The video which was filmed by Australian terrorist Brenton Harrison Tarrant showed the disturbing moments he entered a Mosque and killed 50 Muslim worshipers. Facebook says it scrubbed 1.5 million videos of the New Zealand mosque massacre within 24 hours of the attack.

In a statement shared on Twitter Saturday, Facebook noted that more than 1.2 million of that video were blocked “at upload.”

“Out of respect for the people affected by this tragedy and the concerns of local authorities, we’re also removing all edited versions of the video that do not show graphic content,” Mia Garlick, a spokeswoman for Facebook New Zealand.

While Facebook seems to be getting it together, it was said that YouTube is having a more difficult time shutting down the video of the New Zealand shooting due to how large platform is, The Washington post reports.
