Stop cyber bullying and fake news, say artistes
KUALA LUMPUR: A group of local celebrities have come together for a ‘’End Cyber Bullying and False Information Dissemination” campaign aimed at combating and addressing such problems on social media.
Themed “Spread Facts Not Lies” and “I Am With You”, the campaign, which has the support of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, aims to educate the public on their rights to protect themselves from cyber bullying and the spread of false information.
The campaign, initiated by popular TV host-actress-entre- preneur Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor, was launched yesterday by Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak.
“Today, I’m honoured to launch a campaign against false news with local celebrities. I thank them for their determination to help us fight fake news.
“Fake news can involve all Malaysians, regardless of position and it’s important for us to make sure that such news do not become our culture,” Salleh told reporters when met after the launching of the campaign here. – Bernama
