Far-left activist Shaun King has been banned from Instagram over his pro-Palestine posts, he claimed in a statement where he accused Israel of genocide.

King, who has repeatedly been accused of fraud and lying about his identity, shared a video on the account of Gaza photographer Wissam Nassar on Monday where he claimed he was banned from the platform over his posts on the Hamas-Israel war.

‘First and foremost – I’m safe and I’ve been through much harder times than being banned from Instagram. I’ve been through hard times. This is not hard times. Hard times is Gaza right now,’ he said.

‘What’s clear is meta, Facebook and Instagram  have decided to stand in the way of those of us that are fighting for the human rights and dignity of Palestinians. I wont stand for it, I’m going to keep fighting everywhere I can.’

A spokesperson for Meta told DailyMail King’s Instagram account was suspended because ‘due to multiple instances of praise for designated entities in violation of our policies.’

King’s Facebook account was still active as of Monday morning. 

The activist, known as one of the loudest voices behind the Black Lives Matter movement, had 5.6million followers on Instagram, where he fiercely criticized Israel and the US following the October 7 terrorist attacks against the Jewish nation.

He has repeatedly framed the resulting war as a genocide against Palestinians by Israel financed by the United States government.

‘Frustrated that Instagram has banned me for fighting for Palestine, and speaking up for the human rights and dignity of Palestinians, but I refuse to betray my values and principles by staying silent about this genocide and the war crimes in Gaza and the West Bank,’ he added on Monday about the social media ban.

‘You can NEVER mince words about genocide. You can never mince words about war crimes. You MUST speak truth to power every way you know how.

‘Please promise me that you will now go harder for Palestine than ever before. OK?’

King last made headlines when he was accused of lying by the family of two American hostages who he claimed he helped free from Hamas.

King has a history of stretching the truth, even with those he claims to help, having in the past used donor funds to purchase an award-winning show dog which he later returned for having a ‘little too much energy.’ 

At the time he claimed he needed the pricey guard dog for 24/7 security for his family due to the barrage of threats from white supremacists, who he alleges have tried to break into his home and harass his children. 

He has also been accused of fraud on various occasions, including by the mother of Tamir Rice – a 12-year-old Ohio boy killed by Cleveland police – who claims he held unauthorized fundraisers in her son’s name. 

King has battled allegations of fraud for many years, but has not been formally accused of any wrongdoing in connection to Grassroots, which he founded to help get progressive elected to office. 

Most infamously, he was accused of lying about being the victim of a horrific hate crime in his youth as a result of his race, which he allegedly faked his race to take advantage of a Oprah Winfrey scholarship.
