American singer Selena Gomez has come forth with all guns blazing once more against tech giants like Google, Facebook and Instagram.

The Rare hit maker called out the firms for failing to take down hate speech and misinformation as she retweeted a post from the Center for Countering Digital Hate.

The post brought to light the existence of Neo-Nazi accounts on Instagram and Facebook and how groups like these continue to sell merchandise through their platforms.

"Neo-Nazis are selling racist products on Facebook and Instagram. Facebook has left these pages online, despite being told about them 3 days ago. @Facebook, please remove this neo-Nazi network in full, now,” the post read.

Re-sharing the post by CCDH, Gomez added: "I’m speechless. @Facebook @Instagram how are you tolerating this hate? There’s still accounts there even though you have been notified!!"
