Washington — Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Wednesday he didn’t know anything about his website’s rejection of an ad from a Michigan political candidate, suggesting the social-media platform may have made a “mistake.”
At a House hearing, U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, asked Zuckerberg why former state Rep. Aric Nesbitt’s campaign announcement for the Michigan Senate would have been rejected for allegedly containing “shocking, disrespectful or sensational content, including ads that depict violence or threats of violence.”
The article went on to state the following:
Upton said the campaign ad was a “rather positive announcement” and questioned why it was excluded.
“Congressman, I’m not sure either. I’m not familiar with that case. It’s quite possible we made a mistake,” Zuckerberg replied, adding that his team would follow up after the hearing.
