A Georgia student believes his passion for politics and his criticism of President Obama has gotten him kicked off Facebook. And he’s only 12 years old.
CJ Pearson first began making a name for himself last week, by posting a video on YouTube, that supported former New York Mayor Rudi Giuliani’s comments regarding Obama’s on ISIS.
“I don’t care about being politically correct at this point,” Pearson said in the video. “President Obama, you don’t love America.”
The video, which has nearly 1.5 million hits, made Pearson a hero to some.
“People are ready to hear a new voice,” Pearson told FOX 5 Monday. “They’re ready a fresh voice that represents our generation.”
But not everyone wants to hear it. Just days after posting his video on Facebook, he realized he could no longer log on to his account. From his home in Augusta, he described his frustration.
“The first amendment is very clear. We have a right to express our opinions regardless of who might disagree. And to silence that voice is a violation of that amendment.”
But a spokesperson for Facebook told FOX 5, their action had nothing to do with Pearson’s politics. He was locked out, they say, because of his age. To join Facebook, you must be 13 years old.
There’s no denying that a user has to be at least 12 years old to use Facebook…but do you think this young future politician’s outspoken comments against the President were the real reason behind him getting the boot?
