The Coup’s Facebook Problem: It Wasn’t Censorship

On Monday, The Coup’s label Epitaph Records attempted to purchase a sponsored Facebook post to promote its new video for “The Magic Clap” (which is awesome, BTW) — and today, the Oakland hip-hop outfit’s leader Boots Riley wrote on his Facebook page that he thought the site was censoring the video because of its political message. It turns out, according to Facebook, it was not a case of censorship (phew!) and the site has agreed to approve the sponsored post.
