Taking it to Instagram Kardashian called upon Facebook and Instagram to curtail hate speech and propaganda on its platforms ahead of the election 2020.
“Misinformation shared on social media has a serious impact on our elections and undermines our democracy,” wrote Kim as she went on to announce her decision to deactivate IG account for 24 hours on Wednesday.
