Mark Zuckerberg Threatened With Imprisonment in London Standoff: After Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg repeatedly declined the UK Parliament’s request that he testify and turn over documents regarding how his platform was used to influence elections, angry MPs reportedly sent a sergeant at arms to Zuckerberg’s hotel to “escort” him back to them where he was threatened with heavy fines and imprisonment.
Now I’m certainly no expert on English law - but I think if I were Mr Zuckerberg, I’d think about giving Julian Assange a call and ask him if they’ve got another extra bedroom over there at the Ecuadorian Embassy. Otherwise, next thing you know - poor Zuck may find himself making all his future Facebook posts from somewhere deep inside the Tower of London.
So here we are once again - Facebook getting caught with egg on its face. I don’t like to sound critical, but if you ask me - isn’t it about time Zuckerberg steps down and hands over the reins to Jesse Eisenberg?
