Facebook Live Used To Auction Child Bride (16) In Sudan

||| Test Aankoop Belgium|||

500 cows, three luxury cars and $10,000. That is how much a wealthy businessman in Sudan paid for a 16-year-old child bride auctioned on Facebook. Rumors on social media say the traders used Facebook live to conduct the auction with multiple bidders. For anyone that has seen the movie Taken (the first one) with Liam Neeson and believes that the (attention spoiler) girl auction at the end is fiction, think again.

These things do happen both in the Middle East and Africa, and slave traders are using Silicon Valley’s platforms to sell their services, which is much easier than having to invite your clients to travel halfway around the world of course.

NGOs point out that about half of Sudanese girls are married before they hit 18 and thus the auction was not that surprising. They did admit being surprised at Facebook allowing this to take place, as the invites were sent out several days before the actual event happened.

Pictures of the girl in a white wedding gown were shared on various social media sites. Some reports referred to her as a “virgin bride” or “the most expensive woman in South Sudan”.

“That a girl could be sold for marriage on the world’s biggest social networking site … is beyond belief,” said Mr George Otim, country director of Plan International South Sudan.

Human rights activists fear that the successful auction means that slave traders in more African countries will resort to Facebook or other platforms to offer their businesses.

As the Goldwater regularly posts their articles on Gab, allow us to make this side note: given that the mass shooter in California last week posted on Instagram during his killing spree and Facebook continues to be used for inhumane purposes like ISIS videos or child bride auctions, we assume they will face the same ban as Gab did?

OK Ladies and Fembots.

What say you.?

Super Super Rich Business just supported the selling of a female minor to a Rich adult.

Is it OK because Facebook is LIBERAL run and donates $$$$$$$$$$$ to liberal causes and suppresses Conservatives exchanged FACTS?

Or is it OK because the Muslims who did this Hate America therefore Liberal support them and call them the religion of Peace?
