Facebook Pulls Down Trump Campaign's Ad With Nazi Symbolism for Hate-Speech Violations - 2020-06-18
The Trump ads in question blasted "Dangerous MOBS of far-left groups," which it claimed are "running through our streets and causing absolute mayhem." The ads featured an upside-down triangle, which anti-hate groups said was strikingly similar to notorious Nazi symbols denoting political prisoners in World War II concentration camps. Facebook's move to pull down the posts was first reported by the Washington Post.
"We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organized hate," a Facebook spokesperson confirmed to Variety. "Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group's symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol."
