Big tech censorship is taking its toll on an actor who insists on speaking out against Hamas atrocities, he told FOX News on Thursday.
“I actually just showed the real-time footage that was shared on social media,” Nate Buzolic said. “And I think this really represents a clear, coordinated effort by groups to shut down content and accounts like me that are exposing the atrocities committed by Hamas since Saturday.”
Buzolic claimed that Instagram shut down his account three times because of pro-Israel posts. TikTok, meanwhile, claimed to have published false information and removed a video posted about a child kidnapped in Gaza.

TikTok did not respond in time for broadcast.
Buzolic, responding to Meta’s comment, called the language avoidant.
“This is just a classic way of avoiding responsibility and trying to sit in the middle. I will say this to everyone watching – when it comes to dealing with this Israeli conflict -Palestinian, which has been going on for a very long time, and a lot of people want to avoid it because of the nuances, the fact is that what we saw on Saturday does not give people a choice,” he said.
“Either they are in a position where they are going to support and enable terrorism to exist…or we are going to support this nation that now faces one of the greatest threats…”
