Facebook needs to get better at removing hate speech, COO says

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said that the social media giant has to ’get better’ at removing hate speech from its platform. Her statement came ahead of her scheduled meeting with civil rights leaders on Tuesday, who have pressured hundreds of brands to pull ads from Facebook, as they accused the social networking giant of being lenient on the ’hate and disinformation being spread’ on the platform

There is no such thing as a definition for hate speech. It does not exist. There is speech that is legal and speech that is not legal.

Free speech must be protected, it is impossible to define hate speech, I live in England and an old woman was arrested for not agreeing with transgender people on Twitter it’s disgraceful

You cannot destroy evil with evil because you become what you wish to destroy. If you attempt to tolerate everything but intolerance then you will become intolerant. There is no way to responsibly harness evil. In the words of Joaquin Phoenix in the movie 8mm: "When you dance with the devil, the devil doesn't change: You do." We can either tolerate everyone or we will tolerate no one.
