Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg took a jab at US lawmakers one day after giving six hours of testimony before the House Committee on Financial Services.




"I'm just coming from [Washington,] DC, so its good to be somewhere where people are creating things," Zuckerberg said as he welcomed the audience at the company's Instagram Next conference in New York.




The billionaire CEO had appeared in Congress to discuss Facebook's involvement in the cryptocurrency Libra, but much of the discussion was focused on Facebook's ongoing issues with misinformation, privacy, and discrimination on the platform.

Just one day after offering six hours of grueling testimony on Capitol Hill, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg joked about the experience in front of a friendlier audience.
"I'm just coming from [Washington] D.C., so it's good to be somewhere where people are creating things," Zuckerberg said with a smile as he welcomed the crowd to Facebook's Instagram Next conference in New York City on Thursday.
Zuckerberg's remarks came just a day after he appeared in front of Congress on Wednesday to testify on Facebook's plans involving the Libra cryptocurrency project — but ended up speaking on a wider range of topics related to Facebook's ongoing issues with misinformation, privacy, and discrimination.
