    Kim Kardashian West is joining other celebrities to freeze her Facebook and Instagram accounts on Wednesday, in a campaign urging the world’s biggest social media company to curb the spread of hate and propaganda.

    “Misinformation shared on social media has a serious impact on our elections and undermines our democracy,” Kardashian West wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday expressing support for the “Stop Hate for Profit” campaign against Facebook Inc.

    Actors including Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lawrence and Sacha Baron Cohen also tweeted on Tuesday, calling on Facebook to do more.

    Kardashian West has become an influential powerhouse of social change, raising the issue of climate change to her 188 million followers, and lobbying the White House for criminal justice reform.
