Meta reportedly shut down the accounts of Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei for violating its content policy.
Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, has closed the Facebook and Instagram accounts of Iran’s religious leader Ayatollah Khamenei. The statement said Khamenei had repeatedly violated the “dangerous organizations and individuals” policy. No details were given about the ban.
META HAD SAID ‘WE WILL ENFORCE MORE STRICTLY’
On the other hand, Meta announced in October that its policies on violent posts during the Israeli-Palestinian war would be more strictly enforced. Khamenei had posted in support of Hamas during the events of October 7.
Khamenei’s account on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, is active.
