Facebook is under the spotlight yet again but for all the wrong reasons. A weird Facebook bug has caused serious trouble as it started spamming users' feeds with endless posts from celebrity accounts. The issue was spread worldwide as many users shared screenshots of their spammed Facebook feed.
Moreover, the global social media platform was also facing an outage. Users also complained about Facebook being down on Downdetector. The celebrity posts and Facebook outages could be linked to the same bug.

The Facebook celebrity posts were first spotted internationally, after which many Indians reported the same. The posts from top celebrities included images of turkey sandwiches, PayPal donations, and even promotions for cryptocurrency projects.
