Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was targeted by Sacha Baron Cohen in a tweet showing the tech billionaire shaking hands with Donald Trump.
The British comedian, whose latest movie, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, was released last month, suggested that Zuckerberg should be the next to lose his job after defeating Trump in the US election.
Baron Cohen tweeted, “One falls. One goes.”
The tweet attracted more than 130,000 likes and 17,500 Retweets as of Monday evening.
The comedian tweeted the post less than two months after he shared a picture of Zuckerberg wearing white face paint.
“The only thing more terrifying than Mark Zuckerberg browsing white faces … is white supremacy and lies to Facebook every day,” Baron Cohen wrote in a tweet.
“This Wednesday September 16th, I freeze my Instagram telling Marc #StopHateForProfit.
The tweets are coming just under a year later Baron Cohen claimed Adolf Hitler He would have been allowed to announce his “solution to the Jewish problem” if Facebook had been around in the 1930s.
The only thing more terrifying than Mark Zuckerberg’s white-faced ride …
It is white supremacy and lies, Facebook spreads everyday.
This Wednesday 16th September, I freeze my Instagram for letting Mark know #StopHateForProfit.

Describing social media as the “greatest propaganda machine in history,” Baron Cohen said, “If you pay for them, Facebook will run whatever“ political ”ad you want, even if it’s a lie. And they’ll also help you target meticulously those lies to its users for maximum effect.
Baron Cohen was working on Disagreement with Donald Trump Last month after the US president called him a “creepy” and a “fake man.”
“I don’t find you funny either,” the actor said to Trump, before referring to him as a “racist clown.”
The two exchanged insults after British comedian targeted President Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer in a prank for his latest movie.
