Family sue Meta over daughter’s eating disorder in lawsuit that cites leaked Facebook Papers

A family has sued Meta over their pre-teen daughter’s eating disorder in a lawsuit that heavily cites the trove of leaked Facebook Papers.

Lawyers for Alexis Spence claim that her “addictive” use of Instagram caused her to suffer from the eating disorder as well as self-harm and thoughts of suicide over several years.

The lawsuit, which was filed in US District Court for the Northern District of California, brings up the Facebook Papers, internal company documents that state its own research shows that the Instagram had a significant mental-health impact on teenage girls.
