I cant 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, she wrote in social-media posts. Misinformation shared on social media has a serious impact on our elections and undermines our democracy.
Kardashian West said she will freeze her Instagram and Facebook accounts on Wednesday, Sept. 16, and urged others to do the same. She included a link to the Stop Hate for Profit coalitions website in her posts. The reality TV star, activist and entrepreneur, who is married to Kanye West, has more than 188 million Instagram followers and over 30 million on Facebook.
A Facebook rep declined to comment but called out the companys recent announcements about improving safety and policy enforcement, including an ongoing list of updates at this page.
Kardashian Wests reference to Facebook taking steps only after people are killed appears to be a reference to the companys failure to remove a militia groups call to arms amid the unrest in Kenosha, Wisc., following the shooting last month of a Black man. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, in a town hall meeting, conceded that the company made an operational mistake in not removing the Kenosha Guard group from the platform before two protesters in the city were shot and killed Aug. 25 by a 17-year-old Illinois boy who had traveled to the city intending to engage in violence.
The Stop Hate for Profit campaign, launched by groups including the NAACP and the Anti-Defamation League earlier this summer, was joined by hundreds of companies who pledged to suspend advertising on Facebook-owned platforms temporarily. The goal of the initiative is to spur the company to more aggressively police for and block hate speech and misinformation.
The organizers of Stop Hate for Profit had called for users to freeze their Instagram accounts on Sept. 16.
