Selena Gomez Slams Facebook for Allowing Neo-Nazis to Sell Racist and Hateful Products
Selena Gomez blasted Facebook for allowing Neo-Nazis to sell racist merchandise on the platform.
On Wednesday (December 2), Gomez shared a startling screenshot of extremely hateful merchandise advertised on Facebook and Instagram. (Instagram is now owned by Facebook.)
One of the products is a t-shirt which reads "#WhiteLivesMatter" and depicts Donald Duck (a white duck) with the Nazi symbol stomping on a black duck. Another shirt says to support your local chapter's command, while a third has Kyle Rittenhouse depicted as a hero and calls for his immediate release. Rittenhouse shot three people and killed two during a Black Lives Matter protest in August.
"Neo-Nazis are selling racist products on Facebook and Instagram," the original post read. "Facebook has left these pages online, despite being told about them 3 days ago. @Facebook, please remove this neo-Nazi network in full, now."
Gomez retweeted the post and wrote, "I’m speechless. @Facebook @Instagram how are you tolerating this hate? There’s still accounts there even though you have been notified!!"
Facebook has not yet released a statement regarding the posts. At the time of this article's publication, it seems as though one of the Instagram accounts selling the merchandise has been deactivated or suspended.
