Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Monday alleged Facebook censored her personal account after she was banned by Twitter.

According to screenshots of Facebook’s messages to her, it appears that Facebook prevented Greene from posting or commenting for 24 hours.

“Facebook has joined Twitter in censoring me. This is beyond censorship of speech,” Greene said on social media platform Gettr. “I’m an elected Member of Congress representing over 700,000 U.S. tax-paying citizens and I represent their voices, values, defend their freedoms, and protect the Constitution.”

In her social media post, Greene suggested that Facebook blocked her account because she made a post regarding COVID-19 vaccine numbers provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) VAERS, or Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. COVID-19 is the illness caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

“Who appointed Twitter and Facebook to be the authorities of information and misinformation? When Big Tech decides what political speech of elected Members is accepted and what’s not then they are working against our government and against the interest of our people,” Greene added.

A spokesperson for Meta, Facebook’s parent company, told news outlets Monday that her account won’t be removed.

“A post violated our policies and we have removed it; but removing her account for this violation is beyond the scope of our policies,” the spokesperson said. The Epoch Times has contacted Meta for comment.

Before Greene’s ban, Twitter also suspended the account of mRNA vaccine technology contributor Dr. Robert Malone last week, just days before he was interviewed by podcaster Rogan.

And over the weekend, Twitter temporarily suspended media company Grabien’s account after it posted a video that included an interview with Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), who criticized pharmaceutical corporations.

Malone, Greene, Rogan, and Grabien now all have Gettr accounts.

Malone, for his part, wrote on Substack that he believed his Twitter account—which had more than 500,000 followers—would be ultimately banned. On the platform, Malone often posted content that was critical of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, describing such rules as unethical.

“Today it did. Over a half million followers gone in a blink of an eye. That means I must have been on the mark, so to speak. Over the target,” he wrote on Substack. “It also means we lost a critical component in our fight to stop these vaccines being mandated for children and to stop the corruption in our governments, as well as the medical-industrial complex and pharmaceutical industries.”
