Was Facebook right to shut down right leaning employee chat room?

Opening Argument

Facebook shut down conservative-leaning employee chat room, report says

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2017/08/16/facebook-shut-down-conservative-leaning-employee-chat-room-report-says.html
Facebook shut down an online chat room for employees to speak anonymously last year -- after right-leaning discussion about the 2016 election turned heated and alarmed company management, according to a report on Wednesday.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg shut the group down a month after the election and claimed employees used it to harass people, the news outlet added.
