Selena Gomez hits out at Facebook again for not curbing misinformation about Covid

Selena Gomez confronted Facebook again for not curbing COVID-19 misinformation.  The star singer put Facebook on blast recently for not doing enough to stop it!

Selena took to Twitter retweeting from last year, which said, in part, “Scientific disinformation has and will cost lives…Facebook is going to be responsible for thousands of deaths if they don’t take action now!”

“In December I asked @Facebook and @Instagram to take action on lies about COVID and vaccines,” she penned in a new thread, citing recent data that claims only a handful of users are behind the vaccine misinformation.

“@CCDHate found that 12 people are behind 2 in 3 of all misinformation,” said Selena, linking to the study for her nearly 65 million followers to read.  It claims that the 12 bad agents produce 60 per cent of the lies spreading across the service.

“So why do they still refuse to act?”

Selena also commended President Joe Biden and Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy for pressurizing Facebook to resolve this matter as fast as possible.

“My hope is that Facebook, instead of taking it personally… would do something about the misinformation, the outrageous misinformation about the vaccine,” Biden said last week.

Since, Thursday 610,264 Americans have died of COVID-19, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

On a more uplifting note, Selena Gomez recently celebrated her 29th Birthday!
