Facebook is reportedly planning to censor posts that may contain misinformation or “hate speech” related to the trial of Derek Chauvin as a verdict is expected in the near future. Facebook claims: “We want to strike the right balance between allowing people to speak about the trial and what the verdict means, while still doing our part to protect everyone’s safety.”

The New York Times reports that Facebook stated on Monday that it plans to limit posts that contain misinformation and “hate speech” related to the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with the murder of George Floyd, ahead of the trial’s verdict.

The article goes on to state the following:

Facebook stated that it would identify and remove posts that urge people to bring arms to the city and will also be protecting members of Floyd’s family from harassment and removing content that praised, celebrated, or mocked his death.

Facebook’s vice president of content policy, Monika Bickert, stated in a blog post regarding the issue: “We know this trial has been painful for many people. We want to strike the right balance between allowing people to speak about the trial and what the verdict means, while still doing our part to protect everyone’s safety.”

Bickert also stated in the post, “As the trial comes to a close, we will continue doing our part to help people safely connect and share what they are experiencing.”

News Anchor Jason DeRusha tweeted Monday, “Facebook declares Minneapolis a ‘high-risk location’ and will remove posts that call for arms to be brought here, or any post that ‘praises, celebrates or mocks George Floyd’s death.'”
