Hollywood celebrities join Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to launch the #StopHateForProfit campaign on Facebook and Instagram to reform the platforms on hate speech, violence, and misinformation.
Almost everyone agrees that controversy spreads its wings more than knowledge on Social media platforms.
Especially on Facebook and Instagram, people tend to go beyond normal conversations and even abuse or bully if spoken against their opinions.If the authorities want, they can restrict hate and discrimination on Social media, says Hollywood celebrities.
Accordingly, celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lawrence, Mark Ruffalo and others have collaborated to launch #StopHateForProfit campaign online.For this, celebrities are going to skip Facebook and Instagram for a day.This is to urge Facebook to reform policies against hate speech on its platforms.
Expressing her support Kim Kardashian wrote on Twitter “I love that I can connect directly with you through Instagram and Facebook, but I can’t sit by and stay silent while these platforms continue to allow the spreading of hate, propaganda and misinformation – created by groups to sow division and split America apart only to take steps after people are killed.
Misinformation shared on social media has a serious impact on our elections and undermines our democracy. Please join me tomorrow when I will be “freezing” my Instagram and FB account to tell Facebook to #StopHateForProfit.”
