Mark Zuckerberg Defends Donald Trump Supporters — What Do YOU Think??

no title

Mark Zuckerberg isn't about to unfriend someone just because they have different views.

This week, billionaire investor Peter Thiel came under fire for his $1.25 million pledge to Donald Trump's campaign — well after several women accused the Republican nominee of sexual assault.

After news of the PayPal co-founder's large donation came out, many questioned whether Facebook should reevaluate Thiel's status as a board member — but according to the big man in charge, the Trump supporter isn't going anywhere.

On Tuesday, Zuckerberg commented on the controversy in an internal memo to Facebook employees, in which he chalked up the board member's support of the candidate as part of the company's "diversity."

In a leaked screenshot of the CEO's post, which the social media giant confirmed to CBS News was authentic, he wrote:

"We can't create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half of the country because they back a political candidate. There are many reasons a person might support Trump that do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault."

Maybe not, but it sure seems that way by this point, doesn't it?

Z-berg gave a few reasons why a billionaire like Thiel would support the GOP nominee, like being one of the few people who would benefit from his proposed tax plan. He added:

Gawker Founder Claps Back At Peter Thiel's Secret War Against The Company — Says He's A 'Thin-Skinned Billionaire'

nick denton open letter

Dramaaa!

On Thursday, Gawker Media founder Nick Denton took to his site to SLAM his newly revealed nemesis, who is the tech billionaire Peter Thiel, for bankrolling lawsuits against the digital news operation. Oh snap!

As you may know, this beef all started when Thiel gave an interview to the New York Times and accused the media site of outing him as gay and causing pain to several of his dear friends. Obviously, Denton was not thrilled about this — especially since this bit of legal drama comes not long after Hulk Hogan's major victory over Gawker.
