thisquality understands deranged individual Brad Flutey has unfortunately lost his Facebook page Outspoken after it was unpublished, Friday.
He used the page with over five thousand followers to incite hateful and threatening comments to certain individuals who disagreed with his misinformed agendas surrounding mask-wearing during the Covid-19 pandemic, including Sam Hudson.
On several occasions, Flutey's posts spread Covid-19 misinformation alleging the pandemic is not real and furthermore proclaimed in live streams that lockdowns do not work — they are proven to work and prevent the virus from spreading in the community due to minimal movement.

Flutey posted to Telegram questioning why the page was unpublished undoubtedly with surprise and directed blame towards “marxist dweebs” for the removal.
“The Outspoken Facebook page has been unpublished. Why?,” he wrote. “They didn't say why the pages live videos have been subject to daily mob reporting from marxist dweebs and Facebook no longer gives you the option of appealing.”
Concluding with, “This may be the end of my page.”
In a video after the post, Flutey says the platform is supposedly going after anyone “that is going against the government” which is not true by all means.

Those who break the rules of a social media platform such as Facebook face the consequences. This is to protect wider communities online and offline from dangerous individuals such as Flutey.
He has used the word ‘nazi' a number of times including racial slurs to portray his message.
Facebook's Community Standards outline that they will take down or place limits on a page if they do not follow them. Some limitations can be imposed on a page if it posts content that may mislead people who follow it. Another reason for an unpublished status is if it goes against hate speech policies.
Admins can also manually unpublish a page at any time, which hides it from the public.
