Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Leonardo DiCaprio showed their support for the protest against hate which is spreading on social media platforms. Stop Hate For Profit organized the protest.
The celebrities decided to “freeze” their Instagram and Facebook accounts for 24-hours on 16 September 2020, they posted nothing during this period.
Talking about the same Kim Kardashian shared on Instagram “Misinformation shared on social media has a serious impact on our elections and undermines our democracy. Please join me tomorrow when I will be ‘freezing’ my Instagram and FB account to tell Facebook to #StopHateForProfit.”
Kim Kardashian has a following of over 188 million. This “freeze” really had a great impact on her first followers.
Even the star Leonardo DiCaprio shared his views in support of the protest with two very strong posts on Instagram.
With this action the celebrities were hopeful that this “freeze” will have a profound effect on the minds of people, and the spread of hate and misinformation will lessen.
