Recently, 28-year-old Selena Gomez has been a frequent critic of popular social networks. This time it hit Facebook.
Yesterday, she tweeted a BBC video starring Yimi Ahmed, CEO of the Center for Countering Digital Hate. In the video, he says that companies like Facebook are doing everything they can to keep out false information about the coronavirus when in reality they are doing absolutely nothing.
Scientific misinformation has cost and will continue to cost lives. @Facebook said they are not allowed to spread lies about COVID and vaccines on their platforms. So why is all this still happening? Facebook will be responsible for thousands of deaths if they don’t take action now! https://t.co/IAtDpNT5Tt

This is the second time in the last month that the singer has criticized the social network. She recently accused Facebook as well as Instagram of supporting Nazi organizations. The star was extremely outraged by the fact that posts were posted on the platforms selling T-shirts with the words White Lives Matter and swastikas.
