William Shatner Kicked Out of Google+

Posted Jul 18, 2011

Wiliam Shatner’s Google+ account was flagged for “violating standards.” TechCrunch reports that while Google has yet to comment on the actor’s ban, Shatner himself tweeted about it. “My Google+ account was flagged for violating standards. Saying hello to everyone apparently is against the rules maybe I should say goodbye?”

The account was likely flagged because of other users assuming it was fake. Google+ does not yet have a function to verify the accounts of celebrities, so celebrities like Shatner will have to deal with cries of “impostor!” until Google fixes the issue.
