Zuckerberg Vows To Remove Hate Speech from Facebook

by | Aug 17, 2017

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is vowing to take down hate speech from his social media platform in light of the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va, over the weekend, reports The Hollywood Reporter, which added that in a statement “posted to his Facebook page, Zuckerberg committed to actively “keep working to make Facebook a place where everyone can feel safe.”

“”With the potential for more rallies, we’re watching the situation closely and will take down threats of physical harm,” he said.

“He acknowledged that a key component of social media is the ability for people to share their beliefs. However, he says, “When someone tries to silence others or attacks them based on who they are or what they believe, that hurts us all and is unacceptable.”

“Zuckerberg, who is Jewish, also said the last few days “have been hard to process” for him. “It’s a disgrace that we still need to say that neo-Nazis and white supremacists are wrong — as if this is somehow not obvious,” he said.”
