Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Non responsive when needing help

Another example if this double posting issue, I've been reporting this for weeks now!!! What im like pissed off about is you not responding EVER tp acknowledge my issue and no damn concern I guess it's time to take it tp social media where all the millenials go to make a complaint on companies that are useless Everytime I text a message it duplicates, it's frustrating, but more so is if anyone has a problem on messenger and uses their nifty useless, "report a problem" option in upper right hand corner, don't expect any help nor the problem to be corrected. NOBODY IS HOME! And this is my start of posting everywhere, maybe someone will contact me, that's what happens when someone reports an issue with the corporate office I work for!
