Conservative commentator Steven Crowder announced Monday that his show, Louder With Crowder, has filed an antitrust lawsuit against Facebook in a federal court in the District of Columbia.
A press release the show posted on its website Monday says the lawsuit alleges “unfair competition and false advertising,” along with other “deceptive” acts by Facebook.
“Facebook lured consumers and creators to spend money and provide data and views under the promise of not engaging in political, racial or religious bias in enforcing their policies, but they have done so both expressly and secretively, and hence, the suit,” the release states.
Crowder’s attorney, Bill Richmond, formally announced the complaint during an appearance on Crowder’s show Monday.
