United States Representative for New York's 14th district Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed Facebook, Inc. and its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mark Zuckerberg bore "partial responsibility" for the riots that took place on January 6 in Washington DC.

"I think these events were largely organized on platforms that don't have our abilities to stop hate, and don’t have our standards and don't have our transparency," the congresswoman said.

Following the protests, Facebook banned President Donald Trump from its platforms over the risks Trump would try to "use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden."
