Social media giants Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have recently removed a Trump campaign video after dozens of copyright claims were registered against it. Sources reported, that the video which was four-minute-long, comprised of images of George Floyd, who was killed on May 25th in an incident of police brutality. The video of the incident incited protests all over the U.S as well as in many countries around the world.
Facebook and Instagram deleted the posts that included the video while Twitter disabled it from its platform. After President Trump questioned the removal and called it "illegal", Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey took to his platform and replied that it was neither true nor illegal, and was taken down after the company received a DMCA complaint.
A Facebook spokesperson said that they too received copyright complaints and further added that organizations have the right to their content. YouTube, on the other hand, said the video did not violate its policies and now the video has more than half a million views right now.
It hasn't been mentioned who was behind the copyright complaint about the video labeled "Healing Not Hatred." that comprises of images of protests over Floyd's death.
