Meta Has Cancelled All Of Facebook Watch’s Original Programming, Leaving “Red Table Talk” To Search For A New Home
Now that Meta (the artist formerly known as Facebook) is trying to blend our lives into virtual reality, it’s finally doing away with all of the original Facebook Watch content streaming on its platform. Honestly, my first thought was, “Wait, there’s more than just Red Table Talk?” but apparently, there were tons of shows that once found their home within the graveyard of social media.

Kim and several other celebrities have vowed to stay off Facebook and Instagram for 24 hours today, to protest Facebook’s failure to address their hate speech problem.
The Real World is coming back, but don’t worry, since times have changed MTV has found a way to make sure all the youth still identify with all the mess and tomfoolery, while keeping things oh-so-hip.
