According to Facebook and Instagram spokesperson explained why they removed the video; it had received a copyright complaint under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Those who are the real owners have the right to file a complaint. While on the other side YouTube did not ban the video from its portal and says it did not have the material that violated the copyright. The video which was uploaded on YouTube got almost half a million views.
The one who complained about the copyright video which was named as a “Healing not Hatred” includes images of the George Floyd death and Trump’s voice over speech where he says the death of Floyd was a severe tragedy.
