Creepy deepfake shows Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg thanking Democrats for their ‘INACTION’ on antitrust legislation

A deepfake version of Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg thanked Congressional Democrats for their service and inaction on antitrust legislation. The eerie, convincing clip is the work of a liberal advocacy group called Demand Progress Action, which used deepfake technology to turn an actor into Zuckerberg – who thanks Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for holding up two major pieces of antitrust legislation this year. ‘Over the past five years, Congress has held over 30 hearings designed to hold Big Tech accountable,’ fake Zuckerberg says in the ad, which the liberal group plans to use for television ads in New York and Washington, D.C. ‘Sometimes you land a punch.’ A clip of Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez grilling the tech executive about fact checking political advertisements briefly plays. ‘Most of the time, it felt like playing paddy cake,’ fake Zuckerberg boasts.
