ADL: Holocaust denial remains prevalent on Facebook despite ban

The Anti-Defamation League says that, a year after Facebook banned Holocaust denial from the platform, there remain “cracks in enforcement” that allow deniers to disseminate hate speech.

While Facebook has banned certain search terms related to Holocaust denial, others remain available, bringing up video and pages.

“There’s still a lot of Holocaust denial on Facebook,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt says. “We urge the platform to take additional steps to address these cracks in enforcement as well as to ensure that the ban is more consistently applied across the platform.”
