Vice's article is based on psmag;
https://psmag.com/social-justice/how-hate-speech-boosts-bigotry-and-intolerance
Psmag base's it's source on this study:
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ab.21737/full

I give to the study that they tried to do something correct, but such facts that they aquired on the web is ridiculous when you're aware of poe's law.
This is how your create outrage, there's nothing concrete but journalist are so desperate for baitclic and outrage-clic that they do this nonsense.
