‘Facebook will be liable for a huge number of passings,’ said Selena Gomez

Pop symbol Selena Gomez never avoids bringing out tech goliaths over the spread of deception on their platforms. 

The Rare hit creator is busy again as she went to her Twitter and shot Facebook for the disinformation spinning out of control on its foundation about the COVID-19 antibody.

“Scientific disinformation has and will cost lives. @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!” she tweeted.

She composed this as a remark on a tweet by the Center for Countering Digital Hate in which the organization’s CEO Imran Ahmed was addressing BBC about a similar issue.

“We took a thousand bits of misinformation and got volunteers to report it using the platform’s own reporting systems,” he said.

“And less than 5% of it was taken down. The truth is we’ve been gaslit by the social media companies, they say they’re doing their utmost. But in reality, they’re doing absolutely nothing,” he added.
