The COVID-19 vaccines make your body magnetic, right? Of course not. But the myth is just one popular piece of immunization misinformation spreading around social media platforms such as Facebook, and Selena Gomez has had enough. Passionate about keeping people safe from the dangers of such misleading statements, she took to Twitter for the second time to call out the social media platform for not taking action.
In December, Gomez retweeted a video from the Center for Countering Digital Hate in which CEO Imran Ahmed talked to BBC News about the dangers of vaccine misinformation. "Scientific disinformation has and will cost lives," she shared Dec. 29, 2020. "@Facebook said they don’t allow lies about COVID and vaccines to be spread on their platforms. So how come all of this is still happening? Facebook is going to be responsible for thousands of deaths if they don’t take action now!"
