The former Disney actress says in a heated message on her Twitter page, ‘Facebook is going to be responsible for thousands of deaths if they don’t take action now.’
AceShowbiz –Selena Gomez has slammed Facebook for not taking action against “lies” being spread about Covid-19 and the vaccine on their site.
The “Rare” star took to her Twitter page on Tuesday (29Dec20) to share a video from BBC News, in which Imi Ahmed – CEO for the Center for Countering Digital Hate – told the outlet that while social media companies such as Facebook have claimed to be doing everything to stop the spread of misinformation “in reality, they’re doing absolutely nothing.”
Alongside the video, Selena shared her own message, in which she wrote, “Scientific disinformation has and will cost lives. @Facebook said they don’t allow lies about COVID and vaccines to be spread on their platforms.”
