After Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday with his encouragement, social media giants decided to ban him from their platforms.

Facebook suspended his accounts at least until the end of his presidency and he was permanently banned from Twitter.

Earlier on Friday, before Twitter banned it, Cohen posted a passionate tweet urging the company to do so.

Cohen gave a speech at an Anti-Defamation League event in late 2019, arguing for more restrictions on statements allowed on social media.

“All of this hatred and violence is facilitated by a handful of internet companies which are the greatest propaganda machine in history,” he said.

At the end of last year, he released a Borat sequel that went viral for an embarrassing moment involving Trump’s backup Rudy Giuliani.

“Borat” daughter Tutar, played by Maria Bakalova, was interviewing Giuliani for a segment – which he assumed was a real interview – at a hotel.

“I don’t want to selfishly suggest that people would watch Borat and vote for Trump, but that was the goal,” he said.
