So you agree. You think you’re really rich, Mark Zuckerberg.
The Facebook CEO has vowed to give away 99% of his Facebook shares in honor of his newborn daughter Max. And he announced it, of course, on Facebook, in a very sentimental note.
After paragraphs of uplifting bullshit, Zuckerberg finally gets to the good part. “We will give 99% of our Facebook shares — currently about $45 billion — during our lives to advance this mission. We know this is a small contribution compared to all the resources and talents of those already working on the issues. But we want to do what we can, working alongside many others.”
Okay, that’s great but since when is $45 billion a small amount of money? For those of us eating ramen noodles for lunch, Mark, that’s pretty fucking rude.
The best part of this post is the “Who’s Who” of celebrity philanthropists sounding off in the comments.
There’s everyone from Melinda Gates and Arianna Huffington and Sheryl Sandberg leaning in to add their comments.
Even if she’s out about $45 billion from her trust fund, baby Max seems pretty lucky to have the Winklevoss twins’ arch-nemesis as a dad.
