Families of Pulse nightclub shooting victims sue Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube because they ‘helped radicalize the gunman’

Families and estates of more than a dozen victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre are suing Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube for allegedly contributing to the radicalization of the ISIS-inspired gunman.

The federal lawsuit was originally filed in Michigan last December by the estates of three victims, but it was amended last week to include ten more plaintiffs.

The complaint accuses the two social media sites, the video-sharing platform and the world’s most popular search engine of allowing ISIS to share content that allegedly inspired Omar Mateen.
