Conservative North Carolina sisters Lynnette "Diamond" Hardaway and Rochelle "Silk" Richardson told FOX Business’ Lou Dobbs that Facebook said they couldn’t appeal the social media’s decision.
“We put it out on social media and then had a reaction and from there we brought it to light as to what was going on,” Hardaway said.
The social media stars were called to testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday to determine whether Facebook was targeting conservative social media personalities. Hardaway said Facebook has reached out to the duo to hopefully modify its algorithm in attempt to prevent their page from being censored.
“After the hearing on the Hill, somebody did reach out to us from Facebook and we were able to talk over the phone. So they are doing their best to try to make this hear right,” she said.
Diamond and Silk, who became famous for supporting Trump during the 2016 campaign, have amassed more than 1 million followers for their pro-Trump videos.
The sisters are calling out the Democratic Party for ignoring their rights to bringing issue of censorship to light.
“They made it seem like that we can’t obtain the American dream. We had no business making money,” Hardaway said.
