A high-ranking Facebook executive issued an official apology to pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk Tuesday, admitting the social media giant “mistreated” and “badly mishandled” the conservative twosome.
According to the NY Post, Global Policy Management Chief Monika Bickert admitted the mistake while speaking before the House Judiciary Committee.
“We badly mishandled our communications with them,” she told Congressional leaders.
Diamond and Silk were thrust into the national headlines earlier this year after their pro-Trump content was suddenly removed from Facebook.
The social network claimed their comments posed a threat “to the community.”
The women appeared before a Congressional committee weeks later; slamming the media giant for censoring their opinion and violating their First Amendment rights.

DIAMOND AND SILK: We Voted for Trump to ‘Obtain the AMERICAN DREAM’
Pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk stopped by Fox News Friday to weigh-in on their highly-anticipated testimony before Congress; slamming democrats for trying to silence conservative voices throughout the African American community.
“You had these representatives sitting there as if we had no merit, no claim and they were being very dismissive. I thought they work for the American people?” asked Diamond.
“We’re very thankful to the white republicans that allowed us a seat at the table to speak our truth about what’s going on, Unlike the black [democrats],” added Silk.
“We’ve been on the Democrat plantation. We know what it’s like over there. They’re the ones who condition black people’s minds to make us think that white republicans don’t want us to work, not have any money in our pockets,” she said.
“There’s nothing wrong with black people obtaining the American dream, that’s exactly why we voted for Donald Trump,” they concluded.

BUCKLE UP: 'Unsafe' Diamond and Silk to TESTIFY Before Congress
Proud pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk are heading to the nation’s capital next week; testifying before Congress over allegations of anti-conservative bias on Facebook and other social media platforms.
According to the Washington Post, the fearless twosome have been invited to speak before the House Judiciary Committee just weeks after Facebook labeled them “unsafe to the community” for their vocal support of the President.
“The advent of social media has made it possible for people to connect across continents, explore vast amounts of information, and share meaningful dialogue with friends and strangers,” said Rep. Bob Goodlatte.
“However, this same technology can be used to suppress a particular viewpoint and manipulate public opinion. I look forward to hearing from a wide variety of experts at our hearing to discuss the free speech implications of social media filtering,” he added.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg apologized to Diamond and Silk during his fiery testimony before Congress earlier this month, saying his technical team made a glaring “error” when they deemed the duo “unsafe.”
