New Mexico Sues Meta and CEO Mark Zuckerberg Over Child Protection Failures

New Mexico Attorney General Raul Torrez on Wednesday said the state sued Facebook and Instagram parent Meta Platforms and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, saying the social media company had failed to protect children from sexual abuse, online solicitation, and human trafficking.

“Our investigation into Meta’s social media platforms demonstrates that they are not safe spaces for children but rather prime locations for predators to trade child pornography and solicit minors for sex,” Torrez said in a statement.

He said Meta had enabled “dozens of adults to find, contact, and press children into providing sexually explicit pictures of themselves or participate in pornographic videos.”
