Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg has another group pressuring his social media giant to do better at handling today’s concerns over racism, protests about it and the police response to those protests. A group of 143 scientists funded by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative or Chan Zuckerberg Biohub are calling for a stronger effort to stop misinformation and inflammatory posts on Facebook.

In a letter published Saturday, the researchers said Facebook has let President Donald Trump “spread both misinformation and incendiary statements on Facebook” and didn’t follow its own policies against inciting violence when it let stand a Trump post that said in part, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
