In a statement to the Charlotte Observer, a Facebook spokesperson confirmed the company had already restored the page and would be apologizing personally to its administrator.

Graham published a status update claiming that “Facebook is trying to define the truth” by determining that a 2016 post about the controversial North Carolina “bathroom bill” violated its standards regarding hate speech.

The company spokesperson said a member of the 15,000-member content review team erroneously flagged the post for “dehumanizing language” and suspended the account.
