Jim Carrey is saying goodbye to Facebook and is dropping his stock in the company. The comedian revealed his plans in social media posts and said the reason is because Facebook “profited from Russian interference in our elections.” The post was accompanied by a drawing with the title “Fakebook.” Carrey also launched a hashtag that reads #UnfriendFacebook.
“I’m dumping my Facebook stock and deleting my page because Ffacebook profited from Russian interference in our elections and they’re still not doing enough to stop it,” Carrey wrote. “I encourage all other investors who care about our future to do the same.”
Carrey has not actually deleted his Facebook page of the publication of this story, but the last post on his page is the same warning he posted to Twitter. Carrey’s Facebook page, “Jim Carrey is Here,” has over five million followers.
