Alex Banks has 88,000 influential followers on his Facebook account. Alex Banks is telling these followers, mostly whom are impressionable young teenagers, to kill themselves if they're not a certain way. The reason why this pathetic person hasn't yet been removed from Facebook is because he doesn't ever post any of the statuses, he screenshots them and adds them as photos. Telling a person that they should 'slit their wrists' and kill themselves because they're not 'under 90 lbs' or 'you have brown eyes or brown hair' is simply hypocritical and is simply wrong in today's society with young people stressing over the way they look. This young man should not be influencing so many people in such negative ways. Not only does he attack your everyday citizen, but also famous celebrities such as Demi Lovato and Facebook famous, Stephen Parker. He tells cancer suffers that they 'seek attention', 'that 'God doesn't love them ' and that they're 'ugly worthless scum'. Whether he's simply doing this to get attention or not, no one can tell someone they should be or look a certain way. Everyone is beautiful and perfect in their own way. Nobody can tell someone to kill themselves or hurt themselves and not suffer the consequences.Facebook community standards clearly state that "Facebook does not permit hate speech, but distinguishes between serious and humorous speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, we do not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition." Alex Banks has clearly broken these standards by offending all of the above. Though I believe people have the right to the freedom of speech, a line must be drawn when he is telliing a certain group of people to kill themselves. We must remove this troll from Facebook.
