An employee of Facebook parent company Meta was reportedly captured on video admitting to sending sexually explicit messages to a person he believed to be a 13-year-old boy.
Jeren Miles, manager of community development at Meta, was filmed by a group of anti-pedophile activists discussing alleged sexually explicit texts with a person who said they were a 13-year-old boy. Miles allegedly planned to meet the boy at a hotel, according to the video.
A Meta spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Caller News Foundation that the man was a Meta employee, and was no longer with the company.
“The seriousness of these allegations cannot be overstated,” the spokesperson told the DCNF. “The individual is no longer employed with the company. We are actively investigating this situation and cannot provide further comment at this time.”
Miles identifies himself as “manager of community development” at Meta in the video when confronted by members of “Predator Catchers Indianapolis,” who were performing an amateur anti-pedophile sting operation. Miles admitted to the group that he sent sexually explicit messages to a person he believed to be a 13-year-old boy.
“I was flirting, I was talking to him,” Miles admitted, but said “there was never any intention of meeting up with him.”
However, Miles later acknowledged he had arranged to meet with the person he believed to be an underaged boy, telling the group “I gave information, I gave a location.”
