For unknown reasons, social media giant Facebook has taken down “Anyone But Leni” (ABL) group on Sunday, January 23.

“FB, why have you taken down our page for no reason at all? Are you censoring our thoughts and posts now? Or has our page just become too popular for some people’s comfort?” decried Christine Cunanan, creator of the Facebook public group.

Cunanan, TravelLife Magazine publisher and editor, stressed that the group did not have any violations and flagged posts for the record, in which she provided screenshots. She is with high hopes that the suspension was caused by “an overzealous woke’s work” and not of the company’s new policy.

ABL was created on December 19, 2021 and had around 56,000 members before it was disabled. Aside from its “interest in Philippine politics,” the group is also obviously aimed at the May 2022 presidential elections and stands as a united opposition to the candidacy of presidential aspirant and vice president Leni Robredo.

Cunanan has since then dismissed suppositions that she was being paid by former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., asserting that she is not in any way related to the Marcos camp or any party opposing Robredo’s presidential bid.

To continue their mission, the unfazed magazine editor created the new public group “A Beautiful Life”. In just over an hour, the group already amassed 6,200 members.

The new group is said to be an avenue for individuals “devoted to living a beautiful life with humor, laughter and intellectual discussions.”
