Kim Kardashian West announced; The reality TV star, on Tuesday, said that she will freeze her Facebook and Instagram accounts for one day, in protest against the spread of hate speech and disinformation on social media.
“I love to communicate with you directly via Instagram and Facebook, but I cannot sit and remain silent while these platforms continue to allow the spread of hate, propaganda and misinformation – which groups have created to sow division and divide America,” Kim wrote in a post on her Twitter account.
The protest will take place on Wednesday as part of the “Stop Hate for Profit” campaign, a coalition of civil rights groups that led to a month-long boycott of Facebook ads over the summer.
The coalition says it wants Facebook to take “reasonable steps to counter the spread of racism, disinformation and hatred” shared on its platform.
