Mark Hamill Quits Facebook Due to Political Ad Policy

Mark Hamill is done with Facebook.

The 68-year-old Star Wars actor recently took to Twitter to explain his decision to fans.

“So disappointed that #MarkZuckerberg values profit more than truthfulness that I’ve decided to delete my @Facebook account,” Mark Hamill wrote.

He added, “I know this is a big ‘Who Cares?’ for the world at large, but I’ll sleep better at night. #PatriotismOverProfits 🇲🇾>💰.”

“In the absence of regulation, Facebook and other companies are left to design their own policies,” Facebook’s director of product management, Rob Leathern, said in a blog post. “We have based ours on the principle that people should be able to hear from those who wish to lead them, warts and all, and that what they say should be scrutinized and debated in public.”
