Jim Carrey urges people to boycott Facebook because of Russian election meddling

im Carrey has urged people to delete their Facebook accounts because he believes the company profited from Russian interference in the US election.

“I’m dumping my @ facebook stock and deleting my page because @facebook  profited from Russian interference in our elections and they’re still not doing enough to stop it. I encourage all other investors who care about our future to do the same. # unfriendfacebook” — he said in a tweet

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the matter.

The company testified to Congress in October that Russian-backed content reached as many as 126 million Americans during and after the 2016 presidential election.

In a statement, Carey said: “For a long time America enjoyed a geographical advantage in the world with oceans on both sides to protect it.:

 “Now, social media has created cyber-bridges over which those who do not have our best interest in mind can cross and we are allowing it. No wall is going to protect us from that”– he added.
“This easy access has to be more responsibly handled. What we need now are activist investors to send a message that responsible oversight is needed. What the world needs now is capitalism with a conscience.” — he said.
