Facebook is an outlet where you can express your point of view, but actions of recent Donald Trump supporters has the social media giant cracking down.

Recently, supporters of the Republican presidential nominee have been adding "deplorable" to their profile names.

This comes after Hillary Clinton said half of trump supporters can be put in what she called a "basket of deplorables." Clinton has since apologized for the comment, but that has not stopped Trump supporters from embracing the moniker.

Facebook, however, is not allowing it. The site's terms of service requires users to use their real names on their profiles.

So, while this may be all fun and games for Trump supporters, they will be forced to make the profile change back to their real names.
