Jim Carrey has a two-word message for Mark Zuckerberg — and it’s not “nice job!”
Actor/artist Carrey took a break from thumping Trump and his cronies on Wednesday to take aim at Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg, sharing his clear — yet somehow also cryptic — thoughts on Zuckerberg via his latest artwork.
In the piece, posted to Carrey’s Twitter account, the “Kidding” star wrote, “Hey #Zuckerborg. We know who you are. And we saw what you did.”
Carrey included a link to a New York Times article that accused Zuckerberg of ignoring, and then attempting to obscure, warning signs that Facebook could be “exploited to disrupt elections, broadcast viral propaganda and inspire deadly campaigns of hate around the globe.”
Carrey continued, “Here’s a little message from me in your native language: 01000110 01110101 01100011 01101011 00100000 01111001 01101111 01110101 00101110 00100000 00001101 00001010.”
Which translates from binary to English as “F— you.”
It’s not the first time that Carrey has gone after Facebook. In February, the actor announced that he was dumping his Facebook stock because the company “profited from Russian interference in our elections.”
“For a long time America enjoyed a geographical advantage in the world with oceans on both sides to protect it. Now, social media has created cyber-bridges over which those who do not have our best interest in mind can cross and we are allowing it. No wall is going to protect us from that,” Carrey said in a statement obtained by TheWrap.
“We must encourage more oversight by the owners of these social media platforms. This easy access has to be more responsibly handled. What we need now are activist investors to send a message that responsible oversight is needed. What the world needs now is capitalism with a conscience.”
