#DELETEFACEBOOK TRENDS AFTER REPORT THAT MARK ZUCKERBERG HELD SECRETIVE MEETINGS WITH CONSERVATIVE INFLUENCERS

BY MELISSA LEMIEUX ON 10/14/19 AT 7:46 PM EDT

On Monday afternoon #DeleteFacebook made a comeback as a Twitter trend after it was revealed that Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg had held informal meetings and off-the-record dinners with conservative journalists, commenters and at least one Republican congressman in a Politico article, including Tucker Carlson and Lindsay Graham.

Many in the hashtag either reacted with scorn to the trend or in a supportive manner.

"I stopped actively posting on @facebook in 2016 after it was revealed that it helped elect the orange fecal smear. Now #DeleteFacebook seems like the best course of action. Yes, I'm still on IG but I feel it does less to push the trump agenda. Less older white supremacists", said actress Yvette Nicole Brown.

Others supported Zuckerberg's dinners. "Don't back down Zuckerburg! You don't have to worry about liberals actually following through with their #DeleteFacebook threats. Not a chance in Hell they can go without harassing people who don't think the same way they do. All social media platforms are safe," said Mary Mariacher.

According to Politico, the dinners began in July and are apparently Zuckerberg's attempt at circumventing the notion that Facebook is biased against conservatives. In June, President Trump threatened to sue Facebook and Google for said perceived biases.

3. Zuckerberg is so shady.

Facebook confirms Donald Trump can lie in ads, but he can't curse.
