Matthew Steeples calls on Sir Nick Clegg to listen to the 36,500 people who’ve signed our Change.org petition seeking giraffe slayer Merelize van der Merwe being banned from Facebook
Once considered a “great communicator” but a bit of a poodle to his coalition government partner, David Cameron, Clegg was meant to turnaround Facebook’s reputation in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, but instead last week was branded: “Clegg, the pampered prince of PR” by The Times and “the Prince Harry of politics” by the Daily Mail.
Now, today, I have an idea for Sir Nick Clegg that could help reverse his bad fortune of late and that is to listen to the 36,500 people who’ve signed our Change.org petition seeking to ban Merelize van der Merwe, a wicked woman whose husband bought her the ‘opportunity’ to massacre a giraffe as a Valentine’s Day present, from posting her gruesome content on the pages of the social media organisation he works for.
That van der Merwe was even able to share graphic images and a video even of this ‘kill’ on Facebook is frankly outrageous and today I ask Sir Nick:
- Is publishing barbaric actions of this nature something that you think is acceptable on a site used by millions across the globe?
- Don’t you think it is time to ban this wicked wench and those like her from using Mark Zuckerberg’s medium for their personal pleasure and profit also?
Elsewhere on Change.org, 19,100 people have signed our petition seeking to ban the bear slaying barbarian Larysa Switlyk from Instagram, a company bought by Facebook in 2012 for £760 million ($1 billion). Perhaps Sir Nick, couldn’t you have a word there too?
