Israeli headquarters of Facebook vandalised


Facebook’s Israeli headquarters in capital Tel Aviv city has been vandalised during a protest over the social networking website’s failure to delete pages, inciting violence against Jews and Israelis, a media report said.

Israeli citizen Rotem Gez, spray-painted bloody handprints and the slogan “blood on your hands” on the social media giant’s building at the Rothschild Boulevard street, the Jerusalem Post reported.

He also alleged that the company keeps controversial pages online because they were good for traffic.

In 2011, Gez legally changed his name to ‘Mark Zuckerberg‘, so that in a lawsuit Facebook was filing against him they would have to say they were suing someone with the same name as their founder.

The company sued Gez over a system he created to sell “likes” for posts that users make on the site.
