Kim Kardashian West is the latest celebrity to announce that she is freezing her Instagram account in protest.
The protest aims to make Facebook accountable for the spread of 'hate' and 'misinformation' on its platforms.
It is part of the #StopHateforProfit campaign, which has been organized by civil rights activists.
Celebrities joining the protest will freeze their Instagram accounts for 24 hours on Wednesday, September 16.
I can't 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, Kim Kardashian West.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jennifer Lawrence, Katy Perry, and Ashton Kutcher are also joining the protest.
I can't sit idly by while these platforms turn a blind eye to groups and posts spreading hateful disinformation, Katy Perry.
The organizers of the protest believe Facebook is not doing enough to stop the spread of disinformation on its platforms.
In July 2020, over 90 businesses paused their advertising on Facebook in support of the #StopHateforProfit campaign
