Facebook Won’t Remove ‘Kill Zimmerman’ Page, Delays Blocking ‘Riot for Trayvon’ Account

Facebook

Facebook really seems to have a double standard when coming to this sort of thing.
Check it out:

The social media giant Facebook initially said it would not remove a page dubbed “RIOT for Trayvon” claiming it “doesn’t violate our community standard on credible threat of violence.” Later, the site apparently yanked the page but left another called “Kill Zimmerman” as is.

A Breitbart News contributor reached out to Facebook today asking the company to review “RIOT for Trayvon.” The page, which had 152 “likes,” included this paragraph (warning — explicit language):

They don’t think we will tear this mutha fucka up! LIKE IF YOU READY TO RIDE! LETS FLEX OUR MUSCLE! WHAT,YOU SCARED?

A picture accompanying the page featured a person lying unconscious. The social media company responded that it reviewed the page in question and did not feel the need to block it.
