[8/8/17 SPUTNIK] A California street artist, no fan of Mark Zuckerberg, has taken a hard stance against the billionaire Harvard dropout after rumors surfaced that the Facebook CEO may or may not be running for the US presidency.
How did the street artist publicize his thoughts, you wonder? Well, for starters, he shared photos of his latest project on Facebook, of course!
Plastered across Pasadena, outside of Los Angeles, multiple posters reading “F**k Zuck 2020” by local artist Sabo included the social media platform’s classic thumbs-up icon with an added twist.
Though the latest creation is just the first installment of Sabo’s “Things to do while in Facebook Jail” series, the idea, according to Mashable, came to him during the 11th day of a 30-day suspension from Facebook.
If Zuckerberg did make a run for the oval office, Sabo told Mashable he’d be “moving his trusted band of social justice warrior employees into the White House to begin oppressing everyone who doesn’t think the way they do.”
Known for politically charged installations, Sabo didn’t just zero in on Zuckerberg — Arizona Senator John McCain and the Black Lives Matter movement were also on the firing line.
While the social media mogul says he’s definitely not running for president, Zuckerberg’s links to Joel Benenson, a top adviser to former US President Barack Obama; Amy Dudley, a former communications adviser to Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine; and David Plouffe, Obama’s campaign manager during his 2008 presidential run, suggest otherwise.
The anti-Zuckerberg artist is also offering interested buyers the chance to obtain posters and bumper stickers featuring the “F**k Zuck” pieces through the site UnsavoryAgents.
