Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a recent interview that Holocaust-deniers should not be removed from his social platform if they are not “intentionally getting it wrong.”
“Let’s take this a little closer to home,” Zuckerberg said in an interview with Recode released on Wednesday. “So I’m Jewish, and there’s a set of people who deny that the Holocaust happened. I find that deeply offensive.”
“But at the end of the day, I don’t believe that our platform should take that down because I think there are things that different people get wrong — I don’t think that they’re intentionally getting it wrong,” Zuckerberg continued. “It’s hard to impugn intent and to understand the intent.”
“I just think as important as some of those examples are, I think the reality is also that I get things wrong when I speak publicly,” he said, further adding that he doesn’t think “that it is the right thing to say we are going to take someone off the platform if they get things wrong, even multiple times.”
