SHS is going after Big Tech.

Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced on Tuesday that state officials plan to file a lawsuit against Big Tech titans TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram (Meta) for using their algorithms to push addictive content targeted at children.

“The governor’s office said the lawsuits would fall under the state’s Deceptive Trade Practices Act, prohibiting unfair or deceptive acts or practices in or affecting commerce,” The Daily Wire reports.

“We have to hold Big Tech companies accountable for pushing addictive platforms on our kids and exposing them to a world of inappropriate, damaging content,” Sanders said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “Arkansas is leading the charge on filing three lawsuits against TikTok and Meta, the owner of Facebook and Instagram.”

From The Daily Wire:

The governor’s office said the legal actions come after a decade of watching social media companies evade government oversight while exploiting children for profit, pledging her administration would not tolerate “the failed status quo.” Sanders further accused Meta of putting the company’s growth “at all costs” before the well-being of children.

One lawsuit has already been filed against Meta for “targeting young users of its products to the detriment of their mental and physical health,” Fox News reported.
