Facebook refused to remove a page entitled ‘Kill Zimmerman’ – arguing that it didn’t represent a “credible threat of violence,” as threats to murder George Zimmerman following his acquittal continue to flood Twitter.
According to Facebook, the ‘Kill Zimmerman’ page “doesn’t violate our community standard on credible threat of violence.” After media attention, Facebook appeared to remove the page but an identical clone popped up soon after and is still online.
Earlier this month, Facebook also refused to remove a Facebook page entitled “Riot For Trayvon” for the same reasons before being forced to do so after the story went viral.
Meanwhile, innumerable tweets from people threatening to kill George Zimmerman as well as others that advocate his murder continue to flood Twitter in unprecedented numbers.
The irony of threatening to carry out murder as a protest against the fact that someone was not convicted of murder was obviously not a factor when these threats were made.
