Gov. Kathy Hochul on Tuesday called on social media outlets to remove hateful posts as the war between Israel-Hamas continues.
“Monitor the speech on your platform and crack down on incitements to violence – before it's too late,” Hochul said in a statement.
Hochul added once the war broke out, she immediately deployed New York State police to increase security measures to protect synagogues, yeshivas, cultural centers and other at-risk sites.
