On Thursday , Sacha Baron Cohen spoke at Never Is Now, the Anti-Defamation League’s summit on antisemitism and hate in New York, and denounced Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google as “the greatest propaganda machine in history” and culpable for a surge in “murderous attacks on religious and ethnic minorities.”

He focused especially on Facebook, saying that “if you pay them, the platform will run any ‘political’ ad you want, even if it’s a lie.” He said Facebook would have let Hitler buy ads for his “final solution to the Jewish problem.”
