Selena Gomez calls out the CEOs of social media after U.S. Capitol breach

On the heels of rioters in support of President Trump storming the United States Capitol, Selena Gomez has directed her discontent toward social media. The star issued a message to executives for Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube hours after the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. was breached by a swarm of rioters protesting the results of the 2020 presidential election. Gomez's candid statement to social media leaders comes as others have urged Twitter to delete Trump's account. The president has faced consequences on the platform for recent posts, including Twitter removing several of his tweets. Twitter and Facebook have since temporarily suspended posts to his accounts as a result of website policy violations. This is not the first time the singer has spoken out against social media platforms. In late December, she slammed Facebook, questioning why disinformation about coronavirus and vaccines was allegedly spreading on its platforms and urged them to take action.
