Facebook Blocks Woman For Hate Speech For Asking ‘Why Are Men So Dumb?’

 

Candace King ran across a Facebook meme showing two different shades of purple nail polish, implying that men couldn’t tell the difference between the two while women can. The Detroit woman left a comment on the meme, saying in part “Why are men so dumb;” she says her comment was deleted almost immediately and she was banned from Facebook for 24 hours.

Too harsh? King says it was just a mistake. She says the Facebook algorithm misinterpreted her comment as a violation of their policies against hate speech and automatically banned her. Facebook policies define hate speech as a direct attack against people rather than concepts or institutions based on protected characteristics…like gender.
