Lim Sun Sun on platform antagonism, disguising racist and nationalist views as dark humour on participatory media

(Updated: )

NMP Lim Sun Sun highlighted two concerns in the information infrastructure that have made hate speech an increasingly lethal threat. Speaking in Parliament on Monday (Apr 1), she said the first concern is platform antagonism. It refers to the use of fake identities on social media platforms to discredit particular ethnic, cultural or religious groups. The second concern is the practice of disguising racist and nationalist views as dark humour on participatory media.
