Snapchat locked Trump's account after a mob sieged the Capitol building in Washington
  • Snapchat locked president Donald Trump's account on Wednesday, during the violent insurrection at the US Capitol.
  • A pro-Trump mob broke into and occupied the Capitol building. Four people died as a result of the violence.
  • Snapchat had stopped promoting Trump's account in the app's Discover section starting in June 2020 due to his comments during anti-police brutality protests.
"We are not currently promoting the president's content on Snapchat's discover platform," a Snap spokesperson told Business Insider in June. "We will not amplify voices who incite racial violence and injustice by giving them free promotion on Discover. Racial violence and injustice have no place in our society and we stand together with all who seek peace, love, equality, and justice in America."
