Ben Shapiro Sets The Internet Ablaze With Tweets About Zuckerberg’s Testimony

Mr. Zuckerberg faced another congressional grilling on Tuesday. It appeared the Facebook CEO was doing a decent enough job of answering questions honestly, but he definitely had a few slip ups. His team of lawyers would definitely take a few mulligans if they could. One of his responses gave Ben Shapiro the chance to make the internet melt down.

Shapiro pointed out a statement Zuckerberg made during his testimony.

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) asked, “We’ve been told that platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the like are neutral platforms, and the people who own and run them for profit … bore no responsibility for the content. Do you agree now that Facebook and other social media platforms are not neutral platforms but bear some responsibility for the content?”

Zuck’s response? “I agree that we’re responsible for the content.”

This is when Shapiro brought the heat:

In a piece on The Daily Wire, Shapiro stated,”Zuckerberg may have just opened himself up to a world of legal hurt. Platforms are generally not held legally responsible for the content posted on those platforms — so liability issues ranging from copyright violation to slander aren’t serious concerns for platforms … But that’s not the case with publishers. Publishers are responsible for the content that is added to their platforms … If the same were held to be true for Facebook, the company would immediately become subject to hundreds of millions of dollars in legal liability.”

At this point the internet was going nuts in response to Shapiro’s tweet.

This wasn’t the only slip up by Zuck. He also described Silicon Valley as “an extremely left-leaning place.”

It’s pretty clear that Zuckerberg responded to the 2016 election by turning Facebook into a political outlet. Now he is paying for that decision.
