Facebook refuses to take down sick meme mocking Manchester bombing as it ‘doesn’t violate its standards’

Facebook is refusing to remove vile and upsetting memes which mock the 22 victims of the Manchester bombing despite pleas from its users because “it doesn’t violate our community standards”.

A probe by The Sun Online into Facebook groups which revel in the tragedy and taunt those affected by it exposed how the social media giant is failing to clamp down on trolls. And now more users are coming forward to shame Facebook for failing to act.

A Sun reader who asked to remain anonymous shared a meme with us that they flagged to moderators through the social network’s “report it” system, which was then reviewed by staff at Facebook.
