Limited moderation of anti-Semitism on Newshub

Tyrone Afolabi

This Facebook profile might be a part-time Nigerian Prince stirring up trouble on the Newshub Facebook page with his anti-Semitism but he stirred up quite a reaction from Kiwis.

Where was the Newshub moderation team?

Missing in action when it comes to anti-semitism I suggest.

The writer of the article was disgusted at the comments from Tyrone and others and revealed that the anti-semitic comments still showing were the ones that the moderation team had let through as even worse ones had been blocked!

Why didn’t the author of the article ask for them to be removed and why did the moderation team allow them to remain visible?

I guess at least he said something. Perhaps that is the spirit of the NZ HRC “give nothing to racism” campaign. Maybe he should be lauded for speaking up where the squash player Dame Susan Devoy couldn’t/wouldn’t. Maybe he could be considered for her replacement?
