Facebook often struggles with controversial content moderation issues, either failing to explain its actions or not doing enough to remove offensive content. However, a new bombshell report could cast more doubt than ever on the social media giant’s processes. According to an anonymous whistleblower report from an individual claiming to be a Facebook employee, the company and its leaders have taken bribes to protect sexually explicit content from the OnlyFans platform.
According to the whistleblower report, Facebook executives allegedly began “favoring OnlyFans within the content moderation algorithms and not flagging it as outright pornography.” The report also said that this has been going on for “months if not years.”
“This a widespread problem and is occurring at both [Meta’s Europe, Middle East, and Africa office] and in the main Menlo Park office,” the whistleblower said. “Just look at the emails between OnlyFans people and FB employees and you’ll see the truth plain as day. I have seen copies.”
Of course, Facebook has vigorously denied these allegations, and questioned whether the whistleblower really works at the company. However, this is a serious accusation for a company whose fortunes are already rapidly plummeting, so Facebook may have to step up and be fully transparent about what really went on here.
