Like Ivana Alawi and Zeinab Harake’s respective Facebook pages, on October 4, Toni Fowler’s got deleted by Meta for no apparent reason.
Fowler’s page had over a million followers. No notification of sorts was sent to her before her page got deleted.
In her tweet, it’s already the fourth time that a page she created got taken down by Facebook without any warning.
“Kaya ako wala nakong Facebook page eh. Pang apat kong facebook page ganyan din nangyari. Ilang taon mo paghihirapan tapos walang notif ng kahit na anong report tapos biglang BOOM wala na,” she tweeted.

According to Xian Gaza, Harake confirmed to him that her page suddenly disappeared.
Alawi also said that her page got deleted without any notice from Meta.
“Hi guys. So tinanggal ng Facebook ang page ko. No violations, no update kung bakit nila tinanggal. Bigla na lang ilang ni-remove. Wala silang update sa akin. Sana maayos ito,” she said on Instagram.
“My 19 Million Verified page disappeared with No Warning, No Violation, No Report and no email. A few hours later, my business page for @ivanaskinph also disappeared. It’s not a bug… No reports, No reason. Why??” she added.
Before Harake’s message, Gaza said he thought Alawi intentionally unpublished her Facebook page to avoid paying the BIR taxes.
“Hindi naman sa may galit ako kay Ivana Alawi pero duda ko inunpublished niya yung kanyang page para makaiwas sa audit ng BIR tapos nag-e-emote at nagda-drama lang siya ngayon sa socmed para kunyare na-disable yung FB page niya. Feel ko lang,” Gaza wrote.
“Ang totoo niyan eh nauunawaan ko si Ivana, jusko kaysa kurakutin lang ng mga BIR officials ‘di ba? Ang ayaw ko lang eh yung may dramahan pa sa socmed at pinagmumukhang tanga yung mga tao.
“Also, these content creators with multimillion followers like Ivana Alawi ay mayroong direct contact sa Facebook management. Napakadaling ayusin ng mga bagay-bagay with just a single call. Kung totoo man na dinisable ang page niya, they will fix everything privately.
