Roger Waters has made his feelings about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg known during an event over the weekend. Waters spoke on freeing of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange before turning to an offer made by Zuckerberg about using Pink Floyd's 1979 track "Another Brick in the Wall" for an advertisement. Waters called Zuckerberg a "little prick" and "one of the most powerful idiots in the world."
"'We want to thank you for considering this project. We feel that the core sentiment of this song is still so prevalent and necessary today, which speaks to how timeless your work is, truly," said Waters as he read off Zuckerberg's letter to him during the event. He then added "And yet they want to use it to make Facebook and Instagram even bigger and more powerful than it already is, so it can continue to censor all of us in this room and prevent this story about Julian Assange getting out. So the general public could go, 'What? What? No! No more!'"
"I will not be a party to this bullshit, Zuckerberg. You think, 'How did this little prick – who started off by saying [on his original pre-Facebook website FaceMash], 'She is pretty, we'll give her a four out of five,' 'She's ugly, we'll give her a one' – how the fuck did he get any power in anything? And yet here he is, one of the most powerful idiots in the world.”
