Selena Gomez Slams Facebook Over Spread of False Coronavirus Info
Selena Gomez‘s war in opposition to Facebook rages on.
On Tuesday, Dec. 29, the 28-yr-previous pop star slammed the corporation for allegedly allowing false promises about the coronavirus vaccines to spread on social media.
Linking to a video of the CEO of the nonprofit group the Middle for Countering Digital Detest, Gomez tweeted, “Scientific disinformation has and will value lives. @Fb reported they do not make it possible for lies about COVID and vaccines to be distribute on their platforms. So how occur all of this is still taking place? Fb is likely to be liable for 1000’s of deaths if they do not get action now!”
Earlier this thirty day period, Facebook declared on its website that it was “combating COVID-19 misinformation throughout our applications.” The company also claimed it “will start out eradicating untrue promises about these vaccines that have been debunked by general public health and fitness experts on Fb and Instagram,” introducing, “This is another way that we are applying our policy to clear away misinformation about the virus that could lead to imminent physical damage.”
