Amos Yee banned from Facebook and Twitter for promoting paedophilia

Infamous vlogger Amos Yee has had his Facebook and Twitter accounts banned after posting pro-paedophilia messages online.

This comes after his YouTube and WordPress accounts were banned and his Patreon account (a fund-raising platform) was disabled.

At the moment, his only social media avenue is his Instagram page.

The 19-year-old previously made headlines after he was granted asylum in the United States last year following a 55-day jail sentence in Singapore for uploading videos containing offensive words and gestures towards Christians and Muslims.

According to The Daily Mail via Business Insider Singapore, Yee's Twitter ban was implemented on Saturday (Dec 8) after several users reported his tweets.

The latest included a photo of a young girl posted on Thursday (Dec 6).

His Twitter biography read: "I defend paedophiles publicly on the Internet."

Yee's Facebook is also no longer available.

According to AsiaOne, his last post was uploaded on Sunday (Dec 9).

A supposed reproduction of the post on Reddit showed Yee was recruiting new members for his "pedo-friendly" server.

In the past, Yee has posted videos defending paedophiles on his YouTube account since 2018.

This resulted in it being taken down in May.

In the videos, Yee claimed sexual abuse is determined by consent, not age, and society’s "inhumane" discrimination of paedophiles has led some of them to commit suicide.

Several Twitter users have supported the social media platforms for banning Yee.

Others hope he will be deported back to Singapore.
