Joel Kaplan, a senior executive at Facebook, attended a recent congressional hearing to support his friend, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Cue the freakout!
Following the appearance, many employees felt that Kaplan’s presence at the hearing signaled that Facebook as a company had endorsed Judge Kavanaugh. They expressed their discontent in internal company message boards as well as directly to CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Signaled? The dude just sat there. Chillin’.
If the media reported that Kaplan sat in a Golden Corral eating a piece a pie from the Brass Bell Bakery, does that signal Facebook’s endorsement of the exceptional North Carolina-based buffet restaurant chain?
