Facebook Bans Louis Farrakhan, Others Over Hate Speech

FARRAKHAN

Facebook on Thursday banned black activist leader Louis Farrakhan, far-right icon Alex Jones and several others in a heightened crackdown on hate content at the leading social network.

“We’ve always banned individuals or organisations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” Facebook said in a statement.

“The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today,” Facebook said.
