Natalie Portman Stands Against The System Of Facebook That Allows Hate And Extremism

Natalie Portman took to Instagram to criticize Facebook with the claim of its fiercely opposed civil rights protections and benefiting from hate. Two times Golden Globe winner actress posted an image which has been created by the organization “Stop Hate For Profit” and added a caption that read:

“While I love using this platform to connect with you all, I also cannot sit by and watch as Facebook allows hate and extremism to spread faster and further than ever before.”

Then the Academy Award-winning Portman announced that she was standing with certain organizations to stop Facebook’s deep harm to communities and the democracy. She urged her fans and followers to join her:

“Join me in standing with the country’s leading civil rights organizations – including @ColorofChange, @ADL_National, and the @NAACP – who have called on all users of Instagram and Facebook to protest the amplification of hate, racism, and the undermining of democracy on those platforms by freezing our accounts and not posting for 24 hours this Weds, Sept 16.”

As remember, the campaign, Natalie Portman supported, started when Facebook did not censor hate speech and statements that have harmful factors. Once President Trump‘s “When the looting starts, the shooting starts” statement was published by Facebook, the boycott arose quickly.

Portman concluded her words as follows:

 “This should be an opportunity for Facebook to work with these organizations and the community at large to stop the spread of disinformation and make it a safer platform for all. #StopHateforProfit #Instafreeze Visit http://stophateforprofit.org/demand-change to learn more.”
