Facebook's decision to leave up a post by President Trump threatening "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" in reference to the George Floyd protests is continuing to damage the company's reputation.




Civil rights leaders said CEO Mark Zuckerberg "refuses to acknowledge how Facebook is facilitating Trump's call for violence against protesters" after video conference call with him.




Meanwhile the CEO of a therapy app in talks to sign a partnership with Facebook said he was severing the deal on the basis he couldn't support a company that "incites violence, racism, and lies."

Facebook's stance on President Trump's violent rhetoric is under attack from outside and in.
The company is under continued fire over its decision to leave up a post by President Trump about the George Floyd protests in Minneapolis. In the post, Trump threatened to bring in the US Army and controversially states: "when the looting starts, the shooting starts."
While Twitter added a warning label to the tweet, Facebook's inertia resulted in employees publicly voicing their outrage and staging a virtual walkout.
