Mark Zuckerberg Takes Over D.C. — In Cardboard

    Seeking to draw attention to Facebook data scandals, global activist organization Avaaz set up a “troll army of fake Mark Zuckerbergs” outside of the capital building, New York Daily News reported.

    The demonstration is timed with Zuckerberg’s Senate hearing on the recent Cambridge Analytica data misuse scandal.

    One hundred identical cardboard cutouts of the 33-year-old CEO all sported T-shirts reading “Fix Fakebook.”

    Avaaz, a group known for its demonstrations, wrote in a press release that Tuesday’s protest is “part of [their] campaign calling on Mark Zuckerberg, Internet CEOs and government regulators to fight disinformation campaigns threatening our democracies.”
