Facebook Deletes Controversial Decapitation Videos

Marking a sharp turn from its earlier stance, Facebook has caved to pressure to remove two controversial decapitation videos that have gone viral on the social network over the past few weeks. In one of the videos, two handcuffed men speaking Spanish admit to being narcotics smugglers before being beheaded with a chainsaw and a knife. In another, a woman in a pink tanktop is decapitated by a masked man, who holds her severed head aloft for the camera to see. The videos appeared to have been deleted from Facebook on Thursday. “We have decided to remove instances of this video — and others like it, when they are reported to us,” Facebook spokesman Alison Schumer told The Huffington Post in an email. Schumer also said the company is still evaluating its policy on graphic content, which at the moment doesn’t cover whether NSFW posts that have news value should be allowed on or banned from the site.
