The hashtag #AskTheGays gathered steam this week after Donald Trump said that he was a great ally to the gay community, and that if people want evidence they should "ask the gays."

Here & Now's Robin Young talks with Femi Oke of Al Jazeera English about that story, a Fox Sports sideline reporter who was fired after derogatory comments she made during a Facebook Live segment, and the family of a victim of the Paris terror attacks that is suing Facebook, Twitter and Google over her death.

Guest

Femi Oke, host of The Stream on Al Jazeera English. She tweets @FemiOke.
