Standing strong: Selena Gomez took to Twitter to condemn social media platforms for allowing Neo-Nazis to sell ‘racist products’ to its users

Gomez shared a tweet from the Center for Countering Digital Hate (@CCDHate) which blasted the social networks.

‘I’m speechless,’ she wrote on Twitter. ‘@Facebook @Instagram how are you tolerating this hate? There’s still accounts there even though you have been notified!!’ 

The original tweet from CCDHate showed pictures of apparel featuring an animated version of 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse carrying an AR-15 rifle from the night he shot three protesters and killed Anthony M. Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum during the Kenosha, Wisconsin demonstrations.

Kyle was ordered on Thursday to stand trial for the shootings where he faces two felony charges and will be arraigned on Jan. 5 in Kenosha County Circuit Court, according to CNN

Rittenhouse was released from custody last month after posting $2million bail, with his attorney confirming that Mike Lindell, CEO of My Pillow, Inc., and actor Ricky Schroder helped raise funds for his release through crowdsourcing.

‘Neo-Nazis are selling racist products on Facebook and Instagram. Facebook has left these pages online, despite being told about them 3 days ago. @Facebook, please remove this neo-Nazi network in full, now,’ the original tweet said.
