Seth Rogen blasts Twitter CEO for verifying white supremacists

Seth Rogen says he’s been directly in touch with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey about verifying “white supremacists” on the social platform — and the actor-comedian now is ripping into the tech exec.

Rogen, in a tweet Tuesday, wrote: “I’ve been DMing with @jack about his bizarre need to verify white supremacists on his platform for the last 8 months or so, and after all the exchanges, I’ve reached a conclusion: the dude simply does not seem to give a f-ck.”

Twitter reps did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Dorsey had not responded to Rogen’s tweet as of press time.

Hate speech has been one of the issues threatening Twitter’s growth, and Dorsey has routinely pledged to make “safety” a No. 1 priority at Twitter and to measure the “health” of conversations on the platform.

Last December, Twitter banned a number of accounts associated with far-right extremists, including at least one that has been retweeted by President Trump, as part of instituting new rules against hate and harassment.

Some of the accounts banned in late 2017 included the Traditionalist Worker Party, a group of white supremacists known for its anti-semitism, the pro-confederate League of the South, as well as the American Nazi Party. Twitter also banned accounts from individuals associated with these groups, as well as far-right extremists from the U.K., including the anti-immigrant group Britain First.
