Alleged Hate Speech: “Rant HQ” Faces Shutdown As Igbo Members Revolt.
Popular interactive Facebook group RANT HQ today faced devastating attack from its members of Igbo extraction. This is because of what they termed “Hate Speech” attached to a derogatory anti-tribal post made by its founder SUZAN ADE COKER.
The post dated May 15 2020 caused uncontrollable outrage within the Igbos in the group and beyond, leading to majority of them calling for mass action. This led to many of them “reporting” the group to have gone against community standards.
Later in the day, Facebook temporarily shut the group down, even though services were later restored. It is not yet clear whether Facebook is done with reviewing the group practices to take the final action.
