Colombian social media star challenges censorship ruling
Are we allowed to share Christian views on social media? The Constitutional Court will have to answer this question, at least for Colombia.
Responding to a viewer’s question in an “Ask Me Anything” video, social media star Erika “Kika” Nieto had shared her views on marriage while expressing tolerance for all other views. After an activist complained about the clip, a national court denied her right to freedom of expression by ordering her to remove the video.
Nieto is now seeking to have the Colombian Constitutional Court uphold her right to freely share her opinions online.
