Back in 2018, Facebook, and especially Mark Zuckerburg created a quite a stir in an interview when we found out that Facebook wouldn’t ban Holocaust deniers from the platform.
but now, two years later, Zuckerburg has changed his tune. Now, the CEO announced a revision in its holocaust denial policy. This policy is going to remove, in its entirety, any comments from Facebook.
As explained by Zuckerberg:
“I’ve struggled with the tension between standing for free expression and the harm caused by minimizing or denying the horror of the Holocaust. My own thinking has evolved as I’ve seen data showing an increase in anti-Semitic violence, as have our wider policies on hate speech. Drawing the right lines between what is and isn’t acceptable speech isn’t straightforward, but with the current state of the world, I believe this is the right balance.”
