Thankfully, there were memes.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had his big day on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, testifying in front of the Senate judiciary and commerce committees for the Cambridge Analytica data scandal which has rocked the company for the last few weeks.
As is with most senate committees, it was long, slow, and well, boring to watch for most. But with all eyes on a figure as large as Zuckerberg, the internet was in peak meme mode.
There were plenty of robot and lizard jokes.
There were also tons of references to the 2010 film The Social Network.
Overall, Zuck’s awkwardness was completely picked apart.
Even Getty Images took a jab.
And there was plenty of Myspace nostalgia.
Zuckerberg was not the only person to get ripped apart.
Some of this Zuck testimony sounds a lot like me providing technical support to my relatives over Thanksgiving.
