The spokesperson also said that the method they use to evaluate potential violators is an extensive one and it is the one which made them come up with that decision and ban those high profile accounts.

The crackdown of accounts comes at a time when Facebook has decided to do whatever it takes to get rid of hate speech and bullying of people on the social media networking site.

In March the company also banned praise support and the representation of white supremacy and white nationalism from facebook.

The accounts had not yet been pulled down from Facebook by Thursday in the afternoon.

The ban of high profile people from Facebook is among some of the latest strategies used to clean up the social media network.
