  • After it was revealed

  • that 87 million Facebook users' data was compromised

  • by Cambridge Analytica, everyone wanted answers.

  • And you could tell that

  • because everyone was posting about it on Facebook.

  • And when the American people

  • are deeply concerned about something,

  • you know what Congress does, nothing.

  • But in this case, in this case,

  • they summoned Mr. Facebook himself

  • to the principal's office

  • to explain what Facebook is doing with our information.

  • And I'm not gonna lie, I don't know if it's just because

  • I've never seen him with other humans before,

  • but it genuinely looks like Zuckerberg sent

  • a robot version of himself.

  • Like, look at him. He looks like he's in Westworld right now.

  • Look at that.

  • In fact, in fact, can we play the audio from that clip?

  • (robotic clanking, whirring)

  • (whirring)

  • Yeah, I thought so. I thought so.

  • Now, now, look, I-I think we can all agree

  • that because Facebook has so much power and influence,

  • they need to be held accountable.

  • They need to be accountable to someone.

  • But I think we can also agree that the people

  • that Facebook is accountable to

  • maybe shouldn't be these guys.

  • I'm communicating with my friends on Facebook

  • and indicate that, uh,

  • I love a certain kind of chocolate,

  • and, uh, all of a sudden,

  • I start receiving advertisements

  • for chocolate.

  • What if I don't want to receive

  • those commercial advertisements?

  • What?

  • Then just stop writing about chocolate.

  • I'm sure your friends will be okay

  • not hearing about it for once.

  • "I love chocolate. It's 5:00 a.m., Senator, go to bed."

  • It's like Forrest Gump became a senator.

  • What is this?

  • I love chocolate, so much chocolate.

  • You know, in a way, in a way, I feel like Zuckerberg

  • has already experienced the worst punishment of all.

  • He had to spend four hours

  • explaining Facebook to senior citizens.

  • That's... that's it.

  • He served his time, people.
