Lawsuit: Meta placed ads next to content sexualizing minors

January 16, 2024

Meta has been accused of running corporate ads next to content that sexualizes underage users. Placing ads alongside illegal content poses a serious threat to brand safety. New Mexico Attorney General, Raúl Torrez, has accused Meta of “enabling adults to find, message and groom minors” for sexual exploitation. Match reportedly informed Meta that ads for its dating apps were running adjacent to “disturbing” and “clearly illegal” content, including graphic films of women being murdered, reports the Guardian. When Meta allegedly failed to take action, Match’s CEO, Bernard Kim, wrote a complaint directly to Mark Zuckerberg – but he allegedly did not respond.
