  • Taylor Swift Calls Out Trump for Threatening Floyd George’s Protesters

A long-brewing storm in a social media teacup erupted last week when Twitter affixed the equivalent of a government health warning to three of U.S. president Donald Trump's tweets in as many days.

In response to Trump's chilling threat of violence, Taylor Swift posted a response on Twitter.

But Zuckerberg, who said he personally had a "visceral negative reaction" to the "divisive and inflammatory rhetoric" used in Trump's post, said that Facebook did not have a policy of "putting a warning in front of posts that may incite violence".

"We will stand with the family of George Floyd, with the peaceful protestors, and with every law-abiding citizen who wants decency, civility, safety and security", Trump added.

Mark Zuckerberg also pointed to a subsequent post that Trump made, in which the president said his looting and shooting phrase was "spoken as a fact, not as a statement" and that he didn't "want this to happen". This moment calls for unity and calmness, and we need empathy for the people and communities who are hurting. He said Trump's posts didn't violate the company's policies.

However, he added that he had to speak not for just himself, but for an "institution committed to free expression". Also the Facebook CEO said he had been "struggling all day" with how to respond because Twitter did take down Trump's post.
