Will Ferrell Is The Latest Celeb To Officially Delete Facebook
It's been over a week since we found out that Facebook had been leaking all our personal data.
Users around the world have been quick to call out the app for the privacy breach, leading to #BoycottFacebook trending worldwide.
My company has, effective today, suspended our Facebook advertising.
OK, we're a tiny firm, with a miniscule budget, but still.
No more dollars for traitors.#BoycottFacebook

A recent addition to the boycott bandwagon is 50-year-old actor Will Ferrell.
In an ironic Facebook post, the actor stated "I know I am not alone when I say that I was very disturbed to hear about Cambridge Analytica's misuse of millions of Facebook users' information in order to undermine our democracy and infringe on our citizens' privacy."
Ferrell stated that he was keeping the post up for 72 hours, to then which he will be deleting the account immediately.
Will isn't the only public figure to make the cut, with Elon Musk coming out last week saying that he would be deleting the Facebook pages for SpaceX and Tesla.
