The billionaire founder of Facebook has provoked fury by refusing to ban Holocaust denial from the social network. 

Mark Zuckerberg said he found claims that Nazi slaughter of Jews did not happen ‘deeply offensive’, he does not believe it should be totally forbidden from Facebook. 

Zuckerberg, who is Jewish, said he thinks there are things ‘that different people get wrong’. 

He added that he doesn’t think they are ‘intentionally’ getting it wrong. 

The remarks sparked criticism, including from the Anti-Defamation League, which said in a statement that Facebook has a “moral and ethical obligation” not to allow people to disseminate Holocaust denial on its platform.
