Families of Pulse nightclub shooting victims sue Facebook, Google and Twitter
Three families of victims killed in the Pulse nightclub shooting have filed a lawsuit against Facebook, Twitter and Google.
The lawsuit alleges the tech giants helped radicalize the Pulse nightclub gunman that opened fire at the Orlando nightclub, killing 49 people in June.
The suit claims all three companies “knowingly and recklessly” let accounts associated with ISIS exist. It claims those accounts therefore allowed the terrorist group to use the social networks “as a tool for spreading extremist propaganda, raising funds, and attracting new recruits.”
