Mark Zuckerberg: act now to get hate ads off Facebook

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

Scram News has uncovered Islamophobia, hate and fake news being advertised on Facebook, despite the company’s claims that it’s cracking down on this content. [1]

As anti-racism group Hope Not Hate puts it: “It’s deeply irresponsible to allow this sort of content on any social platform, let alone make money off it through advertising.”

Facebook earns billions of dollars from advertising. It’s unacceptable that even a single cent of this includes profits from hate and fake news.

Sign the petition calling on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to come to the UK to answer questions from MPs and explain why Facebook isn't doing more to stop the spread of this appalling content.

Islamophobia, hate and misinformation are still being advertised on Facebook, despite your claims that the platform is cracking down on this content.

Facebook earns billions of dollars from advertising. It’s unacceptable that even a single cent of this includes profits from hate and fake news.

As one UK MP has put it: “The failure of social media companies to tackle extremism and fake news is having a corrosive effect on our democracy. Extremism is on the rise, as are hate crimes, and false information is fuelling hatred, division and ignorance."

Facebook has had enough chances to act: we now call on you to urgently appear before UK MPs to answer questions about the steps you’re taking to stop the spread of this appalling content.
