HOLD MARK ACCOUNTABLE SIGN OUT DEACTIVATE FOR 24 HRS (TRUTH DOES NOT NEED AN ALLY) Mark is Trump's Ally Facebook employees are so upset with Mark Zuckerberg’s decision to take no action on Donald Trump’s posts, that they are participating in a “virtual walkout” in a show of protest against the company, The New York Times reports.

Facebook workers, most of whom are still working from home, are taking the day off and indicating in out of office messages that they are “out of the office in a show of protest,” according to the report. Employees are also working on “a list of demands for management.” 

The walkout comes days after Zuckerberg announced Friday evening that Trump’s posts, which Twitter said broke its rules regarding “glorification of violence,” didn’t violate Facebook’s standards. Zuckerberg said he had a “visceral negative reaction” to Trump’s “inflammatory rhetoric,” but ultimately opted to leave the posts up untouched. Axios later reported that Zuckerberg had spoken to Trump on the phone before announcing the decision.

This isn’t the first time Facebook employees have clashed with Zuckerberg over the company’s treatment of Trump. Hundreds of employees signed an open letter last fall that publicly criticized his decision to allow politicians to lie in advertisements.

But the latest controversy, which comes as Facebook employees have been working from home amid nationwide protests, appears to be escalating into a new territory. At least two “senior” employees have threatened to quit, NYT reports. Many other Facebook employees have publicly tweeted their disagreement.
