It’s “Cinco-de-Bye-Oh:” Trump Ally Kicked Off Another Social Platform
It’s a good thing that MyPillow guy Mike Lindell started Frank Speech, his very own social media platform. As of today, Vimeo became the latest social media site that won’t have him any more.
On the same day that Facebook’s permanent ban of Donald Trump was affirmed, the video platform has “terminated” Lindell’s MyPillow account for violating its terms of service. As of Wednesday afternoon, users clicking on pages for the “Lindell Management” Vimeo account are greeted with the message “Sorry, we couldn’t find that page.”
The Trump-loving, election-challenging Lindell already had been permanently kicked off of Twitter “due to repeated violations of our Civil Integrity Policy,” the platform announced in January. Much like Trump did earlier in the day when he learned that he continues to be banned from Facebook and Instagram, Lindell railed against the Vimeo decision.
“This is worse than what Twitter did to me and my company!” Lindell said in a brief phone interview on Wednesday with The Daily Beast. “This affects my business, the Lindell Recovery Network, and the entrepreneurs who I work with.” Lindell also sent The Daily Beast a screenshot of what he said was an email he and his team received from Vimeo on Wednesday at 12:36 p.m. ET, and it reads, “Your account was terminated for violating Vimeo’s Terms of Service…and Community Guidelines. We do not allow accounts that upload content created by or mainly featuring a banned user. As the purpose of your account is to promote content from a banned user, it has been removed. We wish you the best of luck in finding a hosting platform better suited to your needs.”
