Pink Floyd's Roger Waters Tells Facebook To Eff Off Over Request To Use 'Another Brick In The Wall Part 2' In A Commercial
Ahhh celebrities, they're just like us, and by just like us, I mean they also apparently despise Facebook with a burning passion. While many of us can't do much about our disdain for the highly controversial platform short of deactivating our accounts and joining TikTok instead, it seems there is one person who can effectively tell the site's founder Mark Zuckerberg to go f*** himself – none other than legendary Pink Floyd co-founder, Roger Waters.
While attending a press event in support of Wikileaks founder and notable nuisance to those working at Ecuador's London Embassy, Julian Assange, Waters says the platform recently approached him offering an absurd sum of money to use “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2” for an advertisement, a proposition which evidently ticked him the hell off.
"It arrived this morning, with an offer for a huge, huge amount of money," Waters recalled. Even with this mysterious, albeit apparently massive price tag, it seems the artist still couldn't be swayed. "And the answer is, 'F*** you. No f***in' way.'" So why, exactly did he turn down this sum? None other than the site's broad reach – and his seemingly personal disdain for the Zuck.
“I only mention that because this is an insidious movement of them to take over absolutely everything,” Waters continued. "I will not be a party to this bullshit, Zuckerberg."
Although Facebook has yet to comment on the story, legend has it that if you listen closely, you can hear a gentle weeping echoing from the corner office of the company's Silicon Valley offices.
