Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted Wednesday that his social media team made an “enforcement error” when they labeled pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk “unsafe,” adding that he plans on “reversing” the decision.
The tech titan was speaking before members of Congress when he was asked to comment on his platform’s designation of the conservative twosome as “unsafe to the community.”
“Why is Facebook censoring conservative bloggers, such as Diamond and Silk? Facebook called them ‘unsafe to the community.’ That is ludicrous. They hold conservative views, that isn’t unsafe. What’s your response to that?” asked one congressman.
“Mr. Congressman, in that specific case our team made an enforcement error. We’ve already gotten in touch with them to reverse it,” admitted Zuckerberg.
