Faith Goldy has thousands of supporters and followers on her Social Media channels.
Hate Speech is a sensitive subject that remains a mystery, Goldy and many other journalists have been banned from the platform but the debate will forever remain controversial, private companies are allowed to define their own version of Hate Speech, if they make a mistake it will most likely haunt them in the future.
