So the question is, why, a year after Zuckerberg touted AI moderation tech, did Instagram, and its parent company Facebook, reportedly take most of a day to remove the Devins post? A post that has terrorized, traumatized, and enraged the victim’s family? A post that could not more obviously violate Facebook and Instagram’s community guidelines? On Facebook, the fact that posts depicting ‘Violence and Incitement’ will be banned is the subject of the very first part of the very first section of its guidelines—a lengthy, 22-point document. Instagram’s community guidelines similarly state, “Sharing graphic images for sadistic pleasure or to glorify violence is never allowed.”

How a Horrific Murder Exposes the Great Failure of Facebook's AI Moderation
When 21-year-old Brandon Andrew Clark posted a series of graphic images on Sunday of the slain corpse of 17-year-old Bianca Devins to Instagram and Discord, users immediately began spreading the gory pictures online, often alongside brutal, misogynist commentary. Some said the victim, an ‘e-girl’ who was popular on 4Chan, deserved it, and others called for even more violence against women. Clark, who appears to have live-posted the murder itself on Instagram—a series of posts reportedly showed the body, the road near the crime scene, and an act of bloody self-harm—took the time to change his bio to hint at his forthcoming suicide attempt, and to attempt to craft a multi-platform narrative around the killing as it unfolded.
