Facebook boycotted for hate speech

Al Jazeera’s adumbration comes just a week after more than 500 advertisers announcement they were boycotting Facebook for not responding abundantly to hate speech on its platform.

That didn’t seem to phase Mark Zuckerberg though. In an centralized Facebook meeting, the aggregation CEO said “my guess is that all these advertisers will be back on the belvedere soon enough.”

While boycotting companies accommodate some major names such as Coca-Cola, Microsoft, Starbucks, and Target, they are not the better spenders on the platform. Only three out of the top 25 ad spenders joined the boycott, which might explain Zuckerberg’s blowing response.

“We’re not gonna change our behavior or access on annihilation because of a threat to a small percent of our revenue, or to any percent of our revenue,” Zuckerberg said in the centralized meeting, according to The Information.

While COO Sheryl Sandberg says the company “stands firmly adjoin hate” and Facebook’s anti-hate speech measures are being improved, Zuckerberg’s comments beg the catechism as to how actively the aggregation takes the issue if it doesn’t affect its bottom line.

Pssst, hey you!
