Hate Speech

Facebook software engineer Ashok Chandwaney has publicly quit, accusing the company of violating its core values and of "profiting off hate."
"Knock the crap out of 'em" is not the motto of a peace-loving president.
The TV host responded to the backlash by saying he did not condone "hate speech nor the spread of hateful rhetoric" and said he wanted to "be corrected."
Leaders behind the Stop Hate for Profit movement say the Facebook CEO offered "no changes, no timeline, no response to our specific requests."
Social media platforms have issued bans and takedowns as they face mounting pressure. But how much has really changed?
A movement to pull ads from the social media platform has grown to 270 companies, including some prominent household names.
Their YouTube channels and several others were terminated for violating policies prohibiting hate speech.
The Amazon-owned livestreaming platform said two recent streams on the president's channel prompted the suspension.
The site also took down the left-wing subreddit r/ChapoTrapHouse. "All communities on Reddit must abide by our content policy in good faith," Reddit's CEO said.
A growing movement has brands reevaluating their relationship with the social media platform.
