Family Sues Meta, Claiming Instagram Caused Daughter’s Eating Disorder

The family allege that as Alexis’ social media addiction grew worse, she “became sleep deprived, became anxious, and felt guilty about what she was doing to her family,” who did not know that she was operating multiple accounts online.  

They also added that because of “Instagram’s addictive design and product features,” her “relationship with her parents greatly suffered,” noting that it often felt like it was “her and her devices against her parents.” 

As a result of Instagram pushing “extreme weight loss content” onto Alexis’ feed, her parents claim she became “obsessed with her weight,” adding, “From the outset, Alexis’ Explore page was filled with nothing but overly thin models and thigh gaps.” 

In 2018, Alexis, who was described in the suit as a “confident and happy child,” was hospitalized for depression, anxiety and anorexia. The family alleges that it was a direct result of “the harmful content and features Instagram relentlessly promoted and provided to her in its effort to increase engagement.” 

The suit alleged that, following her hospitalization, Alexis has undergone “professional counseling, in-patient programs, outpatient programs, and eating disorder programs, and she will likely require help in the form of a service dog for the rest of her life.”

“She must stay in constant contact with her doctors, and fights to stay in recovery every day,” the documents continued. “Alexis will suffer permanent mental and emotional damages because of what Instagram has done.”

Mama June Upsets Pumpkin’s Marriage in Road to Redemption Clip

Mama June‘s new relationship is messing with her daughter’s marriage.

June’s daughter LaurynPumpkin” Efird and her husband Josh Efird discuss June’s latest shenanigans and how it’s negatively impacting their relationship in this exclusive clip from the June 10 episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption.

“Did you see that s–t about Mama?” Pumpkin asks Josh. The “s–t” Pumpkin is referring to is the news that June is dating a mysterious 24-year-old.

Not only that, Pumpkin speculates that June stranded her own daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, to rush home to her new boy toy.

“Now she’s living over there with some 24-year-old guy,” Pumpkin says. “Damn, you can’t just sit f–kin’ down for a minute?”

Josh feigns shock as his wife complains about her mother, which probably isn’t the best approach. “I’m shocked,” Josh jests. “I mean, never seen it coming. Did you?”

Pumpkin isn’t in a joking mood, responding “What a smart ass, shut up.”

Jeremy Clarkson aims savage jibe at Springwatch presenters after badger ‘stamping’ remark | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Jeremy Clarkson caused horror when he told the world that he would “happily stamp repeatedly” on the head of a badger if he encountered one on his land. Now he has directed a savage jibe at the presenters of Springwatch after they spoke out in defence of the species, countering that it is the “most terrible” one on the planet.

Jeremy, 62, exclaimed on Twitter today: “I can’t imagine the nation’s hedgehogs, lapwings or farmers are as pleased about badgers as the presenters of Springwatch.”

He had already exchanged angry comments with Chris Packham earlier this year about who was responsible for the decline in hedgehogs, with Chris insisting that farmers were to blame, and Jeremy pointing to badgers.

The comment today, made in view of his 7.7 million followers, reignited the debate.

@AlanPWig1 hit back: “I like badgers more than people.”

@Gra_Rus suggested that Springwatch would not be interested in farming as it “damages the countryside and isn’t good for wildlife”.

@ThisGuyCraig tried to lighten the mood with a joke, jibing: “Badgers are the Piers Morgan of the animal world; 90% of people hate them but that 10% always exist.”

Jeremy had previously addressed Chris directly, appealing: “Come on, Chris, you’re a countryman, so I know you know the real reason the poor things are in decline.”

He continued: “A quarter of all the world’s badgers now live in the UK. There are so many that some are struggling to find a home, and therefore wander the streets at night in vests, drinking Stella.

“These vile creatures give cattle TB, they knock down walls and live on a diet of vital earthworms, lapwing eggs . . . and hedgehogs.”

However, Chris, a vice president at the RSPCA, had already made his feelings clear, denouncing the badger cull of 2020 as “cruel and ineffective”.

Chris, who is vice president of the RSPCA, has previously criticised the badger cull in 2020, calling it “cruel and ineffective”.

So far the Springwatch star has made no response to Jeremy’s jibe this evening.

‘Completely destroy you’ Cliff Richard feared heart attack after false sex assault claims | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Sir Cliff Richard, 81, has made an impassioned plea after admitting he feared he would suffer a heart attack when he was falsely accused of child sexual assault charges. The Mistletoe and Wine singer denied all claims and was never arrested.

He sued the BBC over its coverage of a police raid on his home, winning £210,000 in damages in 2018. 

The broadcaster was also ordered to cover Cliff’s legal costs, which exceeded £850,000, and South Yorkshire Police was ordered to pay him £400,000 damages. 

After Cliff spent more than £3million clearing his name, he made a speech in the House of Lords on Wednesday explaining that he will never get over the ordeal. 

He is campaigning to change the law so that suspects have anonymity unless they are charged with a crime. 

It added that it was “pleased” to have reached an “amicable settlement” in the case. 

Officers had been investigating an allegation made by a man who had accused Cliff of a sexual assault dating back to 1985.

Cliff was never arrested or charged, and the case was dropped two years later.

“It was very intrusive,” Cliff told Jonathan Ross.
