suspended the president from its platform on Friday (Jan. 8). Taking to Instagram, Hilson explained why the move sets a “dangerous” precedent and violates freedom of speech.
“This may be funny, but it is a little dangerous too. Take Trump out of it for a moment,” wrote Hilson. “A democracy must include freedom of speech. Imagine other leaders or popular figures not being able to voice their opinion if it opposes the majority of world leaders…Our freedom of speech being taken from us. Slowly but surely (censorship).”
