Twitter Disables Trump’s Tribute Video To George Floyd, Then Explains Why After Receiving Criticism

-

- Advertisment -

A video uploaded by Donald Trump’s campaign team which pays tribute to George Floyd who was allegedly killed by a police officer has been disabled by Twitter authorities.

According to Twitter, the video is the subject of a copyright complaint.

The three-minute 45-second video uploaded on Trump’s YouTube channel was tweeted by his campaign on June 3 and the tribute video was retweeted nearly 7,000 times by people including the US president and his son Donald Jr.

Reacting to the video’s removal, the Trump campaign accused the social media site and its co-founder, Jack Dorsey, of censoring an “uplifting and unifying message from President Trump”.

The Trump campaign urged its followers make a separate YouTube video go viral.

Floyd’s death has led to nationwide protests and in the widely circulated video footage of his encounter with White policemen, a white officer was seen kneeling on Floyd’s neck as Floyd gasped for air and repeatedly groaned, “I can’t breathe,” before passing out.

The nearly four-minute clip posted on Wednesday shows images of peaceful protests while Trump speaks of the “grave tragedy” before moving to a warning about violence from “radical leftwing groups” .

Twitter in it’s defence, said the deleted video on the president’s campaign account was affected by its copyright policy.

“We respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives,” a Twitter representative said on Friday.

Twitter has entered a ‘war like’ mood with Trump after putting a fact check on Trump’s tweet which made Trump accuse the social media company of bias towards conservative voices or opinions.

Trump responded with an executive order that seeks to narrow social media companies’ protection from liability over the content posted on their platforms.
