Some Facebook employees staged a virtual walk out on Monday protesting CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s decision to not take action against US President Donald Trump’s posts. The employees expressed their frustration at the CEO’s alleged inaction, especially since rival platforms like Twitter have been more forthcoming about flagging President Trump’s speech.

There was an uproar after President Trump called the protestors “Thugs” and warned about strict action against them. While Twitter was swift in its approach to flag the President’s post, Facebook didn’t showcase the same alacrity. Zuckerberg defended Facebook’s stance, saying, “Our position is that we should enable as much expression as possible unless it will cause imminent risk of specific harms or dangers spelled out in clear policies.”
