After the World Cup game between Sweden and Germany this Saturday, Swedish soccer player Jimmy Durmaz was exposed to a massive wave of race hate on social media. To make a statement against this abusive behaviour, the Swedish insurance agency Länsförsäkringar launched The Nasty Filter - a mobile keyboard function that turns hateful words into messages of love using autocorrect. Words like “terrorist pig,” “bearded animal,” “traitor,” “scum,” and “inbred” are now added to the filter - together with other hateful words that appeared in Durmaz instagram feed.
Länsförsäkringar is working preventatively to improve young people’s mental health online.
