ABC News reports:
Amazon Web Services has responded to Parler’s lawsuit against it with a series of screenshots of hateful content — loaded with threats of violence and racial slurs — that allegedly spread on the platform, in new court filings.
One screenshot of a Parler post features a slew of racial slurs about Michelle Obama and another states, “The only good democrat is a dead one.” Some of the posts in the court documents also show calls for violence, one user writing, “I do approve of actual violence towards Antifa and BLM” and “Kill’em ALL!”
In another post highlighted in AWS’s court filings, a user writes, “My wishes for a racewar [sic] have never been higher” and that they think about killing Black people and Jewish people “more and more often.”
