Facebook Bans Far-Right British Group

Facebook has banned the far-right political group ‘Britain First’ for breaking rules that prohibit hate speech on the social media platform. The organization’s official Facebook page has been removed, along with those of Britain First leaders Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen.  Facebook said they had “repeatedly posted content designed to incite animosity and hatred against minority groups”, CNN Money reported. “There are times ... when legitimate political speech crosses the line and becomes hate speech designed to stir up hatred against groups in our society,” Facebook said in a statement. Britain First gained international attention last year when US President Donald Trump re-tweeted three inflammatory videos posted by Fransen on Twitter, setting off a political firestorm that strained relations between London and Washington. The group’s accounts were later suspended by Twitter. Political leaders and big advertisers are increasing the pressure on social media companies to do more to remove objectionable and illegal material from their platforms.
