Sacha Baron Cohen: ‘Facebook would have allowed Hitler to post ads’

The actor Sacha Baron Cohen has accused social media companies of spreading ‘hate, conspiracies and lies’ – claiming if Facebook had existed in the 1930s, it would have allowed Hitler to post Nazi propaganda ads. In a speech to the Anti Defamation League in New York – Cohen called for a fundamental rethink.

In response – Facebook said hate speech was banned on their platform – along with anyone advocating violence.
