Jim Carrey has taken another shot at Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a new controversial portrait.
The actor previously slammed the Zuck via portrait in February when he said he was deleting his Facebook stock and page claiming the social network ‘profited’ from Russian interference during the 2016 US election.
His latest post comes after Facebook is facing a huge backlash after reports found data firm Cambridge Analytica attained private information from 50 million Facebook users.
In the tweet, Carrey wrote:
Who are you sharing your life with? #regulatefacebook.’They trust me, dumb f—ks’ — Mark Zuckerberg 2004.
— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) March 20, 2018
He sent the following statement to Business Insider:
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.
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.
On Monday it was revealed Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth had dropped $5.1 billion in mere hours.
The Facebook founder was hit hardest by the company’s stock dropping almost 7 per cent.
Zuckerberg’s net worth now stands around $69.5 billion following the erasure of $37 billion in market value.
After another public relations debacle for Facebook—in which a Trump-affiliated data firm was accused of improperly gleaning information on more than 50 million users—the company’s stock plummeted nearly 7% through 1 pm Eastern Time on Monday, erasing $37 billion of market value.The decline had the biggest impact on Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s cofounder and CEO, whose net worth fell $5.1 billion.
Zuckerberg, who owns about 16% of Facebook’s shares, is now worth an estimated $69.5 billion, according to Forbes’ real-time rankings of the world’s billionaires.
He is currently the seventh-richest person on the planet, down from fifth, after falling behind Zara cofounder Amancio Ortega and Carlos Slim Helu, Mexico’s richest person.
In January, Zuckerberg was reported to have lost $3.3 billion thanks to changes to how Facebook operates.
They believe that Facebook is facing a phenomenon known as ‘context collapse’ which basically means that as users share less about themselves online the data that Facebook sells to advertisers becomes less valuable.
By encouraging people to once again share personal information on the site they may be able to increase Facebook’s commercial value.
How about sharing Jim Carrey’s portrait, how would that go?
