: “Giving a platform to incite violence and spread disinformation is unacceptable, regardless who you are or if it’s newsworthy. I disagree with Mark’s position and will work to make change happen.”Jason Stirman, a member of the company’s R&D team and the former chief executive of the “mental training” app Lucid, also posted on Twitter,

saying: “I don’t know what to do, but I know doing nothing is not acceptable. I’m a FB employee that completely disagrees with Mark’s decision to do nothing about Trump’s recent posts, which clearly incite violence. I’m not alone inside of FB. There isn’t a neutral position on racism.”

On Friday Zuckerberg said he disagreed with Twitter’s interpretation of Trump’s statement, which included the phrase: “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Where Twitter had read the statement as incitement – encouraging police to shoot at protesters – Zuckerberg said he read it as a warning to protesters that the police would be shooting at them. The distinction meant that the post fell on the right side of Facebook’s rules, Zuckerberg said, and would not be removed.

“Personally, I have a visceral negative reaction to this kind of divisive and inflammatory rhetoric,” Zuckerberg added. “I disagree strongly with how the president spoke about this, but I believe people should be able to see this for themselves, because ultimately accountability for those in positions of power can only happen when their speech is scrutinised out in the open.”

Finally! Someone is showing Zuckerberg what having a spine means. It's the freedom of expression. If he bans trump now, where does it stop? Before you , people will start blocking a particular type or content leading to oppression and discrimination! wait for the apology... It’s because Zuckerberg is a complete Jeremy Hunt

Don't have Facebook and never will. He is a trumper. Boycott fb! Whose got who by the cojones? As a creator and owner one of the most used social networks worldwide, he must work for offering an excellent service and avoid to be manipulated by someone. If he was threatened, he can defend in the court and not to show preferences even if it is the government.

Mark Zuckerberg has allowed Putin and others to cause catastrophic harm. Zuckerberg is a dangerous combination of greed and arrogance. Way to make Zuckerberg look sympathetic. He looks like Peanut Allergy Eminem DeleteFacebook. How many more reasons do you need? 'The only thing we have to fear is Trump himself.'

He should like twitter Twitter Simple close Facebook accounts & move on to twitter. Its free speech. Let him allow people to have free speech. However, maybe a funding tag should be added to political Posts. Peace
