Pink Floyd Star Says ‘No f**kin’ Way’ to Facebook’s Request

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg offered Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters a “huge amount of money” to use one of the band’s iconic songs in an advertisement and his response was “no f**kin’ way.” 

While speaking at an event supporting Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, Waters revealed that the social media giant wanted to use the 1979 classic “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2” for an Instagram ad, and Zuckerberg himself had sent him a rights request.

Waters held up the letter and said it had arrived the morning of the event, but claimed he wasn’t tempted by the “huge, huge amount of money,” the tech mogul offered him. “And the answer is, ‘F–k you. No f–in’ way,’” he exclaimed. “I only mention that because this is an insidious movement of them to take over absolutely everything.” 

Waters noted that he has the ability to control the rights to his songs and doesn’t plan to use them to help the company assert more global influence. “I will not be a party to this bulls**t, Zuckerberg,” he spat. 

He mockingly shared a line from the correspondence. “We feel that the core sentiment of this song is still so prevalent and necessary today, which speaks to how timeless the work [is],” but went on to knock the social platform for censoring information.  

“And yet they want to use it to make Facebook and Instagram even bigger and more powerful than it already is … so that it can continue to censor all of us in this room and prevent this story about Julian Assange getting out into the general public so the general public can go, ‘What? No. No More.’”

His distaste for the company extends to its founder. “How did this little p***k who started off by saying ‘she’s pretty, we’ll give her a four out of five, she’s ugly, we’ll give her a one,’ how did he get any power?” Waters questioned. “And yet here he is, one of the most powerful idiots in the world.”

What was the Zuck thinking? Roger Waters does not think highly of those who belong to the decendants of Kind David.

Sounds like he doens’t like the decendants of lots of folks. At least he can’t be bought by the big tech censors. You’ve got to give him credit for that. I do anyway.

When will the CEOs of Big Biased Tech be held about their complete violation of our 1st amendment rights. The minimum is break them up and show them this is America. They helped steal America from us.

Why would Zuck want to use a song which puts those who oppose his agenda as “bricks in the wall”?

Bravo Roger, I am positive that little short punk is “boiling” He is petty he can’t take rejection Bravo – Bravo Roger again and again. Fact is I always think he is android, just look at him and his eyes he is not real. Then what yo expect from the tech tief. He pay off two brother who taught of ide of the Facebook, it wasn’t him. Then he purchased for high price the girls and boys who are having brain (not like he the short idiot) and they rolling the company. And that is a FACT!. He is android, he is thief, he is a evil traitor, he should be KICKED out from this magnificent Country – AMERICA
