Facebook has declined to delete a fake video of Mark Zuckerberg.

“How will Facebook handle AI-generated fake videos? Well, don’t expect the company to take them down. On Tuesday, Facebook said it would leave up an AI-generated video falsely depicting company CEO Mark Zuckerberg talking about an Illuminati-like secret society out to control the world. “Imagine this for second: One man with total control of billions of people’s stolen data,” the fake Zuckerberg says in the video. “All their secrets.
