Mark Zuckerberg's Holocaust comment puts Facebook on the spot
Updated : July 19, 2018 11:52 PM IST
Zuckerberg, who is Jewish, said in an interview with Recode that Facebook posts denying the Holocaust took place would not be removed automatically.
The Anti-Defamation League said that Facebook has a "moral and ethical obligation" not to allow people to disseminate Holocaust denial on its platform.
"I personally find Holocaust denial deeply offensive, and I absolutely didn't intend to defend the intent of people who deny that," Zuckerberg wrote in the email, which was published by Recode.
