Its not exactly controversial to say that Facebook has had a tough couple of years. Between scandal, after political scandal, with growing concerns about the power they have and impact they have on society.

Voicing his concerns was actor and comedian Sacha Boron Cohen, who has emerged as a staunch advocate against the company. He spoke out last November at the Anti-Defamation League, citing Facebook as “greatest propaganda machine in history”. The actor followed that up with a tweet saying “Facebook needs to be regulated by governments, not ruled by an emperor”, and it turns out Elon Musk agrees.
In response to Cohen’s tweet, Musk simply retweeted, and added that Facebook is “lame”, along with the hashtag “#DeleteFacebook.” This is not the first time the Tesla and Space X CEO has derided the social media platform: in 2018, Musk deleted his profile, and the pages for his companies, saying he didn’t “like Facebook. Gives me the willies. Sorry.”

No argument there, Elon.
