The Pink Floyd frontman has refused to allow Instagram to use the title “Another Brick in the Wall Part 2” in an advertisement, and does not hide his contempt for Mark Zuckerberg.
This is a battle we never expected. The singer and bassist of the iconic group Pink Floyd, Roger Waters, has indeed just attacked the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg. During an event intended to support the creator of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, Pink Floyd frontman described Zuckerberg as “One of the most powerful idiots in the world. “ Just that.
To understand this affair, we must go back to its premises. On the set of the event dedicated to Julian Assange, Roger Waters explained that the creator of Facebook had wanted to arrogate the rights to the song “Another Brick in the Wall Part 2” in a promotional video for Instagram, in exchange “A huge, huge amount of money. “
The leader of Pink Floyd does not want to be “accomplice of this bullshit ”
Obviously, the founder of the cult rock group does not really carry Zuckerberg in his heart, and explained that he had refused this request, while criticizing the American giant of social networks. The musician said Pink Floyd's song message literally conflicted with Zuckerberg's goals. “They want to use it to make Facebook and Instagram more powerful than they already are”, he said, before adding not wanting to be “Accomplice of this bullshit, Zuckerberg.”
Zuckerberg was a little prick when he was grading co-eds. Being very rich changes nothing, he’ll always be a little prick! pic.twitter.com/tt542qWkaZ

As noted Lemon Juicer, this statement is eminently political, part of a pro-Assange event. As a reminder, the American journalist had revealed military secrets seven years ago already, and is currently imprisoned in the United Kingdom pending trial. Numerous voices are raised around the world to demand that the proceedings against him be lifted, while respecting the freedom of the press.
