In some spectacular news to wrap up 2020, Facebook has officially deleted Pete Evan‘s page for “repeated violation” of their policies.
Yes, friends, he’s shared neo-nazi content, spread conspiracy theories about vaccines and 5G and has shared many wild ideas about the coronavirus that are quite frankly unfounded and based in literally zero fact, and only now has Facebook decided to yeet Pete Evans off their platform for good.
And on the day before Christmas Eve? It’s a Christmas fucking miracle.
“We don’t allow anyone to share misinformation about COVID-19 that could lead to imminent physical harm or COVID-19 vaccines that have been debunked by public health experts,” said a spokesperson for Facebook.
“We have clear policies against this type of content and we’ve removed Chef Pete Evans’ Facebook Page for repeated violations of these policies.”
Any attempt to visit Pete Evans’ page will now end up in a ‘page not found’ result, which is truly iconic.

Pete Evans’ Instagram page is still active at the moment, which probably won’t last long given the fact that Facebook and Instagram are now sister companies under the same rules and regulations.
Just in case you somehow missed out on why this is happening, well, first of all, that’s a pretty impressive feat, and secondly, let me get you up to speed real quick.
Evans has been sharing conspiracy theories on the social media platform for quite some time now, but it wasn’t until he put up a neo-nazi meme, that people started to pull away from supporting him.
Publishers and brands started to split away from the chef en masse, resulting in a giant list of names that no longer want to be associated with the ex-household name.
This exodus of support included the team behind I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! who were slated to drop Evans straight into the jungle, but quickly found a replacement when shit hit the fan.
And that’s basically everything so far. This Facebook deletion is just the cherry on top of a wild, wild cake.
Truly, there is no better way to sign off 2020 than this.
