New Delhi: Amidst some controversies and despite signing a pledge to remove “hate speech” within 24 hours, social networking giant Facebook has refused to delete the page “I Want to F**king Kill Donald Trump”.
This page has been online for almost couple of months and despite Facebook's joining hands with Twitter, YouTube, Microsoft and the European Union to stop “racist, violent and illegal content”, it has not adhered to the promise.
As per a report published in infowars.com, the company has also vowed to promote “independent counter-narratives” that encourage “non-discrimination, tolerance and respect.”
Despite being flagged by Facebook users on multiple occasions, a “cause” page entitled “I Want to F**king Kill Donald Trump” remains active over seven weeks after it was created.
The profile picture for the page features an image of Trump in make-up with a newspaper headline that reads “Dead Clown Walking”.
The most recent post on the page shows an image of Trump as a corpse and is captioned, “What is your weapon of choice?” above an image of a knuckle duster, a brick and a golf club.
