Netanyahu denies writing message that caused Facebook to sanction his page’s chatbot over hate speech

By James Rogers | Fox News | September 12, 2019:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has denied writing a message that caused Facebook to sanction a Messenger bot on his page for a violation of its hate speech policy.

Facebook said on Thursday that the tech giant had suspended for 24 hours the page’s bot or automated chat function.

The message had called on voters to prevent the establishment of a government composed of “Arabs who want to destroy us all — women, children and men.” The message sparked uproar by opposition politicians in Israel.

“Think rationally. I am a serious person,” he told interviewers, according to a Haaretz report. “I have friends in Arab countries. What is this nonsense?”

Haaretz reports that Facebook users who accessed the chatbot content were urged to convince undecided voters to vote for Netanyahu’s Likud party. Israel’s national election takes place on Sept. 17.

Facebook noted that it had sanctioned the Messenger bot, not the page. “After careful review of the Likud campaign’s bot activities, we found a violation of our hate speech policy,” the social network explained, in a statement emailed to Fox News. “We also found that the bot was misusing the platform in the time period allowed to contact people. As a result, we temporarily suspended the bot for 24 hours. Should there be any additional violations, we will continue to take appropriate action.”
