Facebook’s censoring of the popular sisters Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, known as Diamond and Silk, made headlines at this week’s testimony before Congress by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
He claimed his company committed an “enforcement error” when it censored the page of the hilarious Trump-loving duo, calling them “unsafe” for the community.
“In that specific case, our team made an enforcement error and we have already gotten in touch with them to reverse it,” Zuckerberg told lawmakers Wednesday.
But it’s more what Zuckerberg didn’t say that is of concern to those who believe the evidence shows a clear anti-conservative bias in his company’s attitude and actions.
For example, in an exchange with Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., Zuckerberg said Facebook is improving algorithms that can prevent hate speech from being posted.
However, he struggled to define hate speech.
“I think this is a really hard question,” he admitted.
