Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Shows His Displeasure After WhatsApp Was Blocked In Brazil By A Judge
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has shown his frustration following the decision by a Brazilian judge to block WhatsApp (which is also owned by Zuckerberg) for more than 100 million people in the country.
Below is what he wrote on his Facebook account;
Tonight, a Brazilian judge blocked WhatsApp for more than 100 million people who rely on it in her country. We are working hard to get this block reversed. Until then, Facebook Messenger is still active and you can use it to communicate instead. This is a sad day for Brazil. Until today, Brazil has been an ally in creating an open internet.
Brazilians have always been among the most passionate in sharing their voice online. I am stunned that our efforts to protect people’s data would result in such an extreme decision by a single judge to punish every person in Brazil who uses WhatsApp.
We hope the Brazilian courts quickly reverse course. If you’re Brazilian, please make your voice heard and help your government reflect the will of its people.
