Mark Zuckerberg says that nobody has been fired at Facebook over the Cambridge Analytica scandal

  • Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was asked whether anyone had been fired at Facebook over the Cambridge Analytica data scandal.
  • Zuckerberg said that nobody had, but that he was personally taking responsibility for the scandal and wasn’t looking to “throw anyone else under the bus.”

Mark Zuckerberg said on Wednesday that he has not fired any Facebook employees because of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

In response to a question from Business Insider on a conference call asking if anyone had been fired over the revelation that a British data firm had taken user data from up to 87 million users or other data privacy issues, the Facebook CEO said that he has not fired anyone.

“I have not, due to the CA situation, yet,” Zuckerberg said. “We’re still working through this. At the end of the day, this is my responsibility. There have been a bunch of questions about that. I started this place, I run it, I’m responsible for what happens here.”

“I’m not looking to throw anyone else under the bus for mistakes we made here,” he continued. Additional reporting by Steve Kovach.
