Today, the Oversight Board selected a case appealed by an Instagram user regarding a video in Swedish containing a woman’s discussion about the experiences men and women have of one another as well as hatred between genders. The woman in the video acknowledges her generalized hatred of men and refers to herself as a “man hater” and then discusses the difference between women’s hatred of men and men’s hatred of women.
Meta took down this content for violating our policy on Hate Speech, as laid out in our Instagram Community Guidelines and Facebook Community Standards. While we do allow users to share their experiences or call out intolerance, the content in this case did not fall within those allowances due to the identified expression of hate against a protected characteristic group.
We will implement the board’s decision once it has finished deliberating, and we will update this post accordingly. Please see the board’s website for the decision when they issue it.
