“What a sad day this is for the poor LGBT Community. All over a few words that have been made even more powerful and evil by those that seek to erase them! If this is what you are going to do with your rights then you don’t deserve to even have them!”
When I reached out to Facebook for comment, they said that someone within County’s Facebook community had reported her status for “containing slurs,” and her account had been temporarily suspended for a 24-hour period. (It’s currently back up.) This is an across-the-board policy.
Facebook says that if they receive a report for a violation of their hate speech policy, they remove the hate speech and don’t spend time “interpreting what people mean.”
Facebook doesn’t have a specific list of terms people get banned for, with over a billion users, they rely on fellow users to report when violations have been made.
