An activist moderator on the popular /r/Comics subreddit, which boasts membership of over 1.7 million readers, banned promotion of prolific comic book creator Mike Baron’s new book Thin Blue Line for “misinformation and racism.”
User /u/thebleedingfool shared an article from The Federalist, where Baron promoted the book while also talking about his history with comics and his views on the current state of law enforcement.
In response to the sharing of this article /r/Comics moderator SickBurnBro replied to the original posting writing, “Hello thebleedingfool! Unfortunately, your submission has been removed for the following reason(s): Misinformation and racism.”
The moderator added, “If you feel that your submission has been removed in error, please message us so we can take a look. Thanks!”
Baron’s Thin Blue Line tells the story “follows police officer Valeria Baca and her partner Bob Mack as their detail guarding the mayor turns into a fight for survival.”
