The interview was held before Zuckerberg was expected to appear before Congress in the U.S. to testify in the Cambridge Analytical issue.

The actor's profane message became his latest jab at the social media giant, as earlier this year he deleted his Facebook account and dumped his shares of Facebook stock in response to what he said was the company's profiting from "Russian interference" in the 2016 USA presidential elections.

The ban came after Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, indicated that Facebook "trafficked" in users' personal lives, according to The New York Times.

Earlier this spring, Apple CEO Tim Cook criticized Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a very public manner related to its privacy scandals and the Cambridge Analytica affair.

Reacting to Mr Cook's remarks, Mr Zuckerberg had said his remarks about the social networking giant were "extremely glib".

And to make matter worse for Zuckerberg, Cook had clarified that his company did not consider consumer data a source of income.

The Times reported on Wednesday about Facebook's response to Russian-led misinformation efforts ahead of the 2016 election.

But Cook and Zuckerberg have traded barbs for years. A right-leaning news site called the NTK Network, affiliated with Definers, published "dozens of articles" that criticized Apple as well as Google "for unsavory business practices", including one that slammed Cook for hypocrisy over his stance on privacy, per the New York Times. Cook said in an interview with Charlie Rose in 2014 that "When an online service is free, you're not the customer".

Facebook is having some rough times when it comes to privacy. "I think it's the most ridiculous concept".

What do you guys think? "If you were in alignment with them, then they'd make their products a lot cheaper!"

Mark Zuckerberg has apparently ordered the Facebook management team to use Android phones instead of iPhones.
