Kilmeade Warns Facebook to Watch Out Over Diamond & Silk: Fox News Viewers Are ‘Their Biggest Users’
In light of pro-Trump online celebrities Diamond & Silk’s big day yesterday, in which they were name-dropped by Senator Ted Cruz during Mark Zuckerberg’s Senate testimony, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade told Facebook to “watch out,” as Fox News fans are “probably their biggest users.”
While Cruz accused the Facebook founder of blocking “Trump supporters Diamond & Silk’s page” and demonstrating “a pervasive pattern of political bias,” the two right-wing media stars used the senator’s comments to accuse Zuckerberg of “turning Facebook into a political playground for Democrats.”
The two then went on a spirited rant about Facebook’s new algorithms, which have negatively impacted many media brands — not just conservatives — as the platform has attempted to focus the newsfeed of users more on their personal friends and less on large pages.
“He is so concerned about the midterms,” said one half of the duo, whose real names are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson. “Looks like he is trying to interfere in an election is what we see.”
The two went on to tell Zuckerberg that they “are not animals” and are just “two black chicks” who love America and President Donald Trump.
Kilmeade then jumped in with his warning for Facebook: “Fox News viewers are probably their biggest users, so they better watch what they are doing.”
