Golden Globes: Sacha Baron Cohen criticizes Mark Zuckerberg for 'spreading Nazi propaganda'
British actor-comedian Sacha Baron Cohen took a shot at Mark Zuckerberg during his appearance at the 2020 Golden Globes, accusing the Facebook founder of 'spread Nazi propaganda' .. The star of 'Dictator' took the stage to present Taika Waititi 's' Jojo Rabbit', who was nominated in the category of best comedy or film musical when he made reference to the social media mogul.
The hero of this next movie is a naive misguided child who spreads Nazi propaganda and only has imaginary friends. His name is Mark Zuckerberg. Sorry, this is an old intro for the 'The Social Network', he said.
Cohen has previously criticized social media platforms and their founders for increasing discrimination.
The last time he took over social media platforms was in November, during his speech at the Anti-Semitism League Anti-Semitism Summit.
All this hatred and violence is being facilitated by a handful of Internet companies that represent the biggest propaganda machine in history, he said.
Cohen also penned an opinion piece in a newspaper calling out Facebook and Zuckerberg's negligent rules on posting propaganda.
At the awards, Cohen was also nominated for best acting by an actor in a limited series or television movie. He lost Russell Crowe in the category.
