The video, created by comedy group DWECK, was blacklisted last week after amassing 2.5 million views, with Facebook claiming it violated their rules against “hate speech.”
The video was finally restored on Thursday.
“Your post is back on Facebook. We’re sorry we got this wrong. We reviewed your video again and it does follow our Community Standards,” declared Facebook in a notification to the DWECK Facebook page. “Your feedback helps us do better.”
DWECK President Victor Dweck commented to Breitbart News, “Our social media manager said he’s never seen this happen before, so I have to imagine it was thanks to the pressure Facebook received from your article.”
