In line with her fight against the social vice, Kardashian informed her followers that she would be freezing her Facebook and Instagram accounts. She posted a "Stop Hate" image and also wrote on her Instagram:
"I love that I can connect directly with you through Instagram and Facebook, but I can't sit by and stay silent while these platforms continue to allow the spread of hate, propaganda, and misinformation…"
Kardashian, a KUWTK star, added that she made her decision in hopes that the mentioned platforms would be geared to take appropriate actions. She concluded her caption with the hashtag "#StopHateForProfit."
The SKIMS founder also shared the same image on Twitter while including the caption from her Instagram post. The Stop Hate For Profit campaign was launched earlier in the year with petitions directed at Facebook and Instagram to curtail the level of false and harmful information on the media platforms.
Although her mom, Kris, and sister, Khloe, wanted her to retract her decision, Kim made it known that she wanted to save her marriage.
Celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Lawrence, Kerry Washington, Sacha Baron Cohen, Ashton Kutcher, Amy Schumer, and Micahel B Jordan, among others, have also shown their support.
Facebook and Instagram previously addressed the campaign by reassuring that measures were being taken to stop misinformation. When the movement was launched, many companies stopped running their ads on Facebook for a month.
While Kardashian is showing solidarity against false and harmful social media information, she has also been working tirelessly to keep her marriage from failing.
Fans received some shocking news some weeks ago after she made it known that her family's longtime reality show, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," would be taking a bow in 2021.
According to a close source, she made her decision in a bid to save her marriage with music mogul, Kanye West. Kardashian reportedly made a vow to West about quitting the 14-year long reality show.
The source added that she informed her famous family members about the life-changing decision after her meeting with West. Although her mom, Kris Jenner, and sister, Khloe Kardashian, wanted her to retract her decision, she made it known that she wanted to save her marriage.
