When Freedom of Speech and Social Media Collide
Posted on: Wed 6 Jun 2018
Last week we saw the latest social media based sacking of a high-profile personality.
Roseanne Barr was dismissed and her high rating sitcom cancelled following her tweet which compared African-American woman, Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to President Obama, to an ape.
Roseanne’s dismissal has also sparked debate about whether free speech is being impinged upon.
