Zuckerberg made the remarks at City Hall, the report said, aimed at easing Facebook employees' anger at the company's head of public policy, (Joel Kaplan), Joel Kaplan.
Kaplan appeared at a hearing last week in support of his friend Brett Cavano (Brett Kavanaugh), who was recently nominated by President Trump to the Supreme Court but was soon charged with sexual assault. In fact, Kaplan sat in two rows behind Cavano as he testified on charges of sexual assault.
This time, after attending the hearing in Kaplan, many employees thought that Kaplan’s presence meant that Facebook as a company supported Cavano. They expressed their dissatisfaction in the company's internal message board and reported it directly to Zuckerberg.
According to people familiar with the matter, more than 600 Facebook employees arrived at the City Hall on Friday, and some foreign employees attended the conference in the form of a conference call.
