Celebrities Sign Letter Demanding Big Tech Censor Anti-LGBT Content

A group of celebrities is now calling for Big Tech companies to censor content opposing the LGBT agenda, such as material rejecting the idea that children should have access to “gender-affirming care.”

Multiple celebrities signed a letter stating that there has been a “massive systemic failure” to prevent hate and anti-LGBT disinformation on Big Tech platforms.

“We speak together with one voice to demand that your companies create and enforce stronger content and ad policies to directly confront the content that is causing online and offline harm to transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people,” the letter states.

“Despite the fact that every leading medical and psychological association affirms the safety and necessity of gender affirming healthcare for trans people, including youth, inflammatory disinformation falsely asserting that this healthcare is dangerous is allowed to fester on your platforms because it drives clicks and profit,” the letter claims.

“Trans youth and their families and care providers are being endangered by your negligence, causing many families to flee their homes,” the letter adds.

Celebrities such as Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Haley Baldwin Bieber, Camila Cabello, Gabrielle Union-Wade, Alyssa Milano, Elliot Page, and Demi Lovato signed the letter, which addresses leaders at Twitter, Meta, YouTube, and TikTok.

The celebrities pressed Big Tech companies to act against content involving “misgendering,” a term that liberals use when someone refers to a “transgender” person by their biological gender instead of their self-declared gender identity.

Pro-LGBT advocacy groups, such as GLAAD and the Human Rights Campaign, are among those supporting the letter. According to Fox News, GLAAD has advocated for social media companies and the government to restrict anti-LGBT content on social media.

In July 2022, GLADD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis replied to a question on CBS News about what types of restrictions should be implemented on social media, saying, “We do need government intervention here, and we need the right policies.”

“Targeted misgendering and deadnaming of trans and nonbinary people is a widespread mode of hate speech across all platforms, utilized to bully and harass prominent public figures while simultaneously expressing hatred and contempt for trans and non-binary people in general,” the letter declares.
