I / my family member / a friend was hacked! How can I remove that hacked racist posting from your website?
Often racists claim they were hacked after their social media posts are publicized. Unfortunately, this may place a burden on those who *have* been hacked to prove they aren’t making that claim to have their racism swept under the rug.
To remedy this, please provide proof such as a police report, Facebook confirmation or email notification the password was immediately changed following the hack.
Note: a password change after a post goes viral is not considered sufficient proof of a hack.
Is it legal to post screenshots from people’s social media accounts?
It is not illegal to re-publish screenshots of posts or comments made to social media platforms. Anything published to the internet should be assumed to be public as you have no expectation of privacy on any social media platform. (The platforms’ terms of service state as much.)
For more information on this topic, please see read more here.
Can I submit something that isn’t a social media post but is still racist?
Our mission is specifically to document racism posted to social media platforms. Though you may be in possession of abhorrently racist material (ie: video, audio recordings), it is not currently within the scope of our primary mission.
I am being harassed and am receiving death threats!
Wypipo Cancelled has an explicit policy of non-harassment posted both to our website as well as on our social media channels. While we cannot control what individuals do or say on the internet at large, we moderate comments on all of our social media channels. That being said, we cannot be held responsible for people who see someone’s publicly posted social media words either on our website or in other places around the internet (as we typically receive submissions only after they have otherwise been posted throughout the internet). In those situations we’d recommend you reach out to the individual directly or to your local authorities to file a complaint against the individual.
The best policy in regards to making comments on the internet is not to say anything you wouldn’t want published on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.
I legitimately posted something racist and you published screenshots of it. How can I have it removed?
Great question! We’re in the process of developing a ‘restorative justice’ program to help folks remove their listing from our database.
At a minimum, you will need to admit to your racism, publish a public and comments-enabled post to the social media account you originally published the racist statements/images to, and allow members of the anti-racism community (such as our partners at WNR) to engage you in an honest, open dialogue about racial justice.
