Less than 24 hours after a two-day Congressional hearing regarding Russian meddling in the 2016 election, among other issues, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has caused an uproar by “liking” a photo of a Siberian Husky.
The husky, believed to be a three-year-old male named Sergey, is thought to have ties to a cold, shadowy location deep in the heart of Russia.
“This might seem like a small act, but it’s a slippery slope,” said Illinois Senator Dick Durbin. “One minute he’s liking a photo of a Siberian Husky, next thing you know he’s clicking a ‘love’ reaction to videos of Vladimir Putin’s cat Fluffy.”
Lawmakers are now worried that Russia’s meddling goes much deeper. Alaskan police recently discovered that many of the dog’s kin have already penetrated the state’s transportation system.
Within minutes of “liking” the post, Zuckerberg rescinded his reaction.
“Liking that post is perhaps my greatest regret,” said Zuckerberg. “I should have spotted him sooner, but we are currently cooperating with the U.S. Veterinarians Administration to have all Siberian Huskies in the country put down.”
