CJ Pearson’s viral video last weekend in which he criticized President Obama provoked a real reaction from viewers – all 1.4 million of them.

But the 12-year-old middle schooler apparently provoked a reaction from Facebook, too. They suspended his account.

Pearson has this posted on his Facebook page:

I am having my Editor, Alan Davidson post on my behalf on this page while Facebook continues to lock me out. The 1st amendment is obviously not a big concern to the powers at be at Facebook, but we will continue to fight back!

He went to check the page after school on Friday and that’s when he learned his account and page had been locked for “suspicious activity.”

He tried in vain to have his page reactivated, but to no avail, according to the Examiner.

“Time and time again, Facebook has shut down many conservative accounts after they decide to speak up,” Pearson said on Fox & Friends Sunday.

“When a person decides to speak up, their voice shouldn’t be hindered because of someone disagreeing.”

Pearson shot to Internet stardom last weekend when his video appeared on The American Mirror, the Drudge Report and several other sites.

    Socialist jews like Zuckerterd gave up their religion and worship the dollar. He is a liar and a coward.

  • BandCamper

    When socialist jews discriminate against young black kids, the socialist jew media stays silent…..and only a few sites who value the truth print it.

  • BandCamper

    Maybe someday people who actually care about rules and laws will rise up against Adolph Obama and Adolph Zuckerterd

  • marstob

    Ah that explains why some of my facebook pasted issues disappeared.

    Warmed-over Herman Cain bullshit.
    Nobody plays the victim like a right winger.

    Facebook, don’t you love America??? Just saw C.J.Pearson’s video on our pretender-in-chief’s loyalties, and it seemed a sincere, impassioned, and very civil critique of his questionable intentions. What is wrong with you, Facebook??

  • Daddy-Government Knows Best

    He doesn’t like Obama? He must be a racist!

  • Andrea Cooper

    I just want to know; why is his race even and aspect in this case? Facebook suspends middle schoolers Facebook for slamming Obama. Would have been suffice.

  • Rob Collins

    12 year olds aren’t allowed to be on Facebook. Facebook requires everyone to be at least 13 years old before they can create an account. That’s why his account was suspended.

    Snopes has this:

    “Facebook itself provided the answer to why CJ Pearson’s account was suspended: at 12 years old, the boy did not meet Facebook’s terms and conditions which require all users to be 13 or older. Once Pearson drew attention to himself, it was clear his account was in violation of Facebook’s stated rules and it was suspended.”

    And Facebook does allow C. J. Pearson to have a fb account called “younggeorgians,” which is also his dot org website.

    Face book was wrong for doing this to this young man and why did they do it because he was right.

  • Orangezag

    Murica!

  • Patricia Ann Kohler

    This is so wrong and I am so sorry but don’t give up CJ! You are a very smart and brave young man.

  • Play Righter

    This young man should enlist the assistance of Al Sharpton and Benjamin Crump — and go after Facebook for racial discrimination. Surely this is an example of white supremacy and black disrespect from Zuckerberg… (/sarc?/)

    couldnt get the audio to play

  • Rita

    Why is “color” even an issue? This young man is polite and well spoken. He makes his case with valid points. I think he rocks!

    I have been part of a group who reported child porn on fb and we literally had 100’s report videos and stills of child porn and i can tell you they never removed it nor the page. The page once went down but was back up by the next am. I have also reported pages linked to it of kids as young as 10 and nothing done. How sad this boy who is smarter than the people who voted obummer in gets put into fb jail.

    When Facebook says users must be over the age of 13, it is a requirement NOT a recommendation. This is because of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA).

    The wise avoid social media period.
    There is no reason to help make Facebook investors richer.
    Please do not take this as supporting Facebook, I sure do not. I feel they have probably singled this young man out for what ever reason; tromping on his free speech rights; however, if you monitor Facebook accounts of the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Joe Pags and others, you will find they do allow some pretty strong statements against Obama to be posted.
    That said though part of “artist sums up Obama foreign policy in one disturbing painting” was either censored or Limbaugh edited it to try and stay out of trouble on his Rush Limbaugh and the EIB Network page. Clicking the photo though links to the complete art.

    IF THIS IS TRUE, FB SHOULD BE SUED FOR INFRINGEMENT OF THIS YOUNG MAN’S RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH. THEY NEVER BLOCK TRASH WHEN IT KEEPS COMING MY WAY ON FB DESPITE MY REPEATED REQUESTS, BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THAT A TRASH PEDDLER HAS JUST AS MUCH RIGHT TO PEDDLE HIS TRASH IN MY FACE (OR MORE) THAN I HAVE TO REQUEST THAT IT BE WITHDRAWN. SHOWS YOU HOW PHONY, HYPOCRITICAL AND BIASED THEIR POLICY OF “FREE EXPRESSION” IS. IT CAN BE EXPRESSED, ONLY IF “THEY” AGREE WITH IT. THEY DON’T CARE WHAT YOU THINK.

  • sjman

    You have to be 13 to have an account-he is 12. Smart kid, but not quite smart enough to avoid the spotlight – or follow the published FB rules, however, meaningless they are since all one has to do is lie about your age and check the box on T&C.

  • Jason Sellers

    Reason #2,379,501 of why I left Facebook. They don’t care about the 1st Amendment any more than they care about the 4th. Glad to have found a new home on MeWe! 😀

  • Mike_E_V

    Well said CJ. The Prez has never, truly had to fight for anything. He doesn’t grasp the concept and refuses to recognize it. For those of us who have fought the fight and are in retirement years, it is our hope there are more like you out there. It is the only hope this Nation has of surviving progressivism. Don’t let Facebook slow you down and keep your enemies close.

  • Richard Ingram

    I wonder if Obama would consider CJ as someone who could have been his own son.

  • woodyrogers1

    The minimum age to open a facebook account is 13.

  • ChocoCatSF

    Whining is the conservative MO. Also, it seems many conservatives simply don’t understand the freedom of speech part of the First Amendment. What a shock.

    Perhaps facebook should be forced to bake a cake for a same sex wedding. They are a bizness. They must not be allowed to discriminate against Intelligent black youth. Oh I forgot, their masters control the Justice Department.
