Kim Kardashian West to Freeze Instagram, Facebook accounts to protest platforms approach to hate speech

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Kim Kardashian West may have one of the largest social media followings on the planet — but she said she won’t be posting on Instagram on Wednesday.

The reality star, who also said she won’t be posting on Facebook, is joining many other celebrities who are “freezing” their Instagram accounts for one day to join a nationwide protest against Facebook.

The 24-hour “freeze” is part of a “week of action” on Instagram led by the Stop Hate for Profit coalition, which is “demanding parent company Facebook take action to address racism, hate, and disinformation on its platforms,” according to a press release.

The coalition is helmed by nine major civil rights and advocacy organizations, including the Anti-Defamation League and the NAACP.

The campaign’s goal is to call out the social media giant “for its role in inciting violence, spreading racism and hate, and contributing to electoral disinformation,” the release said. In addition to the posting pause, participants have also been asked to share a “series of coordinated messages” to their accounts this week.
