Recently there has been a lot of debate going on towards whether Facebook should change its policies towards freedom of speech, hate speech and regulation of media. While the internet giant refuses to budge and give any sort of leeway by stating that it would completely change their scape.
However, PlayStation has taken a keen step towards the better cause by completely suspending all activities on their platforms. Both paid and unpaid advertisements, as a result, would come to a halt as reported. In support of the #StopHateForProfit campaign folks over at PlayStation have suspended the activity till the end of July with ambitions to change the way modern people think.

If they really do care about freedom then they should rather opt for a more direct and open approach like Reddit.
