Facebook autofills Cliff Richard’s’ description on official profile to include the ‘police’
Sir Cliff Richard is mired by allegations of sex crimes. He’s not been arrsted. And he denies any wrongdoing. But the papers have got their teeth into him. The tabloids all lead with the perma-tanned singer. And on social media it’s worse.
On Facebook, Cliff is no longer a ‘singer’. No. He’s billed as a “singer under investigation by police”.
As Chris Applegate says:
So Facebook now autofills celebs’ descriptions on official profiles, which can lead to unfortunate juxtapositions.
Look out for Facebook behaving more like the Press and adding “Suspected racist” beneath all football fan’s names…
