_ The “Borat” star tore into the Facebook CEO with a metaphor
about a restaurant owner and neo-Nazis _

,

 

Sacha Baron Cohen
[[link removed]] used
a metaphor involving a restaurant owner and neo-Nazis to tear into
Facebook [[link removed]] CEO Mark
Zuckerberg’s
[[link removed]] claim
that the social media platform champions freedom of expression.

The British actor and comedian posted a scathing thread on Twitter in
which he dubbed Zuckerberg’s speech at Georgetown University on
Thursday “disingenuous” and reminded the billionaire that “he is
not the government, but the owner of a private business and not
subject to the 1st Amendment!”

Just heard #MarkZuckerberg
[[link removed]]’s
disingenuous speech. He is not the government, but the owner of a
private business and not subject to the 1st Amendment!

“If he owned a fancy restaurant and 4 neo-Nazis came goose-stepping
into the dining room and were talking loudly about wanting to kill
‘Jewish scum,’ would he serve them an elegant eight-course meal?
Or would tell them to get the f**k out of his restaurant? It’s the
same thing,” added the “Borat” star.

“He has every legal right, indeed a moral duty, to tell them to get
the f**k out of his restaurant,” concluded Cohen, who last year
pranked numerous political figures
[[link removed]]
with his satirical Showtime series “Who Is America?” and most
recently portrayed
[[link removed]] real-life
Mossad agent Eli Cohen in Netflix’s thriller “The Spy.”

Zuckerberg’s address also drew criticism from Bernice King, the
daughter of the late civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr.
Zuckerberg in his speech alluded to the role of freedom of expression
in the civil rights movement.

“I’d like to help Facebook better understand the challenges #MLK
faced from disinformation campaigns launched by politicians,” King
replied, a reference to Facebook’s refusal to block ads
[[link removed]] featuring
false statements from politicians. “These campaigns created an
atmosphere for his assassination,” she added.

I heard #MarkZuckerberg
[[link removed]]'s
‘free expression’ speech, in which he referenced my father. I'd
like to help Facebook better understand the challenges #MLK
[[link removed]] faced
from disinformation campaigns launched by politicians. These campaigns
created an atmosphere for his assassination.
