The Facebook company took down this content for violating our policy on hate speech, as laid out in the Facebook Community Standards. We do not allow hate speech on Facebook because it creates an environment of intimidation and exclusion and, in some cases, may promote real-world violence.
On December 3, 2020, the board announced an update to this case. As a result of a person deleting content on Facebook, this case has been deleted from our platform and from the board’s systems, which means the board will no longer be able to view or issue a decision on this case.
There will be no further updates to this case.
