It created a lot of debate, as mersin escort the former member of parliament Martin Henriksen 9. July wrote a posting on Facebook, where he described an employed in the foreign office and, at the same time attached a picture of the employee.
Friday was the advertisement removed by Facebook, but Facebook's head of communications in the Nordic region, Camilla Nordsted, informs on Friday night to the news agency Ritzau that it was a mistake.
- Our guidelines intends to strike the right balance between, on the one hand to safeguard freedom of expression and, on the other hand to prevent hate speech.
- After further review, we assessed that the advertisement here was mistakenly taken down, and it is now back on the platform, " said Camilla Nordsted in a written response.
the Lookup is about Soma Mayel, who is a lawyer and employed in the foreign office.
She has both Danish and afghan citizenship, and therefore considers Martin Henriksen does not, she shall have the opportunity to take decisions on whether foreigners must obtain a residence permit in Denmark.
the ad provoked a lot of criticism, and among other foreigners, integration, Mattias Tesfaye (S) called the lookup for the 'full crazy'.
Martin Henriksen told the previous Friday that he considers it as censorship, that Facebook removed the post.
Facebook did, by the removal for the reason that the advertisement violates community rules on the hate rhetoric, it appears from the explanatory memorandum, which Martin Henriksen has shown to Ritzau.
But now the spread then back again.
Martin Henriksen acknowledges that Facebook admits an error. But he believes that the decision to remove the lookup in the first place speaks for itself.
About the progress he says:
- one assessment is that Facebook takes the ad down, because you do not like the political message in the advertisement. And I wonder if it is the correct assessment, I will allow myself to think.
- The second interpretation is that there is a fault. It says Facebook, which is, and commit to a mistake and admits it, then that is fair enough.
But I will not hide the fact that I have no doubt that when Facebook takes the ad down, and say that it is hate rhetoric, it is part of the way that Facebook operates. To censor opinions that are not politically correct, says Martin Henriksen.
recently Facebook, however, also received a lot of criticism for that the platform is not doing enough to remove the hateful and illegal content.
It has among other things been Coca-Cola, The North Face, and more than 160 other companies to drop advertising on Facebook in July.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has responded by promising changes.
social media will now do more to remove hateful content, he said in June.
