Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have reportedly joined a campaign calling for large companies to withdraw advertising from Facebook until the platform takes action to curtail the spread of hate speech.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly given their support to the #StopHateForProfit campaign, backed by an American multinational  beverage corporation and more than 100 companies that have withdrawn advertising from social media platforms over hate speech concerns.

As per reports, a multinational beverage company has boycotted Facebook for 30 days, despite Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive, announcing policy changes on Friday, including a promise to label, but not remove, political posts that violate its rules on misleading and dangerous content.

Mark Zuckerberg has faced a backlash after Facebook didn't take down a post by Donald Trump which declared: "When the looting starts, the shooting starts."
