That’s what Jim Carrey says Facebook users should do, as the actor looks to pull the mask off fake news.
The star of “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “The Mask” said on Twitter on Tuesday that he’s dumping his Facebook stock and deleting his page because the social media giant profited from Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election via spreading false news with Russian origins, and says the company is still not doing enough to stop it.
The 56-year-old Carrey encouraged other investors and users to do the same. He ended his tweet with the hashtag “unfriendfacebook.”
“For a long time America enjoyed a geographical advantage in the world with oceans on both sides to protect it,” Carrey said. “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.”
Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
