The Incel United group, which supports misogyny and violence against women, boasts new members are joining each week.

It was allowed to appear on Facebook despite the tech giant repeatedly promising to crack down on hate speech.

Anti-hate campaigner Imran Ahmed said: “Enough is enough. If Big Tech keeps getting caught lying about radical hate on their platforms, then the Government should be stepping in with fines and potentially criminal charges if their failure to act leads to violent extremist attacks.”

In August, Davison shot five people dead including a young girl and his own mother, before turning the gun on himself.

The 22-year-old was a member of the Incel movement. which attracts young men who blame women for their struggles in forming relationships.

The Incel United group appeared the month after Davison’s rampage in Plymouth.

Mr Ahmed, of the Center for Countering Digital Hate, added: “Facebook claims it is sorting itself out but, in reality, the platform is still rife with hate.” 

Facebook said it was aware of the group and was investigating.
