Antigone Davis, the head of Facebook’s global safety department, confirmed Oct. 20 that the company is throwing its support behind efforts to criminalize acts of revenge porn.

Davis told reporters that the social media company does “not tolerate revenge porn on Facebook, and we have reporting folks that do allow people to report and to take it down, and we do support the criminalization for people who post that non-consensual content.”

She cautiously stopped short of endorsing any specific legislation, saying that since she had not seen any specific bill, she “was loath to comment on the federal legislation,” according to The Hill.
