Selena Gomez isn't done talking about what's going on with Facebook. The singer fired off a pointed tweet on Tuesday (Dec. 29) decrying what she said was the social media giant's failure to stop the spread of misinformation about the life-saving COVID-19 vaccines that are rolling out across the country and the world.
"Scientific disinformation has and will cost lives. @Facebook said they don’t allow lies about COVID and vaccines to be spread on their platforms," wrote Gomez, who in September shared a private message she sent to FB founder Mark Zuckerberg and CEO Sheryl Sandberg about what she said were FB and Instagram's problem with spreading "hate, misinformation, racism, and bigotry."
"So how come all of this is still happening?" Gomez's latest call-out continued. "Facebook is going to be responsible for thousands of deaths if they don’t take action now!" Her tweet included a link to a post from the Center for Countering Digital Hate in which the group's CEO, Imran Ahmed, spoke to the BBC News about what he said was the critical, widespread failure of major social media companies to remove coronavirus misinformation in the UK.
