  • Youtube, Facebook Remove Millions Of NZ Mosque Shooting Videos

    According to Gizmodo, Youtube scrambled this weekend to remove horrific videos of a gunman opening fire in two mosques in New Zealand. The alleged shooter is now in custody after he killed at least 51 people, while injuring many others. Prior to the shooting, the gunman had shared a 74-page hateful manifesto to social media, and during the shooting he captured first-person footage on a body cam. The footage immediately spread across the internet. Neal Mohan, YouTube’s chief product officer, told The Washington Post, “Every time a tragedy like this happens we learn something new, and in this case it was the unprecedented volume." He added, YouTube has “made progress, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a lot of work ahead of us, and this incident has shown that, especially in the case of more viral videos like this one, there’s more work to be done.” Facebook also said it removed 1.5 million videos of the attack within the first 24 hours.
