Zuckerberg the Butcher

Zuckerberg the Butcher

Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg will spend 2018 trying to correct persistent problems — including the proliferation of hate speech and misinformation — that have dogged his wildly popular social network for the past two years and again force his past statement only to eat meat that he killed by himself.

“We won’t prevent all mistakes or abuse,” Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post on Thursday morning, announcing his annual personal challenge. “But we currently make too many errors enforcing our policies and preventing misuse of our tools.” He vowed to take a comprehensive look at Facebook’s role in society, recruiting experts and using his personal time to closely study issues that he said “touch on questions of history, civics, political philosophy, media, government, and of course technology.”

The announcement was something of a departure for the 33-year-old founder, who has generally used his annual New Year’s announcement for more lighthearted pursuits. In past years he has promised to run every day, start a book club, and, most memorably, to only eat meat that he killed with his own hands.

So we become interested about this annoucement and think about, how he will do it ? Zuckerbug the Butcher - that he offer this message already years before at a interview with Fortune magazine and said, "the only meat I'm eating is from animals I've killed myself." He added that he had this realization when he hosted a pig roast at his house. 

He announced in May on his Facebook page that he had "just killed a pig and a goat." The chef at a restaurant near Zuckerberg's house, called Flea Street Cafe, introduced him to local farmers, who instructed him in how to kill a chicken, a pig, and a goat. According to this report, while Zuckerberg does the actual killing, a butcher does the rest.
