    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 US presidential elections.

    Famous American actor and comedian Jim Carrey has launched a creative insult at Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, as he shared his latest cartoon on Twitter.

    "Hey #Zuckerborg. We know who you are. And we saw what you did. Here’s a little message from me in your native language," Carrey tweeted, with the message in question being a string of binary code which translates as "f*ck you".

    ​Carrey’s tweet also contained a link to an NYT investigation into Facebook’s alleged misdeeds, that was published on Wednesday.
