It Takes Over 7 Million Dollars a Year to Keep People From Punching Mark Zuckerberg

Sometimes I have to give the mainstream media credit. Just last week I was wondering, how on earth does that little fucker not get punched every single day of his life? I mean, if I ever met him there’s no way I wouldn’t pretend to be nice then clock him when he went to shake my hand (and no, this would have nothing to do with politics, it’d be the destroying small publishers thing). One good punch would be so worth the minor criminal charges and the proper ass kicking I’m sure I’d then take, especially if I got it on video. Come to think of it, that’s gotta be like the holy grail of future viral videos. I mean, does anybody like this fucking guy? Anyone? He’s just so goddamn unlikable and has such a uniquely punchable face. Look, I’ve never punched anyone in my life but this dork? I mean, I wouldn’t really want my wife to cheat on me but if like Chadwick Bozeman somehow wanted her I’d be like, yeah, free pass. I’m not a violent man but Zuckerberg’s face is sort of like that.

Anyway, over 7 mill a year, that’s how much it takes to prevent this dude from taking a daily beating. I had a question, and your fake news peddling asses were all over it. Over seven million freaking dollars. (from The Guardian):

“Facebook increased its spending on security for Mark Zuckerberg by 50% last year, the company has disclosed, paying more than $7.3m (£5.1m) to protect its top executive.

The security funds were required “due to specific threats to his safety arising directly as a result of his position as our founder, chairman, and CEO”, the under-fire social media company said in a new filing to US regulators.

Facebook also said it spent more than $1.5m (£1m) on Zuckerberg’s travel aboard private jets in 2017, meaning that in all the company has spent about $20m on security and private planes for Zuckerberg since 2015.

Security measures at Zuckerberg’s home in California are paid for by the company, according to the filing, as well as bodyguards who accompany the 33-year-old on his travels outside Facebook’s headquarters.

“We require these security measures for the company’s benefit because of the importance of Mr Zuckerberg to Facebook, and we believe that the costs of this overall security program are appropriate and necessary,” the company said.
