Kim K, Leo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx & Others Vow to ‘Freeze’ IG for a Day
Kim kardashian, Leonardo DiCaprio and a bunch of other celebrities together forbid themselves to make Facebook stop and listen … putting its biggest attraction on the ice a little.
A slew of stars are taking part in a 24-hour Instagram freeze on Wednesday in partnership with Stop Hate for Profit … leading the charge. It’s a pretty simple idea … a one-day moratorium on the publication of ALL ABOUT IG, to be respected Mark Zuckerberg and co.
Their ultimate goal is to let FB know that people are fed up with not running a tighter ship on their platform … which as you may have heard has become the home of lots of misinformation and uncontrolled hate speech – all in the name “fairness”.
SHFP does not buy this ‘fairness’ argument, and its famous supporters like Katy Perry, Jamie foxx, Ashton kutcher, Jennifer lawrence, Michael B. Jordan, Sacha Baron Cohen, Naomi Campbell … and many others.
Obviously, the campaign goes beyond just A-listers … so far, this post has been shared by over 200 million accounts on different media platforms … and it is increasing by the hour. .
So you can imagine – IG will probably be pretty quiet at midnight. No stories, no hashtags, no greedy posts … nothing, at least from those who signed up.
And, if you’re wondering if there’s a specific list of requests here, there is. Among some of the exploitable elements, the SHFP would like to see happen … the removal of FB groups promoting violence, militias, white supremacy, conspiracy theories and other harmful content; suppress misinformation posts and slap people with fact checks … to name a few.
The real problem here for Facebook is with the First Amendment and how far too far is censorship … even ideas you don’t agree with.
Now we know what you might be thinking … if these celebrities are really talking about this cause, why just ‘freeze’ activity for a day? Why not a week ?? Or … forever?!?
Great question, and we’re guessing the answer is money – all the dough some of them make for IG posts. No one wants to bite the hand that is feeding. At least not too hard, anyway 😅
Our sincere thanks to
