• The most powerful IDIOT in the world?

    "Grouchy former Pink Floyd bassist/vocalist Roger Waters launched an expletive-laden attack on human-impersonating Facebook CEObot Mark
    Zuckerberg after receiving a request from Instagram to use one of his
    songs in a promotional film."

    his answer?

    "The answer is: fuck you! No fucking way!"

    Not evenf for "a huge, huge amount of money."

    Waters had shown a crowd the request (on paper) and announced his
    response "with obvious relish". He then apparently stated:

    "I only mention that because it's the insidious movement of them to take
    over absolutely everything. So those of us who do have any power, and I
    do have a little bit – in terms of the control of the publishing of my
    songs I do, anyway – so I will not be a party to this bullshit, Zuckerberg."


    Waters concluded his rant against Zuckerberg by poking fun at the
    undignified origins of Facebook as a site for rating the attractiveness
    of female Harvard students: "How did this little prick – who started off
    by saying, 'She's pretty; we'll give her a 4 out of 5. She's ugly; we'll
    give her a 1' – how the fuck did he get any power? And yet here he is,
    one of the most powerful idiots in the world."


    My guess: he capitalizes on the "social bullying" you typically find in
    a high school or junior high school, i.e. the "jocks" and "queen B's"
    and their "approval" and "cancelling" power.

    Oh, and creepy-stalker spying on EVERYTHING you do, and then SELLING
    that information to the highest bidders. And advertising.

    [and this is YET ANOTHER reason why I do NOT do Faece-Bitch]

    Kudos to Waters and others with the GUTS to tell Zuckerberg to "Zuck Off".
