How dare non-Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg be so impertinent as to have the same name as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg! The nerve! The social networking site has retaliated against NFF-Zuckerberg for the very impudence of being born and named thusly by booting him from Facebook. That oughta teach him a lesson.
NFF-Zuckerberg just happens to be a laywer, reports local Indianapolis news WISH-TV, and was given the boot on Monday. This is the second time Facebook hasn’t been able to handle the fact that he has the same name as FF-Zuckerberg.
“I was originally denied an account with Facebook two years ago because of my name, and I had to send them copies of my driver’s license, birth certificate, and Indianapolis Bar Association license just to get them to believe that I exist and to allow me to set up my page,” Zuckerberg said in a news release.
“We went through this for about 4 months,” he told 24-Hour News 8.
“I finally wrote them a threatening letter,” Zuckerberg said, “and the next thing I knew, I was on.”
Facebook has responded to WISH-TV saying they’ve looked into the matter and should be reactivating NFF-Zuckerberg’s account soon and have apologized for not realizing there is more than one Mark Zuckerberg in the whole entire world.
