Sasha Baron Cohen believes that Mark Zuckerberg needs to follow Donald Trump to the unemployment line. Now that Joe Biden is the new President Elect of the United States, the Hollywood actor says that big tech needs a whole lot of sweeping changes too, beginning with the Facebook founder. Here’s what you need to know.
Cohen made his feelings about the matter clear when he posted a photo of Trump and Zuckerberg together at the White House. He simply captioned it with, “One down. One to go.”
Sasha Baron Cohen Says Mark Zuckerberg Needs To Follow Donald Trump To The Unemployment Line
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Sasha Baron Cohen has gone after Mark Zuckerberg. Just last year the actor blasted Big Tech for being the greatest “propaganda machine ever” during a speech that he gave at the Anti-Defamation League’s Never Is Now Summit on Anti-Semitism and Hate in New York City. He squarely put all of his blame on Silicon Valley.
“All this hate and violence is being facilitated by a handful of internet companies that amount to the greatest propaganda machine in history,” Cohen, who received the ADL’s International Leadership Award, said. “The algorithms these platforms depend on deliberately amplify the type of content that keeps users engaged—stories that appeal to our baser instincts and that trigger outrage and fear.”
During his speech, Cohen also singled out Mark Zuckerberg, who has gone on the record to defend his company’s policies as a matter of free expression.
Cohen continued, “The First Amendment says that ‘Congress shall make no law’ abridging freedom of speech, however, this does not apply to private businesses like Facebook. We’re not asking these companies to determine the boundaries of free speech across society. We just want them to be responsible on their platforms.”
