WATCH: Ted Cruz grills Facebook director after reports of increased suicide risk among teens who use Instagram

Sharing is Caring!
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) grilled Facebook during a Senate Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee hearing on Tuesday in response to the big tech company releasing a report which indicated that their social media platforms increase the risk of suicide among teen girls.

The subcommittee hearing intended to focus on Facebook’s privacy and competition; however, congressional members of both parties took the opportunity to grill Facebook over Instagram’s negative impact towards teens mental health. Instagram was bought by Facebook in 2012.

“I read a quote a minute ago. Quote, ‘We make body image issues worse for one in three teen girls.’ I didn’t write that, Facebook wrote that. Is that an accurate statement?” Ted Cruz asked Steve Satterfield, Vice President of Privacy and Public Policy at Facebook .
