The U.S. singer and actress Selena Gomez said social media is terrible and warned about the fake news rampant on social media.
The pop icon-turned-actress was speaking at the Cannes film festival where her film “The Dead Don’t Die” was put at display.
She said, our world is going through a lot obviously and that social media has really been terrible for her generation.
Her comments come as a Malaysian teenager took her own life after asking on Instagram if she should live or die.
She said, “the social media platform scares me when you see how exposed these young girls and young boys are” adding, “social media left many young people devastated.”
She said, “I think it’s pretty impossible to make it safe at this point.”
Gomez said, the tools that helped make her famous were destructive in the wrong hands.
