We at Twitchy usually try to stick to the blue-checkmark types who have some celebrity, but it was a retweet by actress Debra Messing that brought this tweet to our attention, and it’s garnered nearly 10,000 retweets in just a day.
In short: can spouses file a class-action lawsuit against Facebook for turning their spouses into alt-right crazies?
This is hard to write…
My husband of 33 years, a Veteran, was changed from a Conservative into an extreme alt-right crazy. Who is to blame? FUCKING FACEBOOK! Constant Clickbait. I feel like I'm married to a stranger.
Class Action against Facebook?

Any lawyers want to weigh in? Are we talking Facebook clickbait in general or memes promoted by Russian bots?

Who would win?

Wow. And here I thought Facebook was where one goes to see pictures of puppies and baby pictures. https://t.co/ZP4CKrgxjL

We’d always considered Facebook pretty solidly liberal. Isn’t the general consensus that Mark Zuckerberg is testing the waters for a 2020 Democratic run?
Oh Lord, this started my day with a good belly laugh. The comments are priceless. She actually replies at one point saying she would get divorced but she hates moving! Such loyalty! So much commitment! I bet he supports and loves her better than any lib she might hook up with. https://t.co/fvwHN1jnIZ

This thread is pure gold, you'd think these women were talking about their beloved's crippling alcoholism instead of mildly divergent political opinions https://t.co/FWdKZ0pOML

The Facebook scandal is turning into a rather predictable sci-fi plot where millions of people find their minds have been taken over by an alien force that said it was their friend. https://t.co/t6Z6jGiJ2F

Maybe your husband is waking up to the truth that CNN and MSNBC (among others) are a trashbin of lies and #FakeNews.

This is easy to write…
Instead of blaming your marriage issues on Facebook like Hillary is, go to marriage counselling to save a 33 year commitment to your husband. That's more important than who our President is.

Some good advice:
There is something simple. Keep talking. Never stop talking with him.
Be respectful and listen to him.
State your views with arguments.
You will not during a debate change his mind. But over months, it will be harvest time.
People change their mind over months, not hours.

Thank you for this awesome tweet.

What an awful situation to be in. I wish you strength. I’m curious if you also consider Fox News complicit in his transformation? Others I know like your husband started off being brainwashed by Fox and felt empowered and validated by Facebook.
— Meana Kasi (@meanakasi) March 22, 2018
Yes, absolutely. But Fox never came close to Clickbait pieces that were intended to sway people, i.e. "Save our country from (fill in blank). It was insidious, brilliantly (and dastardly) conceived, and overwhelmingly successful.

What do you have to say for yourself, Zuckerberg?
Here come the calls to claw our democracy back from Facebook, which helped a dictator steal the election https://t.co/qQdKiSasVY
