‘Blood on your hands’

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg — the founder Facebook — was the center of a dramatic Capitol Hill hearing Wednesday, where lawmakers and families of children harmed by sexual exploitation of children on social media took tech CEOs to task. 

“Mr. Zuckerberg, you and the companies before us. I know you don’t mean it to be so, but you have blood on your hands,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham at the start of the hearing. “You have a product that’s killing people.” 

Graham’s comments were applause from the gallery. WATCH

In another stunning moment, Zuckerberg stood up and apologized. Sen. Josh Hawley pointed to Internal Meta studies showing a high percentages of young girls were exposed to unwanted nudity, sexual advances and self-harm content in just one week.

Zuckerberg stood from his seat and spoke directly to the audience, where families of some victims had come to watch the proceedings: “I’m sorry for everything you’ve all been through. No one should have to go through the things that your families suffered.” WATCH
