Diamond & Silk to Mark Zuckerberg: Apology Not Accepted
'He's apologizing because he got caught.'
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted that his company was wrong to label Lynnette "Diamond" Hardaway and Rochelle "Silk" Richardson “dangerous” and “unsafe to the community.”
In newly released testimony from his April Senate hearing, Zuckerberg said Facebook "mishandled" communication with Diamond and Silk for months and it should not have restricted the conservative social media stars.
“Their frustration was understandable, and we apologized to them," Zuckerberg told Congress.

Diamond and Silk, however, aren't accepting Zuckerberg's apology.
They claim there are still algorithms in place that make it difficult for their fans to view their content -- and other conservatives' content -- on Facebook.
"If he was really apologetic for it, he would take those algorithms off of our page, so that our followers and fans can see our posts and our posts can reach our fans," Diamond said on "Fox & Friends." "I don't think that he's sorry. I think he's apologizing because he got caught."
She said they are still receiving complaints from people who are having trouble viewing their content on Facebook, and she said it's wrong for the social media giant to dictate what users can and can't see.
"Mark Zuckerberg, what he should do is hire Diamond and Silk because we can tell him what's wrong with his own platform," Silk said.
