Mark Hamill, who famously played Luke Skywalker in the “Star Wars” saga, tweeted that he’s quitting Facebook.
“So disappointed that #MarkZuckerberg values profit more than truthfulness that I’ve decided to delete my @Facebook account,” he tweeted. “I know this is a big ‘Who Cares?’ for the world at large, but I’ll sleep better at night.”
He punctuated his statement with an emoticon of the Malaysian flag and a bag of money separated by a greater-than sign. He then corrected the tweet to indicate he meant to use an American flag, which is similar to Malaysia’s.
Hamill’s frustration stems from Facebook’s ongoing reluctance to police political ads for misinformation. The online media platform did announce last week that it would work to eliminate “deep fake" videos. However, Facebook has taken a Laissez-faire approach to written content, stating that postings should be "scrutinized and debated in public,” not by Facebook.
Russian agents used fabricated accounts on platforms including Facebook to influence the 2016 presidential election “in sweeping and systematic fashion,” according to an extensive investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
