Here’s Why This Rock & Roll Icon Told Zuckerberg to Eff Off

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, asked permission to use a song from one of the world’s most famous bands.

Zuckerberg contacted Pink Floyd, Roger Waters specifically, because he wanted to use their song ‘Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)’ for a film promoting Instagram.

The Mexican newspaper La Jornada released a video clip of Waters taking part in a panel discussion on freeing Julian Assange, where he shares the story of how he just received an email from Facebook asking to use the Pink Floyd classic tune.

Water’s response is epic!

“It (email) arrived to me this morning, to request the right to use my song Another Brick in the Wall 2 – in the making of a film to promote Instagram. It’s a missive from Mark Zuckerberg to me. With an offer for a huge – HUGE – amount of money.”

“And the answer is “Fuck You! No fucking way!” [Crowd applauds]

“I only mention that because this is the insidious movement for them to take over absolutely everything. Those of us who do have some power, and I do have a little bit, in terms of the control of the publishing of the songs I do, so, I will not be a party to this bullshit!”

“We want to thank you for considering this project, we feel the core sentiment of this song is still so prevalent and necessary today, which speaks to how timeless your work is…that’s true, and yet they want to use it to make Facebook and Instagram even bigger and more powerful than it already is so that it can continue to censor all of us in this room and prevent this story about Julian Assange from getting out to the general public, so the general public would go, “What?!”

“No. No more….how did this little prick, who started off by saying, “She pretty, we’ll give her four out of five stars. She’s ugly, we’ll give her one star.” How the fuck did he get any power in anything? And yet here he is, one of the most powerful idiots in the world.”

WATCH:

Roger is right. Facebook wants to control the world, and they think they can buy off anyone who gets in their way.

Way to stick to your principles, Roger!

    1. How many of the folks who commented against
      Zuckerberg are still members/users of Facebook?

      If you are still using Facebook, take a minute to
      find the definition of HYPOCRISY!!!

      You are criticizing him while making money for him simultaneously. Do you feel stupid or what??

  1. Thank you Roger and May God Bless you and Call you unto Himself—Remain on the narrow road that leads to Heaven, the other wider road doesn’t. Repentance is necessary and cleansing too. Jesus Loves you, so please walk on the path of righteousness for your sake and His Glory.

  2. Zickerburg stole the Facebook idea from fellow alumni
    Had to buy the rights! Now his jello brain is demolishing our youth!!

  3. We should of ALL taken this position when we had a real President in the White House President Donald J Trump, Now look at our Country and World, thousands of jobs lost everyone & his uncle coming into our Country, total lawlessness in our cities, while Joey and Company are filling their bank accounts, that’s why the election was fixed for no other reason, look @ the street scam sitting in both Houses Federal & State GOD BLESS AMERICA GOD BLESS OUR WORLD GOD BLESS ISRAEL

    1. Amen🙏 I applaud your comment👏👏👏
      It’s 100% the truth. God bless 🇺🇸

    2. You are so right. President Trump is my president. I cannot use that word in the same sentence as Biden. He is a traitor and a puppet. Zuckerberg spent 300-400 million to pay off officials in the Nov 3 election. He spent 30 million just in Fulton County, GA. We all know who the true president is. It is heartbreaking and treasonous what Biden and the Congress scum are doing to this country and it’s citizens.
      God Bless America.

  4. Thank you for being the voice of many who do not have the stage to do so. I agree with you 100%. I have had enough of these Socialists, Marxists, Communists voters, hollywood elites, politicians, that continue, with the help from the media, to try and indoctrinate the masses with their lies, hate, and deceit and try to wrap it all up into a pretty package and call it Globalism or The New World Order. I say if you do not like the Freedom of choice, freedom of speech that conservatives share, then move to a country that is like you. We are not for sale to your authoritarian world. Heck NO!

  5. Bravo Roger!

    Thank you for using your power and voice to say NO.

    Keep rockin’!

  8. Roger Waters, thank you. Your response was the best !! Thank you for standing up to that jerk.
    I am 65 years old. My favorite band has always been and still is Pink Floyd.
    Your response, f—- off, means a lot to a lot of people. You may never know how far you saying “NO” will reach to the people who still love America and the world. Zuckerberg is a hate-filled, retched man who wants all the power he can buy.
    Thank you Roger !!
    God Bless ❤️❤️
