  • Mark Zuckerberg's sister defends his comments on Holocaust deniers

He said he thinks that there are things "that different people get wrong, ' and that he does not think they are 'intentionally" getting it wrong. "But silencing everyone - or worse, silencing selectively - would be far more nefarious".

'Organizations doing impactful work now have more powerful tools than ever before, yet the nasty dark underbelly that exists right beneath the surface has access to those exact same tools.

In statement provided to CNN late Thursday evening, Zuckerberg' sister, Randi Zuckerberg, said that she had a duty to weigh in as a leader of the Jewish community and someone who has "worked at the ground floor of social media".

"I don't believe that our platform should take that down because I think there are things that different people get wrong", he said.

"While it can be appalling to see what some people say, I don't think living in a sterile, Stepford-like online community where we simply press the delete button on the ugly reality of how people feel is helpful either", she added.

"As much as I disagree with Holocaust deniers having a voice at all, the reality is that it is not now considered a crime in the United States, and if we want our social networks to remove this hateful speech and follow the lead of many countries in Europe who denounce it as criminal, we need to expand the conversation more broadly and legislate at a national level", she wrote.

Following Mark's comments, the Anti-Defamation League said that Facebook has a "moral and ethical obligation" not to allow people to disseminate Holocaust denial on its platform. Zuckerberg, who is Jewish, told the interviewer that he did not want to delete even something as deeply and personally offensive to him as Holocaust denial.

The company's new policy will begin in Sri Lanka and later expand to Burma. And of course if a post crossed line into advocating for violence or hate against a particular group, it would be removed.

In April, Facebook announced new public guidelines mirroring the rules its reviewers use to decide whether posts run foul of prohibitions against harassment, violent threats, explicit sexuality and other forbidden categories.

Facebook had previously shied away from providing this level of detail about its "community guidelines".

Zuckerberg responded by saying that "it's hard to impugn intent and to understand the intent".

In the initial 90-minute podcast interview Tuesday, Zuckerberg spoke with Recode's Kara Swisher on several topics, including privacy, news and how he believes that controversial and false content published on Facebook has attracted criticism.
