Actress Megan Fox is not at all in support of the kids being active on social media and has urged parents to keep their children away from it.

The 29-year-old “Jennifer’s Body” is not a fan of social media and feels it is toxic for the coming generation, reported ET online.

“I think it’s really toxic for our youth culture,” Fox told ET on the set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. “There is a hierarchy in schools of who’s the cool kid based on who has the most followers and who has the most likes.

“It’s a really terrible message to wake up every day and have your kids going, ‘Who liked my photo?’ and ‘Who’s following me?’,” Fox said.

The actress, who has had some really terrifying first hand experiences with kids on Twitter, said the young followers at times posted destructive messages.

“When I was on Twitter for five days, I would have 12- and 13-year-old kids going, ‘If you don’t follow me back, I am going to kill myself.’ I was like this is (expletive) awful.

“Parents should pay attention to that and have your kids off of it. You’re not ready for that (expletive) when you’re a teenager. You need to be an adult before you can start messing around with that. It’s irresponsible and it’s dangerous,” she said.
