Mark Zuckerberg calls Breonna Taylor decision ‘painful reminder’ of injustice

Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg reportedly called a grand jury’s failure to indict any cops for killing Breonna Taylor a “painful reminder” of the need for criminal justice reform.

The billionaire CEO condemned the ruling that sparked protests around the country this week even as Facebook restricted how its employees can express support for the Black Lives Matter movement within the company.

Zuckerberg started a Thursday all-hands meeting by addressing the Kentucky grand jury’s decision to charge only one of the cops involved in the botched Louisville raid in which Taylor, 26, was shot to death. The former officer, Brett Hankison, was charged only for shooting into a different apartment.

“The idea that someone can be killed, murdered, and no one in our system is held accountable for it, I think just really goes to show why it’s so important to fight to make sure that Black Lives Matter,” Zuckerberg said, according to transcripts posted on Twitter by BuzzFeed News reporter Ryan Mac.

“This shows that it’s not just policing, it’s also the criminal justice system, and other systems across society where there is embedded systemic racism that needs to be changed,” he reportedly added. “This is just another reminder of that — another painful reminder.”

While Zuckerberg repeated his support for the Black Lives Matter movement on the call, Facebook issued new rules this week barring employees from using their profile pictures on the company’s internal social network to show support for that or other causes.

Facebook staffers are now required to use an image of themselves or their initials on the corporate Workplace platform, meaning they can’t use political images as their profile photos, according to reports. Facebook will reportedly offer some pre-approved frames that can be added to profile pictures, including a Black Lives Matter-themed one.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday. Its stock price was up about 0.7 percent at $251.25 as of 11:44 a.m.
