#Delete_it – Dutch awareness campaign against online hate: ‘Do you really want me to translate’?

Filmmakers Issa Shaker and Anass Bendrif made a short film, #Delete_it, to create awareness about online hate messages.

This is horrible.”

The quotes are based upon real comments on social media, but some (like ‘go back to gas chambers’) were to horrible to show and the makers were afraid people would not believe those were real.
