Meta Extends Ukrainian-Only Permission for Violent & Dehumanizing Speech to April 30
By sweN TR
Reuters has uncovered Meta’s lop-sided policy on moderating hate speech and calls to violence, after the platform reportedly extended exemptions for Ukrainians on violent and dehumanizing speech until May.
One Meta employee expressed frustration with the double standards after similar comments had been outlawed for conflicts in the Middle East, after writing on an internal message post.
“Seems this policy is saying hate speech and violence is ok if it is targeting the ‘right’ people.”
