On Tuesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared before a Senate committee to testify about handling of user data and other issues.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, cornered Zuckerberg on the company’s ongoing censorship of conservatives, including the recent brouhaha involving the pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk being declared “unsafe” to the “community.”
To many Americans, Cruz said, this is an indication of a pervasive bias at Facebook.
Zuckerberg appeared to be somewhat uncomfortable with the line of questioning and sought to dodge the questions Cruz put to him.
Cruz, for example, asked if any Planned Parenthood pages had ever been taken down.
So without further ado, here is the exchange we’ve been waiting to see for a very long time:
- Diamond and Silk: No one from Facebook has spoken to us about being labeled ‘unsafe’
- Too late: Facebook reconsiders ‘unsafe for community’ label against Diamond and Silk
- Diamond and Silk to Facebook’s Zuckerberg: ‘Suck it up, buttercup’ — Video
- Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in Meltdown Mode Over $70 BILLION in Lost Market Share
- New Facebook alternative gives conservatives a ‘site with a purpose’ without the censorship
