MONTAGE: Zuckerberg Doesn’t Know — His ‘Team’ Will ‘Follow Up’

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified in front of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees on Tuesday and left quite a few senators hoping for better answers.


Over and over again, Zuckerberg awkwardly informed the committees that he didn’t know the answer to their question, wasn’t “aware” of what they were referencing or needed his “team” to follow up with them later.

“If you’d like I can have my team follow up with you after this,” was a common response from the tech billionaire.

“I can certainly have my team get back to you on any specifics there that I don’t know sitting here today,” he told Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell, for example.

Zuckerberg was especially stumped when Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz grilled him about political censorship on Facebook and asked if any left-leaning pages had ever been censored. (RELATED: Ted Cruz Grills Zuckerberg Over FB’s Censorship Of Conservatives)

The amount of times Zuckerberg was forced to admit his ignorance about his own website likely didn’t win him any favorability points with the senators, or the people watching at home.
