Australian Prime Minister Calls For Ban On Memes

Apr 26, 2024 | Political News

The Australian Prime Minister appeared to call for a ban on memes on social media Wednesday, as his government continues a full on assault on freedom of speech online.

During a press appearance, Anthony Albanese seemed to lump in memes making fun of him with “misinformation” he is claiming should be purged from the internet.

“Social media platforms have a responsibility to make sure that misinformation isn’t got out there,” Albanese stated. 

He continued, “I noticed today, for example, on the way up here, they’ve removed various sites that were up containing fake images of myself superimposed on other people.”
