After the horrific shooting that took place in Buffalo, Governor Kathy Hochul flew in to address the community and to call out CEOs of social media platforms for not doing more to monitor violent and racist content.
Governor Hochul stated: “We don’t know if there are other people who are now going to be inspired, which is exactly what this cruel depraved person intended if you read the manifesto, he intended to make sure that other people would see it would happen in real-time here so they would consider other acts as well… want them to sit in the room, look me in the eye and tell me to have you done everything humanly possible to make sure that you’re monitoring this content the second it hits your platform. If you’re not then I’m going to hold you responsible. So, prove to me that there is nothing else that can be done.”
