Hammers fan banned - for posting victory video [video]

A West Ham United supporter has been banned from Facebook - for posting a video featuring Hammers fans celebrating Friday night's win over Tottenham.


BANNED! Karen Balding was removed from Facebook - for posting a celebratory video


Karen Balding was part of the 55,000+ crowd at the Olympic Stadium who watched West Ham's 1-0 win over Tottenham - a result that effectively ended the North Londoners' title challenge.

Upon leaving the stadium with her party of family and friends at the final whilst, Karen noticed a group of West Ham supporters celebrating the win and decided to film it - later publishing her video (which you may see below) to Facebook.


However she was stunned to discover this morning that, as a result, she had been banned from the popular social media platform after Facebook upheld an anonymous complaint regarding her post.

"I was at the game on Friday and filmed some fans singing," Karen told KUMB. "Although they were swearing, I was surprised to discover I'd been reported - and subsequently banned - for posting offensive material!"



Facebook's banning notice


Karen, who has been a member of Facebook for several years remains unable to access her account.

The social media platform - which happily turns a blind eye to hundreds of thousands of groups promoting offensive and illegal activity, to which it provides a safe haven - were unavailable for comment.
