‘Stop Lying’: Muslim Rights Group Sues Facebook Over Claims It Removes Hate Groups

The group Muslim Advocates on Thursday sued Facebook for allegedly making false statements about taking down hateful and violent content that violates its community guidelines.

The civil rights group says Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised Congress and the public the network would move fast to take down posts that break its rules, but anti-Muslim bigotry is still present.
