Facebook becomes boycott A & E central

See also

A brand new Facebook page dedicated to boycotting A & E over the suspension of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson is blowing up.

As of Friday morning the page was closing in on an incredible 2 million "likes" in less than one day.

The page boldly proclaims: "This page is to show support for freedom of speech of Americans. Unless Phil is reinstated to the show, we refuse to watch the A & E channel.

The page admin who's named Michael also says he was banned from Facebook because the page was generating too many "likes".

A post then appeared urging people to "get the word out, continue to spread that we will boycott A & E".

Now that the admin was banned, many supporters of Robertson and free speech worry that the site will soon be banned altogether.

Mark Zuckerberg has yet to comment on that concern.
