Facebook Apology


– THERE HAS BEEN
SOME CONTROVERSY AT FACEBOOK. HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THIS? THEY HAD A POLICY THAT
IF YOU WANTED A FACEBOOK PAGE, YOU HAD TO USE
YOUR REAL NAME, AND–THIS IS TRUE. AND PEOPLE WERE UPSET
ABOUT THIS. AND THIS IS TRUE ALSO. THE PEOPLE WHO WERE
THE MOST UPSET WERE DRAG QUEENS. AND I’M HAPPY TO SAY
THAT LAST WEEK, FACEBOOK CHANGED THEIR RULES, AND THEY SAID
THAT THEY WANTED TO APOLOGIZE TO THE DRAG QUEEN COMMUNITY. WE INVITED MARK ZUCKERBERG
TO BE ON THE SHOW TODAY, BUT HE COULDN’T MAKE IT,
SO… WE DID HAVE SOMEONE. THEY LET US TALK
TO THEIR VICE PRESIDENT, AND HE’S JOINING US NOW
