“Woke Inc.” writer Vivek Ramaswamy argued Facebook must be held accountable whether it is “lying” about shopper safeguards throughout an interview on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, saying it could possibly be a case of “consumer fraud.” Ramaswamy warned towards making the platform answerable for potential results on teen customers saying doing so might truly make it even “more socially powerful than it is.” His remarks come as a Facebook whistleblower is expected to testify on Capitol Hill Tuesday over the platform’s potential influence on some younger customers. 


VIVEK RAMASWAMY: I’m a critic of Facebook, and I feel there’s quite a bit to criticize Facebook for, however I feel we will not be sloppy about what we criticize them for and what we do not. I feel that this whistleblower sounds to me quite a bit like a disgruntled worker who may need been fired, who’s pissed off and really throwing the kitchen sink on the firm, with out having even have elevated her issues with the corporate. Steals confidential knowledge and exposes it publicly? I do not suppose that is the appropriate approach and the appropriate mechanism to carry Facebook accountable. 

To the opposite, I feel that Facebook is mendacity about what they’re doing. I feel that makes for a fairly good case of shopper fraud – telling customers you are doing one factor, making the world a greater place, doing all of the issues that you just’re doing to safeguard customers with out truly doing it. That’s what we should always maintain Facebook accountable for. It is their mendacity
