Reactions to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s grilling by the European lawmakers highlighted a variety of emotions on social media. Comments online addressed the inaptitude of the Q&A session, strange behavior of some Members of the European Parliament and the awkwardness of the Zuckerberg-Farage encounter.
Addressing Mr. Zuckerberg, the former leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) Nigel Farage said:
“Mr. Zuckerberg, I am the largest user of Facebook in all the European Union institutions in terms of followers, in terms of engagement, so I’m your best client here in the room. I have no idea of the value of that but I am pleased to see you as I hope you are pleased to see me.”
He then told the Facebook CEO that it was his creation that made “Brexit or Trump or the Italian elections” possible.
