Facebook says: It’s ok to make fun of people with Down’s Syndrome.

I saw this on Facebook today.

Am I the only one offended by it?

Tag someone who is super special

“Tag someone who is super special”

 

I didn’t look at every person who was tagged, but the ones I did did not appear to have Down’s Syndrome.

I reported it to Facebook as “hate speech”, but I must have been wrong because they “carefully reviewed the photo you reported, but found it doesn’t violate our community standard on hate speech so we didn’t remove it.”

  1. Yeah, I saw that too because people I am friends with had been tagged in it and I thought exactly the same, it really is not appropriate and is really disrespectful and rude. Facebook won’t do anything :/
