If only the government reacted to Zuckerberg in the way that Roger Waters, famous for co-founding Pink Floyd, recently did.
Apparently, Mr. Zuckerberg thinks virtually everyone is for sale, which is precisely why he rather boldly requested the use of one of Pink Floyd’s most famous songs, “Another Brick in the Wall” to be used in yet another self-aggrandizing Instagram advertisement.
Instagram, which was acquired by Facebook in 2012, is an even more vapid version of the Facebook platform, and clearly not one that Waters wants anything to do with.
Thus, Zuckerberg likely did not anticipate the rather bold response from Waters, who is decidedly unimpressed with Zuckerberg taking on his self-appointed “arbiter of truth” role (in spite of hilariously claimed that Facebook serves no such role).
Even better, Waters made his response to Zuckerberg highly public, mainly when he began reading out loud from the letter Facebook sent to him, soliciting the use of his song.

Not only is Waters’ mimicking of Facebook’s corporate talk hilarious, but his response to Facebook is even more hilarious. Moreover, Waters apparently did not feel the need to communicate in the most politically correct way.
However, Waters certainly communicated in one of the most honest ways.
Which means directly and bluntly, with little concern for the “micro-aggressions” that seem to aggrieve so many “adult” Americans (the same ones hooked on social media in the first place).
“So it’s a missive from Mark Zuckerberg to me… with an offer of a huge, huge amount of money and the answer is, ‘F**k you! No fucking way!” [Source: Breitbart]
Excellent. Beyond excellent.
From the use of the word “missive” to the clear rejection “of a huge, huge amount of money,” Waters is completely unimpressed by Zuckerberg, and he’s even less impressed by the rather devious machinations the platform has been involved with.
“I only mention that, because this is the insidious movement of them to take over absolutely everything … Those of us who do have any power, and I do have a little bit, in terms of the control of the publishing of my songs I do anyway …
I will not be a party to this bull****, Zuckerberg.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Gotta love the fact that Waters calls out Zuckerberg directly. It should frankly happen more often, so that he cannot merely hide behind the multi-headed Medusa that Facebook has become.
Waters also calls out the censorship practices of Facebook, which make the platform even more loathsome.
“It’s true … And yet … they want to use it to make Facebook and Instagram even bigger and more powerful than it already is so that it can continue to censor all of us in this room, and prevent this story about Julian Assange getting out to the general public, so the general public could go, ‘What? What?’” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Despite Waters’ own more liberal views, including the fact he is not exactly the biggest fan of Trump, he at least has enough sense to recognize extreme danger when he sees it.
However, one of the best parts of Waters’ diatribe included his direct attack on Zuckerberg’s earlier days with the platform, which were decidedly un-progressive.
“How did this little pr*** who started off by saying, ‘She’s pretty, we’ll give her a 4 out of 5, she’s ugly, we’ll give her a 1,’ how the … did he get any power? … And yet here he is, one of the most powerful idiots in the world.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
As humorous as Waters’ take is, one theory certainly emerges into why Zuckerberg is “one of the most powerful idiots in the world,” much like AOC or Stacey Abrams, and that one theory can be summed up in one sentence:
Serving as useful idiots to the Democrat Party comes with significant personal benefits.
Fortunately, Waters does not need to bow down to the Democrats for that, nor does he have to bow down to any of their lackeys, “pr***k” Zuckerberg included.
