I’m sure many of us have run across things on Facebook that might seem inappropriate. Could be that The Shade Room was targeted because of its success and the demographic it caters towards? A Facebook page with 4 million followers and just deleted without a heads up?
The Shade Room is a success and some other publishers might be a little jealous in all honesty. I do believe that race might have played a part on why it was deleted. The only thing I would tell the founder Angie Nwandu to make sure everything is done by the books way more than ever now.
