(Newstalk ZB) Facebook are refusing to remove a link to a video depicting a child’s suicide because it doesn’t violate their community standards.

Noted television personality and mental health awareness campaigner Mike King, who hosts the Nutters Club show on Newstalk ZB, came across the video via Facebook, which shows a twelve-year-old girl committing suicide.

King is outraged and concerned that other young children might find the link on Facebook, see the video, and consider suicide as a reasonable option.

Psychotherapist and fellow campaigner Kyle McDonald approached Facebook to take down the post, but says Facebook’s response is that, in their view, the link doesn’t violate its community standards.
