Trump Muslim Registry: Facebook Accidentally Comments On Policy, Later Promises Not To Participate If Asked

International Business Times

Facebook accidentally revealed its position on the possibility its service would be tapped to help create a registry of Muslim Americans when a spokesperson called the notion of such a thing a "strawman" in an email intended for internal communications that was sent to a BuzzFeed News reporter. The comment came in response to an inquiry to the social network asking if it would commit to limiting data collection that could be put to use for ethnic or religious targeting. The company was also asked if it would pledge not to participate in building a registry of Muslims if asked to do so by the government. A message from a Facebook public relations representative, intended to be forwarded to other Facebook employees, was sent to BuzzFeed's Nitasha Tiku. The message concluded it was best for Facebook to stay off the record regarding the issue, but noted they were "happy to talk to her off record about why this is attacking a straw man."

But before anyone could count their blessings that the Amazon gods or a kind soul were gifting them some free stuff, the message was promptly ruined by a baby wearing a diaper. SEE ALSO: Amazon's out of the original Amazon Echo right now, and they won't say why "Hello Amazon Customer," the email reads. "Someone great recently purchased a gift from your baby registry!"
