The actor responds to a New York Times bombshell.
Comedian Jim Carrey delivered a message Wednesday to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg following a bombshell New York Times report detailing alleged misconduct by the company.
In a post retweeted more than four thousands times thus far, the Hollywood actor sent a coded remark to the Facebook founder alongside what appears to be a self-portrait.
Here’s a little message from me in your native language: 01000110 01110101 01100011 01101011 00100000 01111001 01101111 01110101 00101110 00100000 00001101 00001010 pic.twitter.com/EEc6ocdvBM

Referring to the company CEO as “Zuckerborg,” Carrey posted his rebuke in binary code, a language used by computers to communicate and process information.
“We know who you are. And we saw what you did,” Carrey said. “Here’s a little message from me in your native language.”
When translated, the long series of 0’s and 1’s converts simply to a two-word phrase: “Fuck you.”
The Times report surrounded actions reportedly taken by both Zuckerberg and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg in the wake of numerous recent scandals.
In an attempt to deflect negative coverage following the Cambridge Analytica debacle, which saw information on as many as 87 million Facebook users handed over to a data broker, the social media giant, among other things, employed a company to help shift public anger towards Apple and Google instead.
Other parts of the campaign included employing a “Republican opposition-research firm to discredit activist protesters, in part by linking them to the liberal financier George Soros” as well as “lobbying a Jewish civil rights group to cast some criticism of the company as anti-Semitic.”
