Idris Elba Says Everyone Deserves to Get Verified on All Social Media Platforms

Idris Elba doesn’t understand why social platforms are hoarding their verified badges.

The actor took to his Instagram to share his thoughts on social media and why he is pushing for universal verification.

“People in the public eye get verified on social media,” he wrote in a statement shared by The Shade Room, “the process of verification requires them to prove their IDENTITY, so everyone knows WHO is speaking.” He then went on to write, in all caps, “SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANIES SHOULD MAKE THIS MANDATORY FOR ALL USERS.” He continued on and said that allowing private accounts to merely exist on social media is like “boarding a plane and not having to show I.D.”

He continued, “If cowards are being supported by a veil of privacy and secrecy, then social media is not a safe place. It’s an aeroplane that allows travelers to wear balaclavas.”

He added that if these “cowards” wish to spew racism or hate online, that they should “say it with [their] name” and not with their username.
