Roger Waters to Mark Zuckerberg


‘F*ck You!’ Roger Waters Tells Zuckerberg He Can’t Use Iconic Pink Floyd Song for Ads Another Brick in the Wall, written by Waters, was first released in 1979 on Pink Floyd’s rock opera “The Wall.” Apart from being a protest song against abusive schooling, the piece is often regarded as a countercultural manifesto against the depersonalization of an individual in society. Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters has bluntly denied Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s request to obtain the rights to the second part of Another Brick in the Wall for a “huge amount of money” for use in the company’s promotional movie, citing the company’s censorship policies and its desire for ever greater control in a wide variety of areas. Speaking at the forum in support of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, Waters read out a letter from Zuckerberg, which he said he recently received by email. “It’s a request for the rights to use my song, ‘Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2’ in the making of a film to promote Instagram,” Waters said. “So it’s a missive from Mark Zuckerberg to me – arrived this morning, with an offer of a huge, huge amount of money, and the answer is – f**k you! No f***ing way!”
