Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has defended against employees of his decision, unlike Twitter against a controversial Statement by US President Donald Trump. The 36-Year-old turned himself in on Tuesday to questions from employees via video conference. He explains, among other things, that the threat of violence by governments, of the Facebook-is covered in the rules, reported the “New York Times” citing a transcript of the conversation.
In the controversy, it goes to a Tweet from Trump, which was also mirrored on the Facebook profile. The U.S. President responded to the first riot in Minneapolis after the death of the African-American George Floyd by police violence. The President wrote, you’ll create the control again, and added: “If the looting begin, will be shot” – “when the looting starts, the shooting starts”. The phrase is a historically prone quote. With these words in 1967, the then chief of police of Miami had announced a tough campaign against the black population.
Facebook employees resigned to Protest
Twitter sided Trumps Tweet with a warning, because it violates the prohibition of glorification of violence on the platform. Zuckerberg explained, however, as early as last week, the contribution was with Facebook’s rules, even when it is personally such a “gap end and an agitator rhetoric” strut to resist. “But my responsibility is not to respond personally, but as head of an Institution dedicated to the freedom of speech,” he wrote in a Facebook post.

The rules that Facebook had applied to the Trump contribution, ensured that the Video of Floyd’s death to stay on the platform, he told the technology website “The Verge” according to.

One of the questions was why so many smart people not squeezing in the case of Facebook, a eye, to piss off Trump. Previously, several of the managers had not publicly declared that they were with the course agree. At least one programmer quit in Protest.
