According to comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stands out for an authoritarian style of company management.
The comedian compared some facts and tweeted: "We don't let 1 person control the water for 2.5 billion people. We don't let 1 person control electricity for 2.5 billion people. Why do we let 1 man control the information seen by 2.5 billion people? Facebook needs to be regulated by governments, not ruled by an emperor!"
The opinion of the comedian was suddenly supported by Elon Musk, who wrote in response to his tweet, "#DeleteFacebook It’s lame." This hashtag appeared back in 2017 as part of the Delete Facebook campaign, related to scandals surrounding mass data leakages of social network users.
Some Twitter users have responded to Musk's call with memes about Zuckerberg and Facebook:
Musk has neither Facebook nor Instagram accounts. He deleted Instagram in August 2018. At the same time, Musk criticized Facebook quite often, but he was not so fierce about Instagram because it was "quite independent," albeit controlled by Zuckerberg's company.
The other day, Musk posted a joke on his Twitter, which was appreciated even by Pavel Durov, the founder of Telegram. The image showed the new mechanical arm emojis from Apple, Google, Microsoft, Samsung, and WhatsApp. Musk signed the picture with the phrase "New emoji! Last one comes with free phone hack," most likely having in mind the recent sensational story of hacking the head of Amazon Jeff Bezos's iPhone via the messenger.
