The doctored graphic photos of Taylor Swift, which were created with artificial intelligence and circulated Thursday on X, raised more concern about its use.
On Friday, White House said it was alarmed by the fake images and said social media companies have an important role to play in enforcing their rules to prevent the spread of such misinformation.
"This is very alarming. And so, we're going to do what we can to deal with this issue," White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said at a news briefing.
Jean-Pierre added that Congress should take legislative action on the issue.
"Lax enforcement against false images, possibly created by artificial intelligence (AI), too often disproportionately affects women,".
"So while social media companies make their own independent decisions about content management, we believe they have an important role to play in enforcing, enforcing their own rules to prevent the spread of misinformation, and non consensual, intimate imagery of real people," she noted.
