Lister also requested Facebook not to remove his message in a hope it would be an “eye opener to the people that are looking for happiness”.

“I don’t know what to do anymore,” he wrote in the post, clarifying to friends and family that he had recently split with his girlfriend but emphasising “this isn’t her fault”.

“Now we are separating I don’t feel like I can cope without her full love any longer. She was and still is my everything. I don’t think I will be able to get over this.”

“I don’t want to wait till I get over the situation because she’s the only one that’s ever made me truly happy,” Lister said.

“This isn’t (girlfriend’s name) fault at all, we both just were not right for each other in the end. I did a lot of bad in the relationship that may have led up to this.”

“From day one to the end, I should have cared the same as I did during happy times,” Mirror cited his post as saying. “I guess people slowly move apart from each other and I would do anything to stop this.”

“I know I’m being selfish considering I have my two families, my dog snoop, my reptiles and my princess (girlfriend’s name),” the post read.

He posted the message on December 12, shortly after he was eported missing to police. The police found his body in the Cottingley area of Leeds on December 13. (IANS)

Fake Ads on Facebook Spreading Rumours About anti-HIV Drugs

"Facebook and Instagram immediately remove the advertisements outlined above that are harming public health," it added

Fake ads on Facebook are spreading rumours about the ill-effect of anti-HIV drugs, targeting LGBTQ Facebook and Instagram users and are causing significant harm to public health, a non-profit organization GLAAD has written in a letter to CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

“We are urgently reaching out to Facebook and Instagram regarding factually inaccurate advertisements which suggest negative health effects of Truvada PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis).

“We request that Facebook and Instagram remove the advertisements and also publicly address the misinformation that the platforms allowed to spread,” the non-profit organization said in the letter.

Using Facebook’s and Instagram’s targeted advertising programs, various law firms are attempting to recruit gay and bisexual men who use Truvada PrEP as an HIV preventative to join a lawsuit, claiming that the drug has caused harmful side effects in this patient population, specifically bone density and kidney issues.

“This is despite numerous studies underscoring the safety of TDF in HIV-negative PrEP users,” said GLAAD.

Leading public health officials, medical professionals, and dedicated PrEP navigators and outreach coordinators have shared that these advertisements on Facebook and Instagram are being directly cited by at-risk community members expressing heightened fears about taking PrEP.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that when taken daily, PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV from sex or injection drug use.

“Studies have shown that PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99 per cent when taken daily.”

By allowing these advertisements to persist on their platforms, said the letter, Facebook and Instagram are convincing at-risk individuals to avoid PrEP, invariably leading to avoidable HIV infections.

“You are harming public health.”

Facebook was yet to comment on the letter.

Facebook’s Advertising Policy regarding misinformation in ads states that “Facebook prohibits ads that include claims debunked by third-party fact checkers or, in certain circumstances, claims debunked by organizations with particular expertise.”

We are the organizations with “particular expertise,” said GLAAD.

They demanded immediate action to ameliorate the harm which has already been caused to those who may be seeking preventative treatment against HIV.

“Facebook and Instagram immediately remove the advertisements outlined above that are harming public health,” it added. (IANS)
