The social network that is home to 500 million users addresses Willow’s use of the words ‘f**got’ and calling someone ‘gay’ while defending her mother!
Facebook is finally responding to Willow Palin‘s homophobic slurs on Nov. 14 when she called another user “gay” and a “f**got” while defending her family’s new show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska! In a letter to HollywoodLife a Facebook spokesperson said, “We want Facebook to be a place where people can openly discuss issues and express their views, while respecting the rights and feelings of others.”
They went on to note, “Facebook is highly self-regulating, and people can and do report content that they find questionable or offensive. We take our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities very seriously and react quickly to reports of content and behavior that violate our policies. Specifically, we’re sensitive to content that singles out private individuals, or that includes pornography, direct statements of hate, or actionable threats of violence.”
This makes it clear Willow’s actions, however ill advised, will not be landing the 16-year-old in any sort of serious trouble. We are sure mom Sarah Palin is very relieved to hear that!
