A racial justice group got death threats.
t wasn’t until the New York Times published its blockbuster report that detailed the inner workings of an alleged smear campaign to deflect criticism of Facebook from progressive activists that the string of unfamiliar threats added up.
Yet another example of Facebook not caring about consequences to anyone other than themselves.
What do you think can happen if you start a smear campaign against someone? Facebook, at this point, knows that threats and violence are quite likely. They've accelerated genocide in Myanmar and promoted right-wing violence in India and Germany. No, they do not give a fuck about that, either.
Like all social media corporations, they care about growing monthly active user counts and getting ads in front of them. The users do not have to be happy, and the ads can be lies; it will increase their valuation either way.
