Largest Black Lives Matter Facebook Page Exposed as Fraud

The largest Black Lives Matter page on Facebook has been reported as a fraud run by a White man in Australia who used it to rake in more than $100,000 in donations.

The page, which has been suspended, had nearly 700,000 followers, compared to 322,000 for the official Black Lives Matter page, CNN reported.

Prominent BLM activist DeRay Mckesson said in a statement that the movement’s fast rise has left it vulnerable to other schemes.

“It’s important to remember the movement was organic and no organizations started the protests that spread across the country,” Mckesson said. “The consequences of that is it hasn’t been easy to think about authenticity in the digital space.”
