CANNES- Actress singer Selena Gomez has blasted social media calling it dangerous and terrible for young generation.

Speaking during a Cannes press conference for her new movie “The Dead Don’t Die”, Gomez said, “I think that our world is going through a lot obviously. What Jim (Jarmusch) gestured to in the film is that social media has really been terrible for my generation.”

"I understand that it's amazing to use your platform but it does scare me when you see how exposed these young girls and young boys are," she added.

Selena, 26, has 150 million followers on Instagram. Gomez said pervasive internet bullying "scares" her and left many young people "devastated".
