From Institute for Free Speech:

“Aside from legislation like this making social media websites completely unusable, they’re blatantly unconstitutional under the First Amendment,” Shoshana Weissmann, a fellow at the R Street Institute in Washington, D.C., told The Missouri Times. “Just as there is no ‘hate speech’ exception to the First Amendment, which applies to government actions, the government also cannot mandate ‘hate speech’ – or any speech in particular – remaining on the platforms created by private companies. The proposal is chilling, bizarre, and unconstitutional.”
