International pop Singer and Actress Selena Gomez has expressed worry over social media platforms and their detrimental effects to her generation as they could be dangerous and contribute to a world of disinformation and bullying.
The 26year old made this known while speaking at the Cannes Film Festival, where she is promoting her new film: “The Dead Don’t Die”.
Selena who is recorded as one of the world’s most watched Instagram stars, with over 150 million followers, is known to have taken breaks from the platform.
Though she post pictures and messages on Instagram and Twitter, Gomez said she tries to do so in a constructive manner, conscious of the dangers of online pressure for many of her young fans as she claimed many young people were unaware of important news issues.
In her new horror-comedy, directed by Jim Jarmusch and co-starring Bill Murray, Adam Driver and Tilda Swinton, Gomez plays a “wifi-obsessed hipster” in the midst of a climate change-induced zombie apocalypse.
