The telcos did this temporarily in respect of the family of the victims to stop the sharing of the disturbing video. Why give those that want to promote this behavior platforms for it. I support freedom of speech but that is not what this is about.

One of the posts on social media with many comments calling this blocking freedom of speech. How many actually read the article or just the misleading headline.
