#GEORGEFLOYDCHALLENGE SHUT DOWN ON SOCIAL MEDIA
A disgraceful hashtag called #GeorgeFloydChallenge that was trending on social media has been shut down. According to TooFab, the trend saw a number of people posting photos of themselves mocking the death of George Floyd. Two teens started the trend in the UK and posted it to SnapChat. It was later posted on Facebook. A photo showed one teen kneeling on the neck of another, while they both laughed, along with the caption “police brutality”. According to The New York Post, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter quickly removed the hashtag. A spokesperson for Facebook said, "We are aware, and are removing these posts for violating our Community Standards." Meanwhile, according to the UK's Chronicle Live, two originators in the UK have been arrested for possible hate crimes.
