In 2020, the 29-year-old actress and singer asked Facebook and Instagram to take action on lies about COVID and vaccines.
The night before her birthday arrived, Selena Gomez took to Twitter to call out Facebook and Instagram for misinforming about COVID and vaccines! In 2020, the 29-year-old singer took to the same social media platform to ask Facebook to take action on lies about COVID vaccines.
"Scientific disinformation has and will cost lives. @Facebook said they don’t allow lies about COVID and vaccines to be spread on their platforms," she wrote, "So how come all of this is still happening? Facebook is going to be responsible for thousands of deaths if they don’t take action now!"
Yesterday (July 21) night the actress called them out again. "@Potus (President Joe Biden) and @Surgeon_General (Dr. Vivek Murthy, U.S. Surgeon General) have finally called for action by @Facebook. So why do they still refuse to act?," she tweeted.
On her birthday (July 22), Selena thanked her fans for the birthday love and, in honor of her special day, asked them to donate to the Rare Impact Fund, which helps provide mental health services to those who need it the most.
