Hollywood producer Steven Spielberg was dismissed from Facebook after a video was circulated showing him making a racist joke.
The director was suspended last week following the video, which was uploaded to the social network’s news feed.
He had previously been suspended for posting a racist message about President Barack Obama’s appearance on stage during the US presidential election in November last year.
But the social media giant has now announced he will no longer be able to post to its platform, the world’s largest.
In a statement, Facebook said it had reviewed the video and found it “inappropriate”.
The statement read: “We believe it was inappropriate and in violation of our Community Guidelines, which prohibit content that promotes hate or violence against people or groups based on race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or any other characteristic that would violate our Community Standards or violate our policies.”
The company said that it has taken steps to ensure that Mr Spielberg’s posts will not be shared on Facebook again.
Mr Spielberg, who is also an Oscar-winning film director, has been outspoken about immigration and politics.
His Facebook posts have been condemned by immigration activists who say they are racist and anti-Muslim.
Last year, he tweeted a picture of an illegal alien from Mexico with the caption: “Trump is a fascist and he has no respect for human rights”.
In March, he said: “Donald Trump is a racist, bigoted bigot who wants to turn America into a Third World country.
I have no problem with people voting for him.””
I will vote for Donald Trump.
I have no problem with people voting for him.”
