CANDACE Owens has threatened to sue Facebook after her page was reportedly "demonetized" for comments about Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.
According to Owens, the social media platform has suppressed her page after she posted comments about Joe Biden's veep pick entering the Senate in 2017.
"I am SO EXCITED that we get to watch Kamala Harris, who swore into congress as an 'Indian-American', now play the 'I’m a black a woman' card all the way until November," Owens wrote. "Fun times ahead! #MAGA"
The post accompanied a photo from the Associated Press from January 3, 2017 during Harris' swearing in to the Senate.
The post is currently labeled as "False Information" and says it was checked by "independent fact-checkers."
The false information relates to the suggestion that Harris has only recently identified as black.
In interviews, the senator has reportedly talked regularly about how she was raised black by her mother who was from India.
"I never said that Kamala never said she was black," Owens said in response. "I saw she swore into Congress as Indian-American, which was true."
Owens revealed her intention of legal action during an interview with Breitbart News.
Owens told the news outlet, "Fact checkers can't tell me what I'm looking forward to," she added. "That is the blatant censoring of an opinion."
Owens said she will be taking legal action against Facebook due to the censorship.
"Facebook is now hiding behind fact checkers to censor people. They say it's third party but these people obviously have to be in coordination with Facebook."
Owens also called the censorship "election interference."
The founder of the BLEXIT Foundation said a lawyer is required for each case of censorship or whenever you get "fact checked."
"All they [fact checkers' have to do is find one opposite opnion, and they can give you a false rating. You have to send a legal letter every time to get it reversed."
Owens added that the process to remove "false information" ratings from her Facebook page is costly.
She also revealed that she is setting up a legal fund to cover the cost of the upcoming lawsuit against Facebook.
Facebook did not reply to a request for comment.
