Report: Facebook bans leading white nationalist Faith Goldy
Facebook is banning Faith Goldy, a Canada-based far-right figure, as well as a number of hate groups, according to numerous reports.
HuffPost reports that Goldy is being banned from Facebook a week after it told the news outlet her videos did not violate its rules.
Goldy, a former mayoral candidate in Toronto, posted a video earlier this month where she lamented white “replacement,” according to HuffPost. Facebook, at the time, did not deem the video in violation of the rules.
The company announced last month that it would ban white nationalism on the platform, including content that supports it.
Meanwhile, as BuzzFeed News notes, several other groups that support white nationalism are also being banned, including Wolves of Odin and the Aryan Strikeforce.
“Individuals and organizations who spread hate, attack, or call for the exclusion of others on the basis of who they are have no place on Facebook,” a spokesperson for the social media giant told BuzzFeed News. “That’s why we have a policy on dangerous individuals and organizations, which states that we do not allow those who are engaged in offline ‘organized hate’ to have a presence on Facebook. The individuals and organizations we have banned today violate this policy, and they will no longer be allowed a presence on our services. Our work against organized hate is on-going and we will continue to review individuals, Pages, groups and content against our Community Standards.”
