On Tuesday, Facebook decided to block a video advertisement, stating that the ad violated their guidelines around sexual content. However, the ad was merely for a collection of artwork to be auctioned off and the "sexual content" was actually a piece of artwork. Mossgreen , the auction house in Australia who's behind the ad, has spoken out against Facebook's ban. Mossgreen's chief executive, Paul Summer, told The Guardian , "I can't quite believe it, to be honest. I feel I'm not living in the 21st century. It's like Facebook are living in the 1950s."

Monopoly fixed-phone operator Ukrtelecom has switched off part of its network in Donetsk Oblast after Russian-backed forces seized control of the company’s Donetsk office, the company said on March 1. The operator, owned by Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov, said it had cut the area off from the national network because it had lost centralized control over the occupied Ukrainian territories in Donetsk Oblast. Internet and telephone services for almost 200,000 people were shut off. “Staffers arrived at work to find people in masks and uniforms there,” Ukrtelecom spokesperson Mikhail Shuranov told the Kyiv Post. “The (masked people) asked to see (the staffers’) documents, started questioning them, and then forced them to leave the premises.” Ukrtelecom’s Donetsk office, which has around 900 employees, continued working even after the Russian-backed forces occupation of these territories, because “we had no other orders from the (regulator), the Ukrainian State Centre of Radio Frequencies (UCRF),” Shuranov said.

On Sunday night, many viewers were outraged , arguing that his Oscar trophy condoned his alleged misbehavior and sexism in Hollywood. The 41-year-old Affleck, who is the younger brother of actor Ben, discussed the allegations a few times during awards season. In an interview with the Boston Globe published Tuesday, he said: Theres really nothing I can do about it, other than live my life the way I know I live it and to speak to what my own values are and how I try to live by them all the time.

Rosie O'Donnell, a liberal comedian and longtime foe of President Trump, went on a rant against Trump on Tuesday night outside the White House just a couple hours before his address to a joint session of Congress. O'Donnell opened her speech by quoting the beginning of the Declaration of Independence, declaring that she wanted to "institute new government" because of her perceived oppression from the Trump administration. "This is not Russia," O'Donnell said, taking a jab at the alleged contact between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence. O'Donnell then took a jab at the mainstream media, insisting that if they don't do their job in holding Trump accountable, then she and other activists will. "The internet rules! All media is universal! The truth matters even if our major media companies will not call him a liar. We will. He lies. He lies.
