Megan Fox is not happy with social media, and it has nothing to do with her own presence on it. Megan, who will appear on New Girl as Jess' slightly-tougher subletter, is speaking out about how Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms can have a serious impact on the lives of the young people growing up with it.

Megan, who has two kids of her own, told Entertainment Tonight that she sees a lot of harm happening from kids getting too invested in social media. Instead of focusing on the important stuff, kids are worried about how many likes they're getting. That's definitely not something that anyone should be prioritizing, but children and teenagers are far more susceptible to the harms of that mentality. Megan said:

There is a hierarchy in schools of who's the cool kid based on who has the most followers and who has the most likes. It's a really terrible message to wake up every day and have your kids going, 'Who liked my photo?' and 'Who's following me?'...Parents should pay attention to that and have your kids off of it. You're not ready for that s--t when you're a teenager. You need to be an adult before you can start messing around with that. It's irresponsible and it's dangerous.

As a celebrity, Megan says she's seen some seriously dark stuff associated with her own account, which include fans making threats to kill themselves if Megan won't follow them back. It's that kind of stuff that has caused her to get off Twitter completely, and I don't blame her at all.

Fortunately for Megan, her oldest son is only three years old, which means she has a few more years before she has to start monitoring his internet access. Megan's mentality should definitely help her kids see that social media isn't a healthy form of validation, and let's hope that other parents start reminding their kids of the same thing.
