Facebook must obey German law

Facebook will have to abide by German laws banning racist sentiment even if it might be allowed in the United States under freedom of speech, Justice Minister Heiko Maas said in an interview with Reuters.

I'm not sure I understand this. Are they saying we in the US will have to obey German law when using Facebook because a German might see it? If so good luck with that.

Thoughts?
