Kim Kardashian announces she's 'freezing' her Instagram, Facebook
The reality star is known for her massive following on various social media platforms
Media mogul Kim Kardashian has announced that she's moving away from a pair of social media platforms.
The 39-year-old reality star announced via Twitter on Tuesday that she plans to leave Instagram and Facebook behind.
"I love that I can connect directly with you through Instagram and Facebook, but I can’t sit by and stay silent while these platforms continue to allow the spreading of hate, propaganda and misinformation," Kardashian said, blaming the creation of such content on groups dedicated to dividing Americans.

She continued: "Misinformation shared on social media has a serious impact on our elections and undermines our democracy. Please join me tomorrow when I will be 'freezing' my Instagram and FB account to tell Facebook to #StopHateForProfit."
Her "freezing" of Instagram and Facebook are part of a campaign by Stop Hate for Profit, a group that has accused social media sites of prioritizing profit off of "hate, bigotry, racism, antisemitism, and disinformation" over their users, as their website states.

In addition to her personal accounts, Kardashian announced that the official Facebook and Instagram accounts for her beauty brands and Skims clothing line will also "be going dark" on Wednesday.
Reps for Facebook declined to comment while reps for Instagram did not immediately respond to Fox Business' request.
A handful of other celebrities have joined Kardashian in supporting the cause, including Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lawrence and Sacha Baron Cohen.
