Facebook: Beheading Video ‘Doesn’t Violate’ Standards For Graphic Violence



” On Monday, Facebook responded to a report of a grisly beheading video, saying it does not violate the social media site’s policy regarding graphic violence.

“We reviewed the video you reported, but found it doesn’t violate Facebook’s Community Standard on graphic violence, which includes depicting harm to someone or something, threats to the public’s safety, or theft and vandalism,” Facebook said.

The video, which was removed from the page that was originally reported, has been spotted on other timelines and clearly shows a woman being decapitated, allegedly for cheating on her husband.

A post by Celia Mellow at GoPetition said that Facebook gave her the same response to the video. Shocked at the video, she started a petition demanding it be pulled.”
