The social media platform Twitter is facing pressure to take a hard stance against the anti-Semitic abuse of the hashtag Journey Kidz, after the hashtag was used to spread racist, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim memes.
The #JourneyKidz hashtag is a trending topic on Twitter, which has long been one of the most popular social media platforms for spreading hate.
Twitter has also been accused of facilitating the spreading of racist, hate-filled memes that spread anti-Semitism, according to a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
The #JournoKidz Twitter account has since been deleted, but the account’s creators remain.
“We take the issue of racism very seriously and we have taken steps to prevent abuse on Twitter,” Twitter said in a statement Tuesday.
“As an open platform, we’re committed to making sure our communities are safe from hate speech and hate groups.”
The #journokidz Twitter hashtag is trending on Twitter.
The SPLC report found that in October 2017, at least 19 people were killed by white supremacists on the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia.
In April 2018, at a rally in Charlottesville, the hashtag #JKILLER was tweeted to celebrate the killing of Robert E. Lee.
The tweet was also used to post racist and anti and anti Muslim memes.
Twitter also removed the hashtag from its account and blocked the account of the man behind it, @JournotKiller, but has not taken action against the account owner, who has since deleted his account.
The @JKKillER account on Twitter has since disappeared.
Twitter has also had to defend itself against the racist meme known as the “Journos Journey,” which was created by a white nationalist group in response to the deaths of black people.
The account has been banned from the platform and has since appeared on other sites.
Twitter users have also been calling for Twitter to stop allowing “journos” to be promoted on its platform.
A Twitter spokesperson told The Huffington Post in an email that the company has no plans to remove or block any account for inciting violence against anyone.
“If an account promotes violence against others, we take action to remove it from the service, which can take hours or days,” the spokesperson wrote.
“In this instance, the account has not been removed and has not promoted violence against people.”
