Facebook reverses Kyle Rittenhouse policy

James Clayton for BBC News:

“Searches for Kyle Rittenhouse resulted in a list of blank pages since shortly after the shooting in August 2020. Facebook said it would “still remove content that celebrates the death of the individuals killed in Kenosha”.

…but “we will no longer remove content containing praise or support of Rittenhouse”, a spokesperson said.

Mr Rittenhouse, 18, was cleared this month of two counts of homicide and one of attempted homicide.”

Oh, so glad to see the reversal, think of all the missed engagement and ad-serving opportunties gone to waste 🙄🤬
