Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is responding forcefully after incidents in which employees crossed out “Black Lives Matter” and wrote “All Lives Matter” on the walls of the company’s Menlo Park, Calif., campus.
Facebook, whose staff is 2% black, is investigating the racially charged incidents in which the movement’s slogan was defaced. Those actions have been a “deeply hurtful and tiresome experience for the black community,” Zuckerberg said in an internal post obtained by Gizmodo.
Facebook declined to comment.
“We’ve never had rules around what people can write on our walls,” said Zuckerberg in the post. “We expect everybody to treat each other with respect.”
