The legal dispute involving Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest and the battle against Facebook clickbait was dismissed in court.

Billionaire Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest’s attempt to hold Meta, Facebook’s parent company, accountable in Australia for an alleged cryptocurrency clickbait advertising scam has hit a roadblock. The mining magnate initiated a criminal case against the social media giant, alleging criminal recklessness in allowing fraudulent ads for a cryptocurrency investment scheme featuring his image to proliferate on its platform. However, the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions, expected to take over the case in the WA District Court, unexpectedly filed a discontinuance notice, effectively halting the legal proceedings. Forrest expressed disappointment, emphasizing the impact on innocent victims who lost their life savings to the fraudulent advertisements. He criticized Facebook’s perceived immunity to Australian laws, arguing that hardworking Australians are left unprotected and vulnerable to scams facilitated by the lack of accountability of social media platforms.
