Megan Fox Believes Teens Should Stay Off Social Media
Megan Fox says teenagers can’t handle the pressures of social media. Do you agree?
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight on the set of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’ Fox explained why she feels social media networks are so harmful to young egos.
I think it’s really toxic for our youth culture,” Fox told ET on the set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. “There is a hierarchy in schools of who’s the cool kid based on who has the most followers and who has the most likes. It’s a really terrible message to wake up every day and have your kids going, ‘Who liked my photo?’ and ‘Who’s following me?'”
Fox says that she’s seen firsthand the kind of destruction that can occur when kids put too much emphasis on their Internet followers.
“When I was on Twitter for five days, I would have 12- and 13-year-old kids going, ‘If you don’t follow me back, I am going to kill myself.’ I was like this is [expletive] awful,” the 29-year-old actress said. “Parents should pay attention to that and have your kids off of it. You’re not ready for that [expletive] when you’re a teenager. You need to be an adult before you can start messing around with that. It’s irresponsible and it’s dangerous.”
We definitely think she makes a great point…
We also think it’s ironic she’s got kids using her image to floss on social media!
