The new Christmas-themed film Godmothered is set to be released on Disney Plus on Dec. 4, but one of the film’s stars, Isla Fisher, feels strongly about the impacts around social media and the concept of “going viral,” one of the themes addressed in the film.

“I think social media, just as a platform, has to just be rethought in a major way,” Fisher said bluntly at a virtual press conference for the film. “It’s spreading conspiracy and hate and lies, and it’s threatening our planet and democracy, and the publishers should abide by…basic practices and standards and not be spreading nonsense, and being a platform for hate groups to join up.”

“I’m a big believer now that we’re on a precipice, we need to get in involved and…stop these big corporations changing the way we all think.”
