Troy Montero expressed his dismay after the Facebook page he manages for Rocket, his daughter diagnosed with autism, was “unpublished” by the platform.
“I’m really sad today. Facebook PUBLISHED our Rocket’s Autism Awareness page, stating: “Rocket’s ASD Awareness page violates our community standards for account integrity and authentic identity,” Montero said via his Instagram page on Friday, September 22.
Montero speculates that the page, which has more than 100,000 followers, was taken down because of a report or “some AI thing.” He then appealed to the social media platform to respond to his queries to retrieve the page.
“I’m in tears about this,” he continued. “I run this FB page for my daughter who is on the autism spectrum. We share progress, stories and even exchange valuable information with other families with autism. Please bring our page back.”

Their social media followers then expressed their support for Montero, emphasizing that the story has been helpful to parents of children with autism.
Rocket is the youngest child of Montero and his wife, actress Aubrey Miles. The couple announced their daughter’s condition in April last year, saying they had chosen not to immediately share the information with the public as they were still educating themselves. /ra
