Snoop Dogg backs Louis Farrakhan, tells fans to support him: 'Show some love to a real brother'

After learning that Louis Farrakhan had been kicked off of Facebook and Instagram for "dangerous" speech, rapper Snoop Dogg came to his defense and urged his fans to post their favorite videos of the Nation of Islam leader.

Farrakhan was booted from the social media site, along with other controversial figures including InfoWars pundit Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Joseph Watson. Farrakhan has a history of making anti-Semitic comments, having called Hitler a "great man" in the 1980s and, more recently, accusing Jewish people of being involved in the September 11th terrorist attacks.

"If you're down with it like I'm down with it, post your favorite Mr. Farrakhan videos on your Instagram and Facebook page," Snoop Dogg said in an Instagram video on Thursday evening.

"Show some love to a real brother."

Facebook expanded on its decision to remove a number of accounts on Friday in a statement to CNN Business.

"We've always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology," a spokesperson said. "The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today."
