Update: As of 12.30am PST on May 11, the groups are redirecting users to the homepage, suggesting theyâ€™ve been deleted.
Attorney Brian Cuban, brother to Dallas Mavericks owner and entrepreneur Mark Cuban, has published an open letter to Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg demanding the removal of Holocaust Denial groups from the site.
Brian has been asking Facebook to remove the groups since last year without success. He makes legitimate points, and even discounting the strong emotional reaction many of us have to Holocaust Denial, Cubanâ€™s argument appears rational and without fault. Facebook will likely need to post a public response and even change its position.
The groups in question include â€œHolocaust: A Series of Lies,â€ and â€œHolocaust is a Holohoaxâ€, but Facebookâ€™s current position is that they will only block access to the groups from countries (such as Germany) where Holocaust Denial is illegal – they will not be removed in the US.
