At the annual SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, on Monday, London Mayor Sadiq Khan made a moving plea for tech companies to take on hate speech. During his talk, the mayor read racist tweets about himself.
Khan read aloud, "I say kill the mayor of London and you'll be rid of one Muslim terrorist. I'd pay for someone to execute Sadiq Kahn."
