Source: Facebook Commits To Removing Hateful Comments About Lizzo


Friendly reminder: be nice on the internet. Someday, there might be repercussions.

Obviously, today is not that day. Hatred of all kinds runs rampant on the web, and there’s no worse situation than Facebook.

TMZ is reporting that the social media giant will be taking a stand on at least one trend, as an anonymous source (supposedly representing FB) told the tabloids they’ll be deleting rude comments about Lizzo.

Per the unnamed sources, TMZ reports that Mark Zuckerberg’s site has already taken down “a number of comments” disparaging Lizzo’s appearance and music. Facebook says that they remove accounts that continually break the rules again inappropriate behavior – of course, we all know that’s not true, so don’t get too excited.

Hopefully this time, they really do take action. While we’re stopping people from bullying Lizzo, maybe Facebook could even take a look at some of the bigger issues on their site…
