Mark Zuckerberg’s apology at U.S. Senate explained: Here’s what happened l U.S. Senate hearing
During a U.S. Senate hearing focused on combating online child sexual exploitation, the CEOs of Meta, X, TikTok, Snap, and Discord were subjected to rigorous questioning. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, took the stand and addressed the audience during the Senate Judiciary Committee session in Washington. Inside the hearing chamber, numerous parents stood, anticipating the arrival of the CEOs, clutching images of their children.
Last year, the committee endorsed multiple bills, among them one aimed at revoking tech firms’ immunity from civil and criminal liabilities under laws concerning child sexual abuse material, initially proposed in 2020. However, none of these bills have yet been enacted into law.
