Kim Kardashian West and dozens of other celebrities have announced they will freeze their social media accounts to protest against the spread of “hate, propaganda, and misinformation.”

“Misinformation shared on social media has a serious impact,” Kardashian West wrote in a statement on Tuesday.

The move is part of the #StopHateforProfit campaign, which was organized by civil rights activists.

The celebrities will freeze their accounts for 24 hours on Wednesday.

Other celebrities that have agreed to take part in the boycott include actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as singer Katy Perry.

Actor Ashton Kutcher, who has millions of followers and is also joining the boycott, said, “these tools were not built to spread hate [and] violence.”

The organizers of the #StopHateforProfit campaign, which was launched in June, accuse Facebook and Instagram of not doing enough to stop hate speech and disinformation.
