GOP Senator John Kennedy blasted Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg during his congressional testimony this week; telling the technology titan that his “user agreement sucks” and should be re-written “in English.”
“Here’s what everybody’s been trying to tell you today. And I say this gently: Your user agreement sucks!” said Kennedy as the room erupted in laughter.
“You can spike me 75 IQ points, if I can figure it out you can figure it out,” he added. “The purpose of that user agreement is to cover Facebook’s rear-end. It’s not to inform your users about their rights. You know that, and I know that.”
“I would suggest you go back home and re-write it. Tell your $1200 an hour lawyers you want them written in English, so the average American can understand, that would be a start,” he added.

FACEBOOK FAIL: Zuckerberg Admits ‘ERROR’ in Censoring Diamond and Silk
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted Wednesday that his social media team made an “enforcement error” when they labeled pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk “unsafe,” adding that he plans on “reversing” the decision.
The tech titan was speaking before members of Congress when he was asked to comment on his platform’s designation of the conservative twosome as “unsafe to the community.”
“Why is Facebook censoring conservative bloggers, such as Diamond and Silk? Facebook called them ‘unsafe to the community.’ That is ludicrous. They hold conservative views, that isn’t unsafe. What’s your response to that?” asked one congressman.
“Mr. Congressman, in that specific case our team made an enforcement error. We’ve already gotten in touch with them to reverse it,” admitted Zuckerberg.
