Rohingya sue Facebook for $150bn over Myanmar hate speech

By Lauren Chalouhi

Many Rohingya refugees in the US and the UK have sued Facebook, accusing them of allowing hate speech against them to spread.

They are demanding more than $150 billion in compensation. They are claiming that Facebook’s platform is promoting violence against the persecuted minority.

Around 10,000 Rohingya Muslimes were killed during a military attack in Myanmar, in 2017.

Facebook, which is now called Meta, did not respond to the allegations immediately.
