Here’s What Happens When You Try to Block Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook

Ever wonder what would happen if you tried to block Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook? Well, apparently it’s impossible. One guy on Twitter, known only as Johnny Xmas, tried blocking the Facebook founder and received the following message, “Block Error. Sorry, there was a problem while blocking Mark Zuckerberg. Please try again.”

So what’s a guy to do? Well, apparently if you’re a 21st-century man, your only recourse is to seek help on other social media sites. So that’s just what he did. He went to Twitter, shared that error message with everyone, and said, “Help, I’m being repressed.” And it’s true. You can’t block him. William Turton viewed this tweet and decided to put that theory to the test.

Alas, he wasn’t successful in blocking the 32-year-old computer programmer, “I could block Sheryl Sandberg, and Zuckerberg’s wife, Priscilla Chan” he reported on Tuesday, “But not Zuck. He is invulnerable to blockage.” It seems when it comes to Facebook, he has what’s known as cyber blocking  immunity.


So now some people have decided to get to the bottom of this mysterious circumstance. They messaged him on Facebook, asking why people can’t block him. However, he has yet to respond to this question. Considering he created the site, you’d think he’d be good at using it, but such is not the case. His posts are abysmal, which is why so many people want to block him.

In the spirit of curiosity, William Turton tried to see if there were other people on Facebook who are immune to being blocked, but thus far he has yet to find anyone else. Personally, I think we should be able to block him, not because I think his posts are bad but just because it’s only fair. If you can block everyone else, you should be able to block him too. But I guess that’s life for you.
