Facebook Group Calling For Obama's Death Reaches 1 Million Users


You’d think Facebook would be more proactive in monitoring their groups, however a new group which is calling for Obama’s death has surpassed 1 million users. Another group which calls on Facebook to delete the group, is also rapidly approaching 1 million users. While Facebook supports freedom of speech, calling on the death of an individual (let alone the President) definitely crosses the line. The group also happens to be filled with racist and generally hateful comment.

Facebook has a track record of letting questionable groups rise in number, however we believe that allowing this group to continue to grow is an oversight on Facebook’s part.
