Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters ridiculed Big Tech oligarch Mark Zuckerberg as an “idiot” and a “little prick” after the latter sent a personal request to use “Another Brick in The Wall, Part 2” in promotional videos for Instagram.
“This is something that I actually put in my folder when I came out here today,” Waters said at a recent pro-Julian Assange event, holding up a piece of paper. “It’s a request for the rights to use my song, ‘Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2’ in the making of a film to promote Instagram. So it’s a missive from Mark Zuckerberg to me – arrived this morning, with an offer of a huge, huge amount of money, and the answer is – f**k you! No f***ing way!”
The Facebook message stated in part, “We want to thank you for considering this project. We feel that the core sentiment of this song is still so prevalent and so necessary today, which speaks to how timeless the work is.”

“I only mention that because this is an insidious movement of them to take over absolutely everything,” Waters stated. “I will not be a party to this bullshit, [Mark] Zuckerberg . . . And yet, they want to use it to make Facebook and Instagram more powerful than it already is, so that it can continue to censor all of us in this room and prevent this story about Julian Assange getting out into the general public so the general public can go, ‘What? No. No More.’”
“How did this little prick who started out as ‘She’s pretty, we’ll give her a four out of five, she’s ugly, we’ll give her a four out of five,’ how did we give him any power?” Waters went on to ask. “And yet here he is, one of the most powerful idiots in the world.”
