Case Studies

Here at Elimihate we’ve done our research. To increase our own chance at success, we needed to find out what had been done in the past to curb online anti-semitic hate speech. So we thought we’d share with you a few case studies that really exemplify just how prevalent anti-semitic hate speech is and the struggle to get Facebook to accept accountability and remove the vilifying content.

Check out our case studies:

1) #Unbonjuif (A Good Jew): In 2012, the Twitter hashtag #Unbonjuif (“A Good Jew”) turned into a competition of anti-Semitic jokes with examples such as “A good Jew is a dead Jew”.
