Selena Gomez Wrote A Private Message To Mark Zuckerberg About Facebook's Racism Problem

Selena Gomez went straight to the leadership of Facebook and Instagram to combat the hate and racism issues on the social media platforms.

The 28-year-old singer and actress shared a private message she had written to Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg on her own Instagram Stories.

“Facebook and Instagram are being used to spread hate, misinformation, racism, and bigotry,” Selena wrote in the message. “I am calling you both to HELP STOP THIS.”

She added, “Please shut down groups and users focused on spreading hate speech violence and misinformation. Our future depends on it.”

Selena also stressed the importance of acting now, given the election is less than 50 days away

“We cannot afford to have misinformation about voting,” she continued. “There has to be fact-checking and accountability. Hope to hear back from you ASAP.”

Selena is joining the protest alongside other stars like Kim Kardashian, who participated in the #StopHateForProfit campaign earlier in the week. See what it’s about here…
